CPNI Approval for METIS Aerospace’s Drone Detection Solution 22 Jan 2020
METIS Aerospace has been certified by the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI) for their SKYPERION drone detection solution. SKYPERION accurately and efficiently detects and locates both a drone and its pilot. It identifies radio frequency (RF) signals of interest and alerts an operator. As an agnostic system, the RF detection capability works independently or alongside other counter drone equipment. SKYPERION can integrate with radars, cameras and jammers to provide a robust layered solution.
SKYPERION is quick to set up, easy to use, autonomous, and scalable to suit any requirement. Operating 24/7 and in all weather conditions, the solution provides an actionable understanding of signals of interest. SKYPERION also provides an operator with confidence that an airspace is clear and safe if no signal is detected.
CPNI approval allows potential customers to review SKYPERION’s capabilities. The RF detection system will feature in the Catalogue for Security Equipment (CSE) to aid decision making in the selection of an appropriate counter drone solution.
METIS Aerospace CEO Tony Burnell welcomes this accreditation. He states that ‘drones pose an increasing threat to critical sites. CPNI’s rigorous testing is vital for decision-makers to understand and compare the range of solutions available. Alongside securing high-profile contracts, which include Gatwick Airport, the Royal Air Force and militaries overseas, CPNI approval provides further assurance to our customers that SKYPERION is an effective solution against unauthorised drones’.
