Citadel to defeat weaponised UAS
Citadel Defense has received a contract from the US Air Force to continue development of its Titan counter-UAS (C-UAS) solution to defeat weaponised UAS and swarms, the company announced on 2 May.
Titan is a mobile system that provides fixed site and on-the-move protection against the threat posed by UAS. The system can detect controller, video and WiFi links for individual UAS and swarms. Titan securely tracks and stores data in order to give users a better understanding of threats.
Matt England, VP of business development for Citadel, said: ‘Our Titan CUAS system autonomously clears the warfighter's airspace, allowing them to be unconcerned with threat drones and purely focused on the mission at hand. It's the quintessential force multiplier to protect servicemen and women while empowering their mission.’
