The technology allows operators to control enemy drones and safely land them before disabling them — preventing unintended collateral damage. The system can disable a UAV via electronic jamming or kinetic solutions.

Featuring electronic surveillance sensors and scenario-specific radar, the Falcon Shield is designed to have the capability to be operated in a variety of environments, including ‘high-clutter’ urban areas. 

The system is controlled through an interface that automatically detects and tracks threats.

The Falcon Shield’s features include: long range or ultra-long range modular electro-optical surveillance, threat acquisition and reconnaissance system that incorporates Horizon HD thermal imaging over the secured Observer 100 video platform. 

The Vantage Framework is a Command, Control and Situational Awareness application that is based on geographical information and allows user to customize specific security solutions.
