Toshiba Invests $15 Million in C-UAS Company Fortem Technologies

| |

Tech giant Toshiba and Fortem Technologies, Inc. have established a strategic partnership to expand the reach of both companies in counter drone tech.

Toshiba Infrastructure Systems & Solutions has invested USD15 million in airspace security and defense company Fortem Technologies to form a strategic business alliance. The two companies plan to integrate their complementary systems and expand sales around the world, says a joint press release.

The Fortem SkyDome drone detection solution is based on Fortem TrueView radars that can be installed in urban environments, and Fortem’s DroneHunter – an AI-enabled autonomous drone that can safely capture and remove rogue drones day and night.

Toshiba has already commercialised a drone detection system that can determine the incoming direction and altitude of a drone by receiving radio waves emitted by the drone in flight. Toshiba is also strengthening the drone security business by its own research and development of related products.

Fortem Technologies has formed multiple strategic partnerships in the last several years, expanding their reach globally as major infrastructure begins to look beyond trial systems to implementing airspace security and counter drone systems.
