EW Europe: Sierra Nevada validates SkyCAP C-UAS
Sierra Nevada demonstrated its SkyCAP counter-UAS (C-UAS) system earlier this month during the US military’s Black Dart C-UAS exercise at Eglin Air Force Base.
SkyCAP is a variant of the company’s dismounted Advanced EW System – Modular (AEWS-M), modified to meet US government requirements.
The system is designed to identify UAS and defeat radio frequency (RF) performance as part of lightweight dismounted, on-the-move tactical vehicle platforms, and for fixed-site infrastructure protection.
During the exercise, multiple C-UAS missions were completed, including detecting, tracking, identifying and defeating UAS threats representative of what US and coalition forces face in forward deployed locations.
According to Sierra Nevada, SkyCAP’s performance at Black Dart validated the system as a viable C-UAS solution.
