NSO Group, a leading technology developer that licenses software solutions to governments and law enforcement agencies to investigate and prevent terror acts, fight crime and increase public safety, has launched Eclipse, an innovative drone defense system.
Eclipse is the premier cyber counter-drone platform designed to automatically detect, take over and safely land unauthorized commercial drones in a designated zone. Eclipse deploys an autonomous end-to-end cyber solution to detect activity within a designated perimeter, identify the presence of drones, take over control of drones which present a threat, and land them safely.
An NSO spokesperson said:
“NSO Group is committed in everything it does to saving lives and creating a better, safer world. We are proud to launch Eclipse, the first of our new suite of products, NSO Shield, aimed at countering emerging threats to public safety.
“The increasing availability of affordable drones, which can be fitted with advanced offensive capabilities, has the potential to create life-threatening situations. Eclipse helps counter rogue drones before they become a threat.”
The system offers a threat mitigation capability for dense urban environments, stadiums, critical infrastructure, airports, landmarks, and private enterprises, with smooth integration connecting to existing infrastructure. Eclipse operates automatically according to pre-defined parameters, removing the requirement for real-time decision making. Furthermore, Eclipse is designed not to jam existing communications platforms, with no impact on wireless communications and GPS signals. It is the only drone defense system that is FCC, CE and CB compliant.
