Rafael has announced the U.S. Department of Defense’s (DoD) Joint Counter-small Unmanned Aircraft Systems Office (JCO) has named and recommended for C-sUAS As A Service (CaaS) the DRONE DOME system, provided via Rafael Systems Global Sustainment (RSGS), earlier this month. This is following a series of demonstrations of the system completed at Yuma Proving Ground, Arizona, in April of this year.
According to the company:
“DRONE DOME successfully demonstrated its C-UAS capabilities, which included accurate detection, identification and soft-kill capabilities against a variety of drone targets and is now eligible and has been recommended to compete for future CaaS contract opportunities. Throughout the demonstration, DRONE DOME utilized an RPS-42 radar, an EO/IR system, and an RF detection & mitigation system. Several of these components are already integrated into US systems and are globally deployed. Additionally, DRONE DOME has a configurable architecture that can be adapted for different operational demands and to confront a variety of threats.
