Department 13 to put industry-leading drone and counter-drone systems on global stage during AUVSI’s virtual gathering, Xponential 2021

  • The Association of Unmanned Vehicle Systems International event to showcase Department 13’s cutting-edge drone and counter-drone systems to global industry leaders.
  • Department 13 will demonstrate the latest technology advancements in MESMER, Nightingale, Atlas and DIAL drone management systems and its customisable applications.

The world’s most respected leaders in the advanced drone technology industry will get a front row seat next week at AUSVI Xponential 2021 to see how Department 13 is changing the future of unmanned systems.

The virtual event hosted by the Association of Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) from Tues 4 May to Thurs 6 May 2021, will see a global gathering of end users, technologists and policymakers who will offer fresh insights and problematic scenarios and solutions across the full spectrum of unmanned innovation, including Department 13’s industry-leading MESMER, Nightingale, Atlas and DIAL systems.

Department 13 chief executive Lee Croft said Xponential 2021 is an incredible opportunity to engage with key industry players from a range of sectors including energy, transportation, construction and defence.

“Department 13 has a proven track record for demonstrating technology superiority in our drone, counter-drone and surveillance systems for military and commercial applications around the world,” Mr Croft said.

“Xponential will allow us to show some of the best minds in the unmanned systems space just how far our amazing team has pushed the artificial intelligence capabilities of our cutting-edge MESMER, Nightingale, Atlas and DIAL systems.

“We’re also delighted to be taking part because it’s an opportunity for the industry to come together as a whole to demonstrate how essential these applications have become in our rapidly-changing world and how systems such as ours are being seamlessly integrated into commercial operations to provide a level of security, situational awareness and peace of mind that’s second to none.”

Department 13’s patented MESMER system can detect unauthorised drone activities within a secured perimeter, identify the invader and apply appropriate strategies to inhibit the threat and issue real-time alerts to systems or staff. Its superior protocol technology can also take control of a target drone or controller.

The company’s DIAL sensors add another level of protection by listening for the radio frequency signature of drones that enter an area of commercial operation to detect threats and send alerts. The information collected is sent to Atlas, our cloud-based drone management and monitoring software and processed accordingly to provide instant insights and awareness.

The Nightingale Blackbird is a fully autonomous drone that can operate in rain, snow and dust storms to detect drone threats and respond automatically – and seamlessly integrates with Department 13’s other products to offer a complete turn-key sUAS and counter-drone system and solution.

Department 13 was last year recognised as one of the most reputable and reliable providers of advanced drone technology systems to global markets when it joined the international AUVSI network, the world’s largest non-profit organisation dedicated to the integrity and development of unmanned systems, robotics and autonomy.
