MyDefence teaming up with expert security company ZONITH

News   •   Sep 06, 2017 17:02 CEST

Terrorist and criminal drone attacks on humans and public/corporate facilities are increasing rapidly. Therefore, ZONITH A/S and MyDefence ApS, are entering into a partnership, to offer a full solution, whereby humans and public/corporate facilities are prewarned about drone attacks.

Many places are at risk of drone attacks, carried out by entities with criminal intentions. Prisons are at risks of drones delivering drugs, weapons or mobile phones. Larger events, where many people are gathered, are at risk of being attacked by drones. Power plants, electricity and gas distribution networks are at risk of being attacked by drones. The list of threats attributed to drone attacks is long and continues to grow longer, the more sophisticated drones become.

The cooperation between ZONITH and MyDefence is focused on the detection and quick reaction to drone attacks. MyDefence delivers highly effective drone detection systems. Once a drone is detected, the alarm handling solution from ZONITH will ensure that staff on the ground are instantly notified about the attack and alerted as to where it is coming from. With this combined solution, it is possible to react instantly to any drone attack and resolve the situation effectively.

Regarding the cooperation, CEO of MyDefence Christian Steinø, says “With ZONITH we have found a partner who has built a large global distribution channel. Their channel partners are all involved in the delivery of security solutions to both public and private companies, prisons, airports and sports arenas. The alarm handling and secure communication portfolio of products from ZONITH complements our portfolio. ZONITH have a great reputation in the market and we are very much looking forward to working with them.”

CEO of ZONITH Kristian Hartvig Stiesmark reflects upon the cooperation, “Our company is specialized in providing instant alarm handling and staff protection solutions. For years we have delivered our security solutions into prisons, public safety institutions and other customers faced with complex security risks. Our customers have been asking us to provide drone detection as part of our installations and with MyDefence we have found a partner who can deliver the technology to detect drones.”

Lockheed Martin and MyDefence Communication Sign Agreement to Pair Unmanned System with KNOX Counter-UAS System

Press Releases   •   Aug 23, 2017 17:00 CEST

COPENHAGEN, Aug. 22, 2017 – Lockheed Martin’s Indago quadrotor will be paired with the MyDefence Communication KNOX counter-unmanned aerial system (C-UAS) system under a new development agreement between the companies.

"KNOX technology will enable Indago users to identify unmanned aerial system pilots who are operating their systems illegally," said MyDefence Communication CEO Christian Steinø

Collaborative development will take place at MyDefence in Denmark. The project is part of an industrial cooperation program in Denmark with Sikorsky, a Lockheed Martin company. 

Project goals include pairing the Indago with the KNOX system to achieve rapid response aerial surveillance capabilities. This unique solution will allow users to quickly and effectively detect adversaries and record evidence that could be used for prosecution.

"MyDefence Communication is an R&D company. One of our research areas cover combating the malicious use of drones in the public domain. Over the past year, we have noticed a growing need among our customers not only to detect and neutralize a drone, but also to find and prosecute the drone pilot. We look forward to this cooperation and are very pleased that a large company like Lockheed Martin can see opportunities in working with a smaller Danish company," said Steinø.

TheKNOX system is an anti-drone alarm and protection capability paired with Indago to gather real-time information about a suspect drone and its pilot. As designed, the KNOX alarm sounds when an unknown drone is detected in the area of interest. A target search area will then be provided to the Indago ground station and the Indago can then be deployed to locate the unknown drone operator, and provide real-time imagery of a potential subject which can be provided to law enforcement for apprehension. Additionally, KNOX is able to detect and identify drones and protect the area by disturbing the device communication at the precise wireless frequency of the drone without interfering with other mobile signals.

The pairing of the KNOX and Indago systems would be especially useful to secure areas such as critical infrastructure, prisons and private property.

"Bringing this capability to Indago will add another tool for the system’s users who rely on the Indago for high-quality imaging, easy, all-weather operation and long endurance,” said Richard Bonnett, general manager, Lockheed Martin Procerus Technologies. “Indago users worldwide could benefit from this enhancement".

MyDefence Communication opens office in United States

Press Releases   •   May 08, 2017 11:20 CEST

Our solutions are highly sought after. It’s taken us 5 years to make the Wingman Counter Drone compact enough to be used in operations by Special Forces, police and others, without it missing any of its detection capabilities. The voyage we have taken with the soldiers we are now aiding in combat has been the best in my life – knowing what we do, that we will protect them, makes all the difference.” Christian Steinø, CEO at MyDefence Communication, former F-16 fighter pilot in the Royal Danish Air Force.

The opening of the office extends the vision of MyDefence: “we protect those who protects us” and welcomes Luke Layman as CEO of MyDefence North America.

Luke is formerly the president of Vector Solutions, a US based Aerospace and Defence company. As an A-10 pilot in the United States Air Force, he served as Operations Manager and Supervisor while stationed in multiple locations both domestically and abroad. His distinct credentials and personality will be a remarkable addition to MyDefence.

Due to rapidly increasing demand, the decision to open an office in USA was made in January 2017 with the office opening its doors the 1st of May 2017. MyDefence has drawn on the experiences from similar Aerospace and Defence companies setting up business in the US, in order to expedite the establishment and enter the market with a pace fitting culture of the corporation. 

MyDefence is an entrepreneurial enterprise rooted in the experience of former military officers. We leverage a deep understanding of military operations and robust insight into advanced radio technologies, with expertise of highly skilled RF engineers.

We nourish a disruptive technology culture within our corporation, with a strong desire to develop revolutionary, solid and superior technology, which protects infantry soldiers, from Improvised Explosive Devises (IED) or drones carrying explosives. By listening to our customers, and combining lessons learned with our technology and research, we have made revolutionizing steps towards robust wireless signaling in mission critical environments. The knowledge gained and shared, makes our products truly cutting edge.

At MyDefence we realize the terms “Interoperability” and “Mission Critical” are lifesavers. Around these notions, we work our projects and products in order to accommodate the military needs for flexibility and operability.

Raleigh, North Carolina will serve as the new home of MyDefence North America. High demand for operational counter drone products and services made the opening possible. Conception to inception occurred in just under 3 months.
