Operational Solutions has a drone detect, track, identify and defeat capability. Technical details of the system are, obviously, confidential however it is a multi-layered highly effective system that uses an easy to understand interface requiring minimal training and maintenance. We have been working with a number of Government agencies and UK / European airports for over 2 years now. It is our assessment that Gatwick simply got unlucky in being the first airport targeted – of course, the risk assessment has now changed and we are proactively continuing to offer support where we can.
OSL’s Chief Operating Officer, Lee Mansell, has been discussing the events on Sky News. Below is a link to a transcript of that interview.
