Shark is currently understood to encompass a network of systems providing a wide-area defensive capability, with an electro-optical system cued to a target following the initial detection by another sensor, following which it is tracked by Shark and ultimately engaged by laser effectors – initially up to 10 kW – to temporarily or permanently ‘blind’ the optronics payload of a UAV.
Milrem Robotics and Marduk Technologies have jointly launched a mobile autonomous C-UAS platform designed to offer protection against loitering munition and surveillance drones, according to a press release.
The jointly developed system features the electro-optical C-UAS platform Marduk Shark and the THeMIS unmanned ground vehicle (UGV). This mobile solution provides frontline forces with an independent ability to accurately detect, classify and target loitering munition and other flying objects. It uses advanced Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning models.
