Drones neutralised [IDEX19D3]

19 February 2019

Poland's Advanced Protection System (APS, Stand 06-B16), in partnership with its distributor Anker Sikkerhet AS, has just completed the installation of its Ctrl+Sky system at Sola Airport, Stavanger, Norway.

The Ctrl+Sky 3D radar, mounted on a mast, will monitor the airspace for drones and birds, while the system's CyView software will automatically inform airport personnel of any unwanted intrusions. The radio frequency (RF) sensors will provide an additional layer of information on possible drone activities. Collected data will be archived and statistics can be retrieved for improved situational awareness and enhanced airport safety management.

The Ctrl+Sky multi-sensor system has been selected by Avinor, the company that owns and manages Norway's airports. An eight-year contract was awarded and Stavanger was chosen to be the first airport to deploy the system.

The military-grade counter-drone system has been sold to military, law enforcement and security agencies in several countries. Its 3D radar, coupled with RF sensors, cameras, acoustic sensors and automated jammers, enables reliable detection and neutralisation of any drone, whether commercial, radio-controlled or autonomous, in any weather conditions.
