Sensofusion launches AIRFENCE 5.0
Sensofusion has released AIRFENCE 5.0, an advanced counter-UAS radio frequency (RF) technology.
The system is designed to protect militaries, airports, prisons and private companies from rogue UAS in illegal and potentially life-threatening situations.
AIRFENCE 5.0 includes updates over its previous evolution, focused on increasing the detection rate and level of data packets received, enabling real-time actionable insights. The platform offers new and improved directional finding, long-distance jamming capabilities, certified ruggedisation, and compact setup and installation.
Tuomas Rasila, founder and CEO of Sensofusion, said: ‘Since the original launch of AIRFENCE ONE, Sensofusion has invested fully in solving the UAS problem set by means of RF detection and counterattack. Our latest AIRFENCE platform builds on advancements we have been making for the past few years and incorporates the lessons learned from key projects with the FAA, NASA, the US Marine Corps and the European Commission.
‘Given the depth and precision of the current technology, we have a limited supply of AIRFENCE 5.0 before the end of the calendar year. We anticipate fulfilling orders for more than 100 systems before the close of 2017 as demand for our product continues to scale.’
