Black Sage

UASX counter drone system
Type of C-UAS
Integrated systems

Detector, ECM.

Black Sage’s UASX system uses automatic target classification, video tracking and threat prioritization to automate the CUAS detect-identify-defeat process. UASX fits into three ruggedized plastic cases and is lightweight enough to travel as checked luggage. When rapid deployment is necessary, the complete system is unpacked and set up in less than 30 minutes. UASX stations are modular and enable scaled coverage across large geographic areas using existing point-to-point radios, cat5/6 or fiber networks. Radars, cameras and effectors are registered with a central hardware component and positioned according to unique requirements of the site. Multiple range capabilities are available to accommodate the needs of small sites and large campuses. Vamtac and Humvee mounted counter-UAS systems enable extreme long range protection against UAS threats. Cockpit integrated command and control and rapidly deployable carbon-fiber mast and sensor payload make for a timely and rugged solution for forward operating bases and remote VVIP applications.

In July 2018 Black Sage announced it was providing stadiums and venues a relatively low-cost solution for specific high-risk events. According to the company, the Black Sage counter drone system provides: early detection to allow law enforcement to take action even before the drone is airborne, AI classification to reduce false alarms, operator location to assist law enforcement in apprehension, and forensic data to ensure prosecution is all provided by the service.”

In March 2019 Echodyne reported that its security radar, EchoGuard, has been selected by Black Sage Technologies, Inc. as the preferred radar sensor for mid-range C-UAS security solutions.


In June 2019 Raytheon and Black Sage announced they are partnering through a formal teaming arrangement to provide an integrated drone detection and mitigation system for civil authorities, critical infrastructure and military organizations around the world.
