The world witnessed the devastation of a drone strike on critical facilities when Houthi rebels in Yemen struck two major oil facilities run by the state-owned company Aramco in Saudi Arabia. The swarm drone attack caused large fires and both facilities were shut down, cutting Saudi Arabia’s oil production by about half – representing about five percent of global oil production.
Drone threats are a major factor in ports and harbors’ safety and security measures worldwide. These entry and exit points function as arteries for major cities and even countries, and may also house hazardous and potentially explosive chemicals and substances.
THE MISSION-CRITICAL SOLUTION
EnforceAir, D-Fend Solutions’ flagship solution, features proven and future-proof technology. It detects unauthorized or rogue drones, identifies them and then automatically takes control over the drones and lands them in a secure, designated area. This high level of control helps maintain continuity for small and large sites.
Specifically designed to protect infrastructure and critical facilities from hostile drone incursions and capable of managing multiple sites centrally, EnforceAir supplies facility security personnel with proactive notifications, providing relevant units with real-time information regarding at-risk sites. This early heads-up enables emergency personnel, whether at ports and harbors, or other critical facilities, to respond appropriately.
Many critical facilities utilize drones for deliveries, surveillance and other tasks. Unlike jamming-based solutions, or hybrid solutions featuring jamming, EnforceAir can automatically distinguish between “friend and foe” drones, so that important work tasks are not disrupted.
Our solution facilitates safety and continuity via operational flexibility. The solution is designed to be easily transferred, mounted and configured to handle a wide range of operational scenarios. EnforceAir can provide protection on the move when affixed to various vehicles, or it can be deployed at a stationary ground-level, or high-altitude position.
This type of flexibility is enabled by multiple types of sensors that protect facilities via detection, prevention and apprehension of rogue drones and their pilots.
Key components include:
Stationary omni-sensor, which offers fixed protection of facilities’ coverage areas
Tactical omni-sensor for ad hoc deployment capabilities
Vehicle omni-sensor to extend the coverage area and increase operational flexibility
