OpenWorks Engineering, creator of the SkyWall Patrol net capture system, has announced that it will be collaborating on the new ALADDIN counter-UAV system.
ALADDIN is a joint effort, with a number of other partners helping develop the technology.
It will be demonstrated later this year in Greece, with the two systems joining via use of the SkyLink module.
SkyWall Patrol gives a mobile operator the ability to physically capture a drone in a net, used in conjunction with electronic countermeasures for a layered defence, or in environments where electronic attack cannot be deployed.
ALADDIN will focus on detection, classification and localisation; neutralisation; and command and control.
Neil Armstrong, director and founder of OpenWorks, commented: “OpenWorks is delighted to be a part of the ALADDIN project. SkyWall Patrol together with SkyLink will allow detection and tracking of a drone, to end with a known outcome – capturing the drone in a net.
“We are very much looking forward to building on our existing relationships with CS Systems and are excited to show what SkyWall has to offer when integrated”.
