Chess Dynamics provides drone tracking systems to US Defense Department

The UK’s Chess Dynamics Ltd has been awarded a sub contract to provide electro-optical (EO) tracking and control systems to be incorporated in to ten ISO containers as part of a counter-unmanned aircraft system (C-UAS) solution to the US Department of Defense. The system integrates the C-UAS solution AUDS within a fully-mobile container unit which provides protective and habitable space for the soldier – enabling deployment in areas other surveillance can’t reach, according to the company.

“The order, worth in excess of £3 million will be delivered in 2019 and was secured through Liteye, the US partner of Chess Dynamics,” said a Chess Dynamics press release.  “The contract will see the AUDS technology, proven in US military operations in the Middle East, used in countering drone threats at US borders, airports and protecting critical infrastructure.”
