Anduril and Epirus integration designed to increase US Marine Corps counter-UAS capabilities

Anduril Industries and Epirus recently completed a Counter-Unmanned Aerial Systems (C-UAS) software integration to support technology evaluations from the US Marine Corps Warfighting Laboratory (MCWL) as part of its ongoing efforts to analyze new technologies for the US Marine Corps Force Design 2030 process.

According to the press release, this partnership was made possible through an integration between Epirus’ Leonidas system, a high-power microwave (HPM) counter-swarm defeat capability and Anduril’s Lattice Command and Control (C2) system. Leonidas is a software-defined HPM weapon designed to defeat swarming UAS. With a deep magazine, the system enables near instantaneous defeat of electronic threats. Lattice combines Anduril’s artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies to detect, track, and classify objects of interest in an operator’s vicinity.

Lattice combines the phases of the C-UAS kill chain into an open architecture operating system, providing support for threat detection, tracking, identification, and defeat in a way that is made available to users across a network, not just locally with the system. Lattice also layers in software capabilities to enable automated sensor processing, robotic controls, sensor fusion, correlation, classification and disposition of targets, and can provide recommended courses of action to the operator to provide a C2 platform designed to support multiple air defense missions. This integration with Epirus’ Leonidas is designed to be used as a part of a series of various layered defeat capabilities connected to Anduril’s Lattice Operating System.

Anduril and Epirus will continue to collaborate to build new capabilities in support of the MCWL’s ongoing efforts to develop and integrate C-UAS sensors, effectors, and C2 systems into concept-based experiments to inform requirements in support of the US Marine Corps’ Force Design process to enhance ground forces’ ability to detect and defeat small UAS.
