Frontex seeks emerging C-UAS innovations to neutralise drone threats at EU borders

Frontex, the European Border and Coast Guard Agency, is holding an Industry Day dedicated to exploring innovative and emerging solutions in the context of counter-uncrewed aerial systems (C-UAS) and adversarial red teaming services to test the effectiveness and responsiveness of C-UAS solutions. 

The Industry Day will be held on 12 June 2024, on Webex. Frontex is seeking to connect with commercial operators that can offer innovative, technology-agnostic solutions to neutralise UAS effectively.

Frontex is particularly interested in innovative portable and lightweight mobile approaches to neutralise small and mid-sized drones through RF jamming, GNSS jamming, spoofing, directed energy weapons, and hybrid systems designed to be used by law enforcement staff at the EU external borders. The agency is looking for systems that ensure precise frequency control and monitoring to avoid collateral impacts. It is also interested in proposals for system integration, interoperability and compatibility with existing systems or components.

Regarding the red teaming services, Frontex is interested in the provision of adversarial testing and evaluation services for C-UAS in real-world conditions, experience in operating a diverse portfolio of threat-emulating aerial platforms, expertise in methodologies for testing the range and effectiveness of countermeasure solutions as well as in modelling, simulation, and analysis, EM spectrum monitoring, and threat vulnerabilities and risk assessment frameworks. The ability to simulate various threat scenarios with owned drones with a portfolio ranging from small to medium sized and from COTS to custom builds enhanced with countermeasures against drone neutralisation systems is also required.

The Industry Day will enable innovators to share their latest products and services with Frontex and engage in discussions with experts from the European Border and Coast Guard community which will contribute to shaping the future of security technologies in neutralising drone threats at the border.

Industry professionals are invited to express their interest in presenting their solutions and capabilities by submitting a brief overview of their proposed systems, services and capabilities relevant to the outlined areas of interest by 2 June. Submissions must discuss the approach to addressing the challenges posed by drones for illegal activities.
