drone detection and neutralization system

  • operates in all weather conditions
  • detects drones with RF communications disabled
  • operates reliably in urban areas
  • effective due to the combination of several types of sensors
  • available in stationary, portable and mobile version

Ctrl+Sky is a multi-sensor counter-drone system that is able to detect, identify and mitigate intrusive drones. It is exceptionally effective from software to hardware because it is based on proprietary, patented technology and multi-sensor approach.


Designed to permanently protect a defined area, based on a high, stable mast that is installed in the optimum location for the best possible operation of the system.
