Kongsberg Geospatial, Echodyne Corp and uAvionix have joined forces to develop a new counter-UAS (C-UAS) system called Argus, Kongsberg Geospatial announced on 26 April.

The Argus C-UAS is a portable 3D radar system that can detect small UAS flying at long ranges within a monitored airspace. It integrates the Echodyne MESA radar with uAvionix cooperative aircraft tracking capabilities, displayed via the Kongsberg Geospatial Iris situational awareness application, providing all weather coverage and accurate positioning of airborne targets.

The system has been developed for organisations that need to monitor the position of UAS flying in their local airspace, such as airports, prisons, police forces protecting public events and emergency rescue organisations who need to keep the airspace clear surrounding disaster scenes and wildfires.
