Citadel Defense has received a multi-million-dollar government contract for its Titan AI-powered, RF-based counter drone system. Under this contract, Titan systems are being delivered in response to urgent needs.
Citadel’s technology was selected following a competitive evaluation of two dozen competitive counter small unmanned aircraft systems (C-sUAS). According to the manufacturer, Titan proved highly effective in complex urban environments and was preferred by operators as it exhibited technical superiority across many unpredictable threat scenarios including drone swarms.
“As the only automated RF sensor solution in the market that uses AI and machine learning to detect, identify, track and safely defeat uncooperative drones, Titan is a force multiplier for US and allied forces,” said Christopher Williams, CEO of Citadel Defense.
Titan was created to protect troops and high value assets against unwanted drone activity and swarms when large multi-sensor systems cannot be deployed. At locations where integrated systems are installed, Titan serves as the RF defence layer, bringing a low false alarm rate, targeted countermeasures and a broad level of threat coverage to highly integrated counter drone solutions.
“AI, machine learning and adaptive countermeasures are required for the C-sUAS mission,” stated Williams. “New commercial UAS platforms have over 100 controller settings that can change a drone’s communication signature. Library-dependent and cyber-focused systems simply can’t keep up. With hundreds of sensors now deployed, Citadel is helping customers detect shifting trends in drone activity on a global scale to help stay ahead of the threat.”
