German defense company, ESG GmbH recently protected the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany against unwanted drone activities. Discovair from Squarehead was a natural partner
As part of the ESG solution for protection against unwanted drones, Discovair was used as the only acoustic detection system of the G20 summit. Offering unique detection capabilities within the near field, often cluttered and hard to cover, Discovair provided excellent performance alongside other sensors. Discovair has been thoroughly tested and known to be the premier acoustic drone detection solution on the market today.
“We use the Discovair in our mission-proven Counter-UAS solution GUARDION and received very good results during operations in protecting large-scale political events like the G20 Summit. Their portable deployabilitx and robustness while being a passive system make the arrays a key component in the reliable detection of UAS”. Christian Jaeger, ESG”
In a comment, CEO Stig Nyvold of Squarehead says: “The knowledge and complex development poured into Discovair is bearing fruit. We are very proud to be part of the solution at G20, along with our valued partner ESG. Truly a great deployment!“.
