MARSS showcases NiDAR in US
MARSS Group on 4 November announced it has successfully demonstrated new capabilities of its NiDAR CUAS AI Command and Control system to disable UAS threats.
The UK-based company worked with Northrop Grumman and MSI Defence Systems in a week-long exercise at a private testing facility in Arizona, US.
Led by MARSS, the three companies showcased a new generation of layered countermeasures that provide a 360-degree arc of protection against airborne threats at ranges from 250m to more than 15km.
The MARSS NiDAR CUAS includes various proven electronic countermeasures; however, emerging UAS threats may be able to evade or defeat traditional jamming technologies.
The company stated: ‘In these cases, the NiDAR CUAS system for the first time enables end users to integrate layers of defensive countermeasures that are designed to permanently disable single or defeat asymmetric UAS threats; protecting assets and saving lives at significant ranges, with a high probability of intercept.’
MARSS added that NiDAR is already being commissioned at several key installations, with undisclosed contracts exceeding $180 million.
