The US Government has awarded Citadel Defense with a contract to expand development of its CUAS technology.
Targeting threatening drones and swarms, the company’s mobile system has now been operated by each military service and a number of government agencies.
Citadel has also detailed how it thinks its solution has potential for broader commercial application.
Christopher Williams, CEO of Citadel Defense, commented: “We’ve attracted some of the world’s most talented engineers. We are creating new and innovative solutions with deep learning, AI, and software-controlled hardware, that allow us to address new threats in weeks rather than months or years.”
He added: “Our technology detected and defeated drones the system never saw before. Rapidly fielding this capability with unprecedented speed and agility advantages our warfighters.”
