The contract, which is worth around $2.2 million, was awarded through Blighter in Spain CIAC.

The AUDS system was designed and manufactured by a group of UK-based companies, including Blighter Surveillance Systems, Chess Dynamics and Enterprise Control Systems, in 2015.

The AUDS system can detect, track, identify and defeat a UAV within 15 seconds at a range of up to 10 km. The system uses the electronic scanning micro-Doppler radar to detect a UAV, precision infrared and daylight cameras and advanced video tracking software to track it, and a non-kinetic radio frequency inhibitor to defeat the UAV.
