RF Cyber Counter-drone takeover technology combines with situational awareness sensor engineering to deliver greater C-UAS interoperability, calibration and control
Ra’anana, Israel, McLean, VA and West Conshohocken, PA, USA, August 18, 2022 – D-Fend Solutions, leader in radio frequency (RF), cyber-based, counter-drone takeover technology and Syzygy Integration, a next-generation situational awareness technology engineering firm have integrated D-Fend’s EnforceAir™ C-UAS with Syzygy’s SNAP (Sensor Network Access Point).
The integration will strengthen support for the Team Awareness Kit / Tactical Assault Kit (TAK) across the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Department of Defense (DOD), Department of Justice (DOJ) and first responders in contending with rogue drone activity at sensitive and critical sites and events. TAK is a cost-effective, off-the-shelf government sponsored solution developed by the Department of Defense that enables tactical data generation, visualization, and sharing to facilitate communications across multiple users and achieve shared tactical situational awareness. This integration also enables EnforceAir to immediately work with camera systems, radars, and other sensor technologies for fusion and filtering via all the capabilities in SNAP. SNAP also enables all the sensor data to work across enterprise networks via secure connections, mobile ad-hoc networking (MANET), goTenna and Iridium simultaneously.
“We are gratified to collaborate with Syzygy Integration,” said Zohar Halachmi, Chairman and CEO of D-Fend Solutions. “The integration of EnforceAir’s unique and proven cyber takeover counter-drone capabilities with SNAP will lead to greater optimization of cross-functional tactical data flow and communications for various C-UAS scenarios, sectors, and use cases, delivering more robust airspace safety and security in the context of heightened threat levels from hostile and unsafe UAS activity.”
“This integration is timed perfectly given the clearly increased threat from unauthorized UAS activity, and the requisite need for enhanced situational awareness and defensive coordination,” said Wesley Mitchell, President of Syzygy Integration. “Through this strong collaboration, we are taking more impactful steps towards protecting airspace with greater alignment and coordination across multiple operator users and stakeholders.”
“We are proud to deliver enterprise situational awareness to the extreme tactical edge through our goTenna mobile mesh network solution in collaboration with D-Fend Solutions and Syzygy Integration,” said goTenna’s Chief Executive Officer, Ari Schuler.
