A drone assault on the world’s largest oil-export terminal in Saudi Arabi recently occurred, causing a fire and a brief spike in oil prices. In other reports, a missile was also launched but was intercepted. The incident marks a serious escalation in the country's rebel attacks from the air.

How Department 13's advanced technology could assist in the commercial industry;
Department 13’s C-UAS solution MESMER, provides the capability for these organisations to detect and protect their critical people and assets from airborne threats such as drones.
MESMER intelligently listens and identifies drones/drone swarms flying within the airspace enabling users to coordinate incident response processes and forces.
MESMER provides the user with the ability to neutralise the drone(s) threat through non-jamming / non-kinetic and safe ‘soft kill’ control mitigations.
MESMER can be easily deployed to fixed Critical Infrastructure sites or in portable deployments to enable increased mobility.
MESMER is also easily integrated into existing C2 systems and accompanying drone sensor/mitigation platforms to provide more enhanced capabilities.
