NiDAR includes kinetic C-UAS countermeasures
UK-based MARSS Group on 12 October announced it has added multiple undisclosed kinetic countermeasures and a UAV classification function to its NiDAR AI C-UAS solution.
As a result, users will be able to detect, jam ‘and if necessary, destroy life-threatening unmanned aerial vehicles’ in seconds, the company claimed.
MARSS will be demonstrating NiDAR AI with these capabilities throughout October.
With a multi-layered approach, the NiDAR system is capable of detecting tactical UAS from distances of more than 15km, MARSS claims.
The system combines radar, RF detection and EO cameras to identify threats and trigger responses.
AI integration allows the system to learn from experience, MARSS added.
NiDAR is also used in the maritime sector to detect divers, underwater vehicles and small fast-moving surface intruders. The system integrates short- and long-range surveillance with deterrents into a single intelligent domain awareness picture.
