The regional police force of the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) has announced its decision to procure ESG’s Elysion software. the company writes in a press release. Reportedly, police forces in NRW will use the counter-UAS software for protection against drones. The decision to procure the software was preceded by intensive testing on behalf of the responsible State Office for Central Police Services. According to the Drone Defence Operational Advisory Centre at the NRW Central Police Office, Elysion has proven its performance during a comprehensive test phase and was also able to demonstrate its operational readiness at last year’s G7 summit in Elmau, Germany, ESG emphasises. Police authorities of German federal- and state agencies, the German armed forces as well as international customers are among the Elysion users. Elysion is a further development of the Guardion software core consisting of processing core intelligence and networked, map-based situation display.
