Chess Dynamics awarded contract
Chess Dynamics has received a sub-contract worth more than £3 million to provide electro-optical tracking and control systems to be incorporated into ten ISO containers as part of a US Department of Defense (DoD) counter-UAS solution.
The order has been secured through Liteye, the US partner of Chess Dynamics.
The system integrates the AUDS C-UAS solution within a fully-mobile container unit which provides protective and habitable space for the soldier – enabling deployment in areas other surveillance can’t reach. The system will be applied to counter UAS threats at US borders, airports and protect critical infrastructure, detecting, tracking, identifying and defeating UAS.
The system will be delivered in 2019.
