Our clients have been approaching us for advice on the highly dynamic threat from drones, and in teaming with D13 we will be able to provide them with what we regard as the only comprehensive package on the market – IKARUS threat awareness, corporate/organizational planning and technical countermeasures. That’s going to be a unique and compelling offering that has very significant potential. Also, our team has developed comprehensive technical methodologies for undertaking threat surveys, which is an essential first step in implementing a drone defence system. This arrangement will enable D13 to leverage these techniques when Mesmer comes to market.
