XTEND, a provider of innovative XR human telepresence technology for defence, national security, public safety, and industrial inspection markets, has announced that it participated in a national evaluation event hosted by the Spanish Ministries of Interior and Defence in Asturias Airport. The event featured 16 state-of-the-art counter-drone technology companies to showcase and deploy their products’ compatibility with existing airport technologies.
Recognising that counter-unmanned aircraft systems (c-UAS) are crucial for national security, the event sought solutions to prevent drone interference and other threats that endanger airports and flights.
XTEND’s SKYLORD HUNTER system is an aerial defence platform adopted by the U.S. DoD and other world defence agencies to support military and civilian operations. The platform’s XR capabilities fuse edge technology with cognitive skills to safely perform dangerous missions on the battlefield.
Each company had to overcome two types of tests to demonstrate why their technologies were compatible with current airport communication systems and navigation. They also had to demonstrate the effectiveness of their capacities to fight against hostile drones and guarantee their designated area’s security. XTEND had successfully intercepted a target drone on the move before allowing it to enter the aerial area of the airport.
XTEND’s SKYLORD systems allow a zero-learning-curve experience to operators with no flight experience and ensures success across almost any mission variable, both indoors and outdoors.
