Thailand’s navy purchases Israeli counter-drone system Print E-mail

Thailand’s navy has recently acquired a counter-drone system from Israel-based Skylock Systems; although financial details of the agreement were not disclosed, according to Calcalist the deal could be valued at US$4.29 million.

The Thai Navy will receive the counter-drone system within the next eight months, dictates the agreement.

Skylock, founded in 2018 by the Avnon Group and based in central Israeli town of Petah Tikva, enables security teams to locate and capture unauthorised drones once one has been detected.

The specific system acquired by the Thai navy is designed to protect naval ports and has an operating range of 10 kilometres.

This is not the first time Thailand has turned to Israel for counter-drone systems; in January 2018, Calcalist reported that a short-range drone defence system developed by Israeli arms manufacturer IMI Systems Ltd. (Israeli Military Industries) was used for the first time by the Thai Air Force.
