METIS Aerospace to contribute RF expertise to Leonardo as part of exciting new counter UAV R&D project for RAF 12 Sep 2019
Following the recent announcement by the Secretary of State for Defence, Ben Wallace, of the R&D contract awarded to Leonardo for the development of a world-leading counter UAV system for the Royal Air Force, METIS Aerospace are excited to announce our contribution to the Leonardo effort with the provision of RF detection, hardware, expertise and support.
METIS Aerospace’s SKYPERION system is a proven drone Detect, Track and Identify (DTI) capability that was instrumental in solving the crisis at London Gatwick Airport in December 2018 along with complimentary DTI sensors and now part of a permanent solution. Additionally, METIS’s SKYPERION has provided capability at other high-profile events. We look forward to continuing the development of SKYPERION to assist in the DTI of malicious and accidental drone activity.
