Israel Innovation Authority awards Airobotics USD540,000 grant for counter drone development

Israel Innovation Authority has awarded Ondas Holdings a grant worth NIS 2.1 million (approximately USD540,000) to support further development of its Iron Drone Raider counter-uncrewed aircraft system (UAS) owned by its wholly-owned subsidiary Airobotics.

Earlier this year, Airobotics acquired the assets of Iron Drone, an Israel-based company specializing in the development of autonomous counter-drone systems. The Iron Drone Raider uses AI technologies to identify and intercept hostile drones and can be integrated into a variety of drone detection systems. The Raider physically intercepts small, hostile drones using an incredibly swift autonomous drone equipped with interception mechanisms and combined with a highly automated docking station capable of simultaneously addressing several hostile drone targets. The grant funds a development program that aims to enhance the system’s capabilities for intercepting hostile drones in civil environments while minimizing collateral damage caused by GPS jamming and falling objects.
