Leonardo DRS continues C-UAS development for US Army

21st July 2020 - 14:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The US Army has awarded Leonardo DRS Sustainment Systems another contract to develop, produce, deploy and support a mobile system that protects troops from UAV attacks.

Under the latest $189.83 million contract, work on the Mobile-Low, Slow, Small Unmanned Aircraft System Integrated Defeat System is to be completed by the end of July 2025, the DoD announced on 20 July.

As lead systems integrator in the Mobile Low, Slow Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Integrated Defense System Increment 1 effort, Leonardo DRS previously worked with industry partners to integrate a mobile C-UAS capability on an Oshkosh Defense M-ATV.

Last month the US Army selected a Fixed Site-Low, Slow, Small Unmanned Aircraft System Integrated Defeat System as one of eight interim C-UAS systems for future investment, based on criteria such as effectiveness, usability, sustainment and integration.
