Citadel automates C-UAS functions for frontline troops

15th July 2020 - 13:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Citadel Defense on 14 July announced the release of new AI-powered software and networking solutions for autonomous protection against 98% of COTS drones.  

By securely networking multiple units of its Titan system, Citadel claimed, a large airbase can achieve round-the-clock protection via through a single interface and the click of one button.

'We delivered intuitive hardware and software that quickly and cost effectively handles threats across all modalities of operation so that troops can focus on their missions without distraction,' said Citadel Defense CEO Christopher Williams.

Addressing US military concerns that legacy C-UAS solutions are difficult to operate and costly to sustain, Citadel worked with the USAF and government agencies to develop an optimised RF-based system that also harnesses AI, machine-learning and what the company described as 'hyper-automation'.
