skylord™ Griffon

ultra-fast
drone systems

A Counter-UAS system that enables any operator with zero flight experience to kinetically intercept aerial threats using a resilient ultra-fast drone system. Serving as a human extension, the system utilizes sophisticated VR and Sensor fusion technology and allows operators to perform vision-assisted, semi-automated interceptions and to control a drone team that automatically launches when detecting aerial threats.

compatible with any detection and c2 systems

Designed as a wearable, mobile, lightweight system with a single hand, natural hand gestures-based controller, SKYLORD™ GRIFFON allows the operator to conduct an interception process via expendable, disposable physical effectors that detach upon interception impact. The SKYLORD™ GRIFFON system efficiently interfaces with both Detection and Command & Control systems to seamlessly integrate into a single Detection → Interception System.

smart hard kill, modular effectors

The SKYLORD™ GRIFFON is designed to defeat Group 1/2 COTS UAS and RCMA in ranges of up to 3 miles from the launch point. It flies up to 80mph and uses a single use effector to intercept the target drone within seconds of recognition. Configured and optimized for Multi Rotor interception, it supports a modular architecture and will also be able to eliminate fixed wing elements with a dedicated effector.
