US Army to host C-UAS event to promote emerging technology and procurement plans

The US Department of Defense (DoD) is hosting a virtual industry open house on 30 October 2020 to outline its approach to Counter Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (C-sUAS). The event is open to all vendors interested in C-sUAS and will cover key aspects including strategy, training, current capabilities and operational capability requirements.

The one-day online event will inform vendors on upcoming efforts to align C-sUAS systems into an enduring and integrated enterprise approach. The C-sUAS Industry Open House will be hosted by the Joint Counter-small Unmanned Aircraft System Office (JCO) and the Army Rapid Capabilities and Critical Technologies Office (RCCTO). The C-sUAS Industry Open House will provide information regarding emerging requirements, address the multitude of C-sUAS challenges, and encourage competition and efficiencies in future technology development and procurement activities.

Prior to the C-sUAS Industry Open House, the Department of Defense expects to validate the operational capability requirements for C-sUAS as well as finalize its C-sUAS strategy and Industry Engagement Plan, which together will serve as the basis for providing a path ahead for innovation opportunities, evaluations, and industry demonstration.

The Department of Defense designated the Army as the Executive Agent for C-sUAS. The Secretary of the Army established the Joint C-sUAS Office (JCO) to lead and direct efforts to identify and prioritize Joint improvement opportunities and C-sUAS solutions.

The RCCTO’s mission is to rapidly and efficiently research, develop, prototype, test, evaluate, procure, transition, and/or field critical enabling technologies and capabilities that address near-term and mid-term threats. The RCCTO serves as the materiel and acquisition lead in support of the JCO.
