Israeli Company Mobilicom has received a $1.2 million grant to create a solution that focuses on the development of cyber technologies using Artificial Intelligence (AI) as an add-on module for drones and unmanned platforms.
As part of this project, Mobilicom will develop an anti-hijacking and anti-spoofing system for commercial, government and enterprise drones and robotic platforms. The solution will enable autonomous cybersecurity without operator intervention, in real time.
The grant is funded by the Israeli Ministry of Defense and the Israel Innovation Authority.
“Mobilicom holds the key components that turn a drone into a ‘smart drone,’” said CEO Oren Elkayam. “We look forward to offering drone and robotics manufacturers our new technology leveraging Artificial Intelligence as an add-on module for drones and other unmanned platforms. Given the daily involvement of unmanned platforms in security and homeland security operations, it goes without saying that this technology will serve as an added value here and in other commercial applications.”
