Sensofusion updates AIRFENCE
Sensofusion is set to introduce the latest version of AIRFENCE, its counter-UAS solution designed to protect armed forces, police, airports, prisons and national guards from rogue UAS, the company announced on 19 September.
AIRFENCE 6.0 is designed to automatically detect, locate, track and defeat unwanted UAS. Improvements over the previous version include enhanced speed and range of detection, and the ability to target individual UAS, regardless of what frequency band they hop to when counter-attacking.
Kaveh Mahdavi, VP, Sensofusion, said: ‘With the latest version, AIRFENCE pushes the boundaries of innovation. We are not selling theoretical solutions in the form of shock videos and flashy presentations that you see all over the internet — AIRFENCE has the largest user base for counter-UAS technology in the world with hundreds of installations and those numbers continue to grow. I am very pleased with our team's achievements in the field of RF as it represents the best of the best.’
