SkyFence’s most prominent deployment is in Guernsey Prison where Skyfence has been deployed to produce an active ‘no fly zone’ over the prison estate. Inside the prison, a drone detection device is used to automatically activate SkyFence when a drone is near. While the system is active, the drone is unable to fly in the prison’s airspace.
SkyFence is used alongside legislation which makes it illegal to fly above or near the prison. The States of Guernsey have also amended legislation to allow for signal interference of the drone.
“SkyFence has undergone full maintenance and testing procedures and passed in all areas.”
“The system was subject to local independent penetration testing and in addition the prison has also undertaken independent testing of the system without the contractor on site.”
“After extensive drone flights covering all fence areas at various distances, no drone was able to cross the fence, and the system operated as expected on each occasion.”
