Mission critical systems specialist CS Group demonstrated its BOREADES counter unmanned aerial vehicle (C-UAV) system in Brétigny (site of the UAV Cluster in Ile de France region) in early September. According to a CS Group press release, the solution integrated several sensors and different command and control (C2) systems to deliver relevant information, made possible by on-board artificial intelligence. Several scenarios were presented, prepared on the basis of CS Group’s off-the-shelf simulation system, which made it possible to test the quality of the HMI, the detection capabilities of three interconnected radars (long, medium and short range) and the relevance of data processing for three linked command & control centres.
BOREADES successfully integrated the Giraffe 1X radar from Saab for the first time to evaluate the performance of the sensor’s long-range capability with BOREADES. The Brétigny demonstration was followed by a first operational evaluation integrating the Giraffe G1X radar with the BOREADES system in very dense urban areas was carried out with promising results.
CS GROUP is committed to continuing the development of the BOREADES solution, based on the following pillars:
- Agile and incremental development using ‘bricks’, deliverable in very short cycles to meet operational needs;
- Ability to integrate any type of sensor/effector with commitments to deadlines and performance;
- Differentiation through intelligent processing of collected data, including artificial data; and
- Interoperability with command systems, other C2 Counter-UAV systems and Unmanned Traffic Management (UTM) systems.
CS GROUP has been involved in the fight against malicious UAVs for five years, and ensures an active and permanent technological watch to respond to the evolution of the UAV threat and operational needs.
