Eurosatory: US trials for C-UAV system

7th June 2016 - 12:00 GMT | by Georgina Smith in London


The Anti-UAV Defence System (AUDS) will be evaluated by the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) as part of its Pathfinder initiative to detect and identify UAS flying too close to US airports.

AUDS successfully completed US government-sponsored counter-UAV trials at the end of 2015, which led to its selection by the FAA for Pathfinder, according to Blighter Surveillance Systems in a 31 May statement.
