Counter-UAS

When you need to defend against drones, one size does not fit all.

A wide range of unmanned aircraft systems have come of age, from cheap but capable quadcopters to sophisticated combat drones. This has left civilian air traffic controllers, public safety officials, front-line military commanders and others looking for new and specialized technologies to detect, track and respond to the threat.

The answer to rogue drones can range from simply knowing they're there to carrying out a complex counter-attack with lasers, radio waves, small drones and missiles. Our portfolio of sensors and effectors, networked into a command-and-control system, covers the complete counter-UAS mission.

Watch our counter-UAS tech defend against agile, unmanned threats and larger drone swarms.
