Citadel Defense wins drone and pilot location contracts
On September 28, San Diego, CA-based Citadel Defense announced that it has been awarded three new counter unmanned aircraft systems (CUAS) contracts from the U.S. Government for their newest product, Titan Drone Finder (Titan DF). Developed alongside servicemen and servicewomen, the new Titan DF solution allows operators to locate the drone, track the flight path, and autonomously neutralize threats that cross a user-defined alert zone.
Christopher Williams, CEO of Citadel Defense said, “We take every measure to compress the time and space required for operators to make a decision and take action against a threat in their airspace.”
Citadel’s rapidly growing family of Titan CUAS systems has industry-transforming automation that creates a distinct operational advantage for servicemen and servicewomen on the front lines. When defending against swarms and difficult-to-detect threats, AI-powered combat systems like Titan allow operators to identify and terminate enemy UAS threats with unmatched speed, accuracy, and reliability.
“Machines can perceive, decide, and act more quickly and accurately than humans in complex environments. Citadel solutions autonomously clear the airspace of UAS threats, keeping servicemen and servicewomen available for other important tasks in high-risk and resource-constrained environments,” explained Williams.
Results from recent government-sponsored CUAS evaluations accelerated the contract awards. Matt England, Chief Growth Officer at Citadel said, “In deployment overseas and in the U.S., users of Titan continue to unilaterally confirm the system outperforms competing Radio Frequency CUAS capabilities at Fixed, Mobile, and in Dismounted operations – all at a lower cost that enables scaling of Force Protection where it is needed.”
The company has expanded their Application Programming Interface (API), making drone and pilot location data accessible for layered defense systems and multiple command and control systems deployed across the military and government.
