COPENHAGEN • WARSZAWA

Terrorist and criminal drone attacks on humans and public/corporate facilities are increasing rapidly. Therefore, ZONITH A/S and MyDefence ApS, are entering into a partnership, to offer a full solution, whereby humans and public/corporate facilities are prewarned about drone attacks.

Many places are at risk of drone attacks, carried out by entities with criminal intentions. Prisons are at risks of drones delivering drugs, weapons or mobile phones. Larger events, where many people are gathered, are at risk of being attacked by drones. Power plants, electricity and gas distribution networks are at risk of being attacked by drones. The list of threats attributed to drone attacks is long and continues to grow longer, the more sophisticated drones become.

The cooperation between ZONITH and MyDefence is focused on the detection and quick reaction to drone attacks. MyDefence delivers highly effective drone detection systems. Once a drone is detected, the alarm handling solution from ZONITH will ensure that staff on the ground are instantly notified about the attack and alerted as to where it is coming from. With this combined solution, it is possible to react instantly to any drone attack and resolve the situation effectively.

Regarding the cooperation, CEO of MyDefence Christian Steinø, says “With ZONITH we have found a partner who has built a large global distribution channel. Their channel partners are all involved in the delivery of security solutions to both public and private companies, prisons, airports and sports arenas.  The alarm handling and secure communication portfolio of products from ZONITH complements our portfolio. ZONITH have a great reputation in the market and we are very much looking forward to working with them.”

CEO of ZONITH Kristian Hartvig Stiesmark reflects upon the cooperation, “Our company is specialized in providing instant alarm handling and staff protection solutions. For years we have delivered our security solutions into prisons, public safety institutions and other customers faced with complex security risks. Our customers have been asking us to provide drone detection as part of our installations and with MyDefence we have found a partner who can deliver the technology to detect drones.”

Smart Tickets – The easy way to handle tasks and alarms on a MOTOTRBO radio

Usability on a radio has never been particular good. Compared to modern devices like Smartphones, Tablets and BlackBerry’s the usability of a radio falls behind.

ZONITH is now taking usability to the next level by introducing the Smart Tickets for MOTOTRBO radios. Smart Tickets is an app loaded into the Generic Option Board (GOB) of a MOTOTRBO radio. With the Smart Ticket app the radio users do no longer need to handle alarms and tasks in blindness.

Zonith recently tested and approved the Kenwood NX5000 & Tait TP9300 with our Bluetooth Based Indoor Positioning System (IPS).

This gives these radios the ability to be tracked via both Bluetooth and GPS in and around a facility in real time, without the need for a Generic Option Board (GOB). Management are given an overview of staff locations if an emergency occurs requiring mass evacuations, or a member of staff raises a personal panic alarm and requires attention.

For more information on Zonith’s IPS, click here!

 

We are pleased to announce the recent release of the ZONITH Combined GPS & Indoor Positioning System (GIPS). Staff members can now be tracked throughout a facility both indoors using Bluetooth, and outdoors using GPS, on the one radio device. The transition between technologies is seamless and automatic. When an alarm is raised, the position of the person in trouble (and staff around them) can be displayed on one screen for a quick response. This product pushes the boundaries of security technology, offering an all-in-one tracking solution
