Anduril Industries has released the Interceptor drone as part of the Lattice AI cUAS (counter Unmanned Aerial System) solution.
Developers say its aim is to detect and interdict unmanned aircraft or autonomous drone systems.
This system uses Anduril technology to what it describes as the “increasingly critical counter-drone mission”, in order to provide an additional dimension of force protection for military personnel and installations or critical infrastructure.
Whether seamlessly integrated with Lattice AI or manually cued, a human operator can verify targets and launch Interceptor drones to kill rotary or fixed-wing threats autonomously in any environment, day or night.
Brian Schimpf, Anduril’s CEO, commented: “Unmanned aerial systems have long been notoriously difficult to defend against: they are widely available, inexpensive, and dangerous in the wrong hands.”
He added: “Our counter-UAS solution applies automated target acquisition to give human operators the capability to quickly and effectively neutralize these growing aerial threats.”
