SRC's Silent Archer C-UAS technology is comprised of TRL 8/9 radar and electronic warfare (EW) systems, camera and a 3-D user display to defeat hostile drones, whether a lone target or a UAS swarm. Combined, these systems provide spatial, frequency and optical surveillance capabilities to detect, track, classify and identify the airborne threat. Once the UAS threat is identified, various low-cost, low-risk electronic methods are utilized to disrupt the UAS, such as jamming the communications links between the operator and the aircraft.
The Silent Archer technologies work together to provide a complete, end-to-end counter-UAS solution for applications such as:
• Force protection in contested environments
• Critical infrastructure protection
• Security for VIPs and high profile events
• Urban environment surveillance
SRC has successfully demonstrated the ability for Silent Archer anti-drone technology to detect, track, identify and defeat UAS at U.S. government-sponsored counter-UAS test events like JIAMDO’s Black Dart, the Army Warfighting Assessment (AWA), Network Integration Evaluation (NIE), and Maneuvers and Fires Integrated Exercise (MFIX).
An open architecture and sensor-agnostic design of Silent Archer technologies support a variety of optional systems and functionality, such as:
• Direction finding unit (Provides line-of-bearing information to the UAS and their operators)
• Wireless networking (For communicating between systems and command and control (C2) centres)
