Citadel Defense has received a multi-million-dollar government contract for Titan, an AI-powered, radiofrequency (RF) based counter drone system. The customer has not been identified.
According to a press statement: “Citadel’s technology was selected following a competitive evaluation of two dozen competitive counter small unmanned aircraft systems (C-sUAS). Titan proved highly effective in complex urban environments and was preferred by operators as it exhibited technical superiority across many unpredictable threat scenarios including drone swarms.”
“As the only automated RF sensor solution in the market that uses AI and machine learning to detect, identify, track, and safely defeat uncooperative drones, Titan is a force multiplier for US and allied forces,” explains Christopher Williams, CEO of Citadel Defense.
The company says Titan protects troops and high value assets against unwanted drone activity and swarms when large and expensive multi-sensor systems cannot be deployed. “At locations where integrated systems are installed, Titan serves as the RF defense layer, bringing an industry-leading low false alarm rate, targeted countermeasures, and broadest level of threat coverage to highly integrated counter drone solutions. The number of commercial drone platforms that pose a threat continue to proliferate and evade legacy C-sUAS systems. Adversaries have become increasingly sophisticated with the technologies used, creating significant challenges for C-sUAS systems that rely on slow-to-update UAS threat-libraries and countermeasures.”
