Airports and surrounding areas are particularly vulnerable to intrusions of drones. Australian senator Barry O’Sullivan, former air crash investigator, said that drones in the vicinity of planes are a  “catastrophe is waiting to happen”. Without ability to detect and gain control over drones, security of airports will be compromised, and delayed flights, air traffic paralysis or in the worst cases plane crashes will become a grim reality.

benefits for airport protection segment

  • A single Ctrl+Sky unit is able to cover a radius up to 1000 meters allowing you to secure strategic airport areas
  • Ctrl+Sky allows you to distinguish drones from other objects
  • The system uses deep learning algorithms to improve its functionality and reliability 
  • Ctrl+Sky works 24/7 regardless of weather conditions

Drones pose many threats to air traffic: from the immediate threat of airplane collisions, through interference in communications with control tower, and the physical threat to the aircraft as well as workers and passengers.

Ctrl+Sky provides effective and complete protection in tracking and neutralizing drones,day or night, in all weather conditions, ensuring the safety of airports and surrounding areas.
