Department 13 conducted a series of sales demonstrations and operational tests in Australia of its recently launched flagship counter-drone product, MESMER Version 1.0 (“MESMER”). MESMER is a unique patented, low power, non-jamming, non-line of sight, non-kinetic drone mitigation solution, enabling an effective and safe method of protecting personnel and infrastructure from dangerous drones.

Jonathan Hunter, CEO of Department 13, said, “Mesmer performed at the highest levels during the sales demonstrations and operational tests to a wide variety of potential customers. D13 working with our Australian Distributor, EPE, demonstrated a capability of a flexible, adaptive counter drone solution that will continue to grow to meet the drone threats of today and those of tomorrow.”

He continued to say, “With increased worldwide drone activity that presents evolving security challenges, there is a growing interest in our platform. We look forward to fielding MESMER’s capabilities to organizations entrusted with protecting their constituents from potentially dangerous situations.”
