Partnership to Launch Cloud Based Counter-Drone Technology in Canada

SkySafe and Robotics Centre will offer the SkySafe Cloud to Canadian customers for detection, tracking and analyzing of drones without the need for expensive hardware By Phoebe Grinter / 09 Nov 2022

SkySafe, an airspace security and management technology company, has partnered with Robotics Centre, an Ottawa-based company, to bring SkySafe’s Cloud-based counter-drone technology to Canada.

SkySafe Cloud offers customers a way to detect, track, and analyze the drones in their airspace, without having to buy and maintain hardware which could be expensive. According to SkySafe it is the only company in the world to build, own, and operate city-wide sensor networks, offering airspace awareness via a subscription to their Cloud based application.

SkySafe has been testing and deploying counter drone capabilities to military and public safety customers, both domestic and abroad, since 2015. The company offers comprehensive defense against the threat of drones by applying advanced Radio Frequency (RF) technology, reverse engineering, and deep threat analysis.

“As more and more drones enter the airspace, there are more incidents occurring from the work of careless or criminal drone operators,” said Grant Jordan, SkySafe CEO. “Drones are dropping contraband into prisons, smuggling drugs across borders, and disrupting open-air events, just to name a few examples. We’re excited to bring airspace awareness to Canada, so unauthorized or dangerous drones can be identified, and threats can be mitigated.”

Robotics Centre was established in 2009 and is an Ottawa-based company with offices in Sapporo, Japan, and Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. They work with Government, SAR, and Industrial clients to create integrated unmanned systems solutions to address a wide range of challenges. 

Charles Barlow, Co-Founder and CEO at Robotics Centre said, “SkySafe is a great partner for Robotics Centre. It’s been exciting to see the technology go live in Ottawa, and we’ll be focusing on expanding its reach throughout Canada.”

“We’re really pleased to be partnering with Robotics Centre on the Cloud product expansion,” added Jordan. “They’ve been a great partner for many years and our expansion of the Cloud product in Canada is the perfect next step.”
