SkySafe aims to provide simpler and safer counter-drone technology for its customers. The company’s headquarters is located in San Diego, California.

Products

SkySafe provides defense against drones by employing radio frequencies that would automatically stop unauthorized drones from entering certain areas. The same mechanism would also give permission to drones that have been approved to enter airspace undisturbed. These frequencies will be transmitted from highly mobile equipment, allowing them to be attached to moving vehicles.
