High Point Aerotechnologies demonstrates detection of swarming and ‘stealthy’ UAS

Using its Sawtooth counter-UAS system, High Point Aerotechnologies, in collaboration with the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the CUAS Center of Excellence at Oklahoma State University, has demonstrated an ability to detect swarming and ‘stealthy’ UAS, the company announced in a 14 August press release.

A technology company focused on the provision of autonomous layered defence and robotoc systems offering multi-mission capabilities, High Point Aerotechnologies is the product of acquisitions of Liteye Systems and Black Sace Technologies in late 2022 and early this year, respectively, building on the legacy of both strong C-UAS brands. The demonstration showcased Sawtooth’s ability to detect multiple simultaneous threats at a variety of ranges, altitudes and speeds, and underscored its versatility in meeting the challenges posed by UAS-based threats. Conventional C-UAS solutions often have difficulty in detecting swarms and drones with low RF emissions – sometimes called ‘dark drones’. Sawtooth provides a multi-layered capability that addresses those challenges directly.

“This event was unique in that it created the opportunity for the industry to conduct real-world demonstrations of our ability to rapidly develop and deploy critical UAS defense solutions to our federal and civilian customers,” said High Point CEO, Al White.

Since 2002, systems now in the High Point Aerotechnologies portfolio have been tested, trusted and deployed by civil and military operators in over 15 nations.
