MESMER is a low power, non-kinetic drone mitigation solution, enabling an effective and safe method of protecting personnel and infrastructure from dangerous drones.
The counter-drone product performed at the highest levels during sales demonstrations and operational tests to a wide variety of potential customers.
The emergence of small, lightweight drones or unmanned aerial systems (UAS) offers many applications and benefits.
However, terrorists are increasingly using drones, including ISIS formally announcing a new “Unmanned Aircraft of the Mujahideen” unit, a fleet of modified drones equipped with bombs.
With increased worldwide drone activity that presents evolving security challenges, there is a growing interest in Department 13’s platform.
MESMER provides automated detection and mitigation strategies, allowing the user to stop, redirect, land, or take total control of a target drone.
Department 13’s focus is to drive sales, both directly and through partner channels, and to establish the product as the global market leader in counter-drone technology.
The sales channel comprises strategic partners Booz Allen Hamilton in the U.S., EPE in Australasia, Phoenix Group in Latin America and ISM in the UK and Europe.
The anti-drone market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of circa 24% between 2017 and 2022, to reach US$1.14 billion by 2022.
