Northrop Grumman tests new mobile counter UAS concept

Northrop Grumman Defense Systems is conducting validation testing of its latest counter Unmanned Aerial System (UAS), the Mobile Acquisition and Cueing Effector (M-ACE) concept. The unit features an extended SDS-12 stabilised aluminium tower mounted on a dedicated Ford F250 platform. The company expects to field a prototype demonstrator capability in the near term. According to a report by Jane’s,  the company intends to conduct live-fire counter UAS prove out testing with the M230 Bushmaster/LW30 PROX round remotely cued from an M-ACE platform as soon as testing is permitted within the framework of current COVID-19 safety restrictions.
