SkyWall Auto Deployed to Protect World Leaders at the 2022 G7 Summit in Germany
SkyWall Auto is part of Liteye System’s Counter UAS Defense Solutions
CENTENNIAL, COLORADO, UNITED STATES, September 19, 2022/ EINPresswire.com / -- As leaders from around the world visited the G7 meeting in Germany, the continued use of drones in the Ukraine conflict proves the threat of drone attack is ever present. SkyWall Auto Response was deployed as part of the security architecture and successfully protected the G7 Summit from unauthorized drones.
“ Liteye has been partnered with OpenWorks to bring their capabilities to the C-UAS systems we provide in the USA since 2018.” Said Kenneth Geyer, CEO of Liteye “It is exciting to see SkyWall Auto chosen to protect VIPs at the G7.”
SkyWall Auto provides a mobile and fast response that can optically track drones at long ranges and then capture a drone should one enter the protected area. The handheld SkyWall Patrol system has been deployed at several G7 events since 2017 and this is the first publicly releasable deployment of the advanced autonomous SkyWall Auto system. SkyWall Auto Response is a tripod or vehicle-mounted solution that can rapidly capture multiple drone targets in projectile-delivered nets. The built-in AI-powered optical tracking system uses EO and IR cameras with automatic targeting to lock onto any incoming drone, allowing the operator to make a threat assessment with high-quality imagery and engage if desired.
This advanced capability can cover a large area and the targeting system can be networked to integrate with additional detection capabilities and be remotely operated from a central command post.
The SkyWall Auto can be positioned and deployed close to any vulnerable point or hidden in plain sight under pop-up covers until required, protecting it from prying eyes and the elements.
The SkyWall Auto system has also been delivered in towed trailer configurations and can be permanently installed on buildings or semi-permanent containers.
