US drone mitigation company Citadel Defense has integrated counter-unmanned aircraft systems (CUAS) training into their latest software update – now available to over 300 fielded systems, says a company press release. Citadel’s Titan software provides guidance and increased situational awareness, helping operators make more informed decisions. Titan helps reduce an operator’s cognitive load autonomously, transparently, and safely, freeing them to focus on their mission with less distraction. The developments are aimed at meeting changing operational needs of the Pentagon.
According to the company, Citadel’s latest enhancements to traditional models for short range CUAS defence deliver autonomous protection and a safe escalation of force through the application of precision electronic countermeasures. Titan provides operators with artificial intelligence, signal processing, and cyberwarfare to avoid reliance on drone-libraries or non-adaptive countermeasure methods.
Citadel developed novel training environments using the latest innovations in artificial intelligence, data augmentation and automated threat simulation. Each Titan unit learns from other deployed systems to ensure that all units have the latest threat coverage no matter where they are deployed.
Christopher Williams, CEO of Citadel Defense said: “It must take less than 5 minutes for an operator to learn how to set up and use. Then it must take under 5 minutes for that operator to train a colleague. Once both are achieved, the capability can be released.”
