Prison Perimeters

Mesmer™ provides proactive security measures to allow prison authorities to enforce perimeters to prevent the use of drones to deliver contraband. Prisons all over the world are seeing attempts to smuggle narcotics, cell-phones, weapons and other illicit material to inmates. Mesmer™ prevents drones from penetrating perimeters, alerts the authorities and lands the drone in a secured space for subsequent recovery and investigation.

Military Security

Military forces face asymmetric threats from enemies who can use drones for reconnaissance and attack. Mesmer™ systems can be integrated with military defence systems on land or sea to allow security of our military forces to be capable and reliable. Enemy drones can be interdicted, dealt with safely and under clear control. Mesmer™ allows wide flexibility to deal with a broad range of threat scenarios.

Public Protection

At public events such as sports, concerts, malls, or anywhere where there is population density, the public are vulnerable to drones which could crash causing injury. The use of drones by irresponsible individuals can be deterred by law but Mesmer™ actively prevents drones from posing this threat, providing those responsible for public safety with an effective and capable tool.

Department 13Transforming networks and communications

Currently D13 is developing a commercial counter drone platform. Our platform uses sophisticated and novel methods to manipulate drones allowing users to automatically detect drones and stop, redirect, or safely land them.

Our solution is ideal for both commercial and defense/security organizations to deal with the emerging threat of ubiquitous autonomous systems. Our counter-drone solution offers the best of Department 13’s innovative technologies and deep experience.
