US Army Joint Counter-UAS Office (JCO) has selected Fortem Technologies’ DroneHunter as the interim command and control standard for countering small unmanned drones for the Forward Area Air Defense Command and Control system, or FAAD C2. DroneHunter is a kinetic, non-lethal interceptor designed to stop dangerous drones, including RF-silent drones, at a safe distance before they harm people or cause damage to property.
Built on open architecture, FAAD C2 is designed for easy integration with multiple sensors, effectors and warning systems to launch rapid, real-time defense against short range and manoeuvring threats. The system collects, processes, and disseminates real-time target tracking and cuing information to all short-range air defense weapons and provides command and control (C2) for the Counter-Rocket, Artillery, Mortar (C-RAM) System-of-Systems (SoS).
“The DroneHunter is an autonomous, radar-guided drone for safe, kinetic, effective mitigation of small drones and fixed wings day and night,” said Timothy Bean, CEO of Fortem Technologies. “With the JCO having named FAAD as their standard C2, it means we can collectively speed solutions to the warfighter and save the government time and money in getting an effective system deployed.”
