Project Description

Do You Have A Netting Project We Can Help With?

Gainesville, Florida

The University of Florida approached Gorilla Netting in the Summer of 2021 with a proposal to build a customized netted drone enclosure on nearby, university-owned acreage.  

The netted drone enclosure system measures 240’L x 60′ W x 30’H (AG) and utilizes #36 1-7/8″ treated knotted nylon netting and utility-grade hardware and wire rope.   

The hardwood poles used on this project were sourced from sustainable tree farms across the country that have been specially treated for durability. These 30-foot support poles resist Florida’s heat and harsh weather.  

The Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR) financed this unique netting system to act as an “Autonomy Park” for a Center of Excellence on Assured Autonomy in Contested Environments. Gorilla Netting completed the project in September of 2021, and it was well-received by staff and faculty alike.   

The facility includes a cutting-edge 5G-enabled enclosed environment for various autonomous air and grounds robotic systems classes.  

Florida is a region with blazing heat and occasional intense storms; however, this system was built to withstand the elements and provide students and the military with a high-tech location to test drone and UAV applications for years to come.
