Boreades meets a requirement from the SGDSN in the framework of the project funded by the ANR (French National Research Agency):
• Detecting drones, identifying and tracking drones
• Neutralizing and recovering drones by jamming and spoofing the remote control and navigation systems
• Locating remote pilots
The system can jam and decoy the drone’s navigation system, making it possible to take control, to select the recovery point, and above all to estimate the location of the remote pilot. It is a high-performance scalable multi-sensor and multi-effector system, mainly based on civilian technologies with a very low Total Cost of Ownership. The hardened real-time supervision system is based on an unique command & control system and a crisis management module developed by CS Group.
In April 2022 the Thales/CS consortium was reported to have won the French Defence Ministry PARADE national C-UAS contract.
