Navy SEALs ink deal for anti-drone tech through DIUx acquisition | Fedscoop

The Navy SEALs will soon have their six covered when it comes to drones.

The Naval Special Warfare Command, working with the Defense Innovation Unit-Experimental, awarded a $1.5 million to San Diego-based startup SkySafe to use its counter-unmanned aerial systems technology in battle to stop weaponized drones.

“It’s become a big problem on the military side,” SkySafe CEO Grant Jordan told FedScoop. “ISIS and other terrorist groups have started really weaponizing drones and bringing them into battles in a way that really hasn’t happened before.”

SkySafe uses radio frequency technology for what Jordan called “air space enforcement.”
