Citadel Defense Expands Counter-Drone Offerings
October 12, 2021
Citadel Defense announced it has expanded their intelligence and counter-unmanned aircraft systems (C-UAS, or counter-drone) with a suite of new solutions under the Titan brand. The family of C-UAS solutions are designed to keep the U.S. military ahead of the threat curve through industry-leading autonomy, artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities.
Citadel provides low size, weight, power and cost (SWAP-C) solutions that have been operationally validated across fixed, mobile, and dismounted missions, the company said. Best known for their full spectrum Titan system, Citadel launched new solutions including the Titan Drone Finder (DF), Titan Tactical Assault Kit (TAK), and the Titan Multi-Sensor (MS) to address emerging requirements.
“Our autonomous systems quickly and accurately detect, identify, track, and defeat threats without impacting legitimate UAS operations,” said Christopher Williams, CEO of Citadel Defense. “This preserves freedom of action for friendly forces and security teams.”
The company said its open software architecture supports quick integration into other command and control platforms. Using a custom ATAK software plugin, the Titan system can be autonomously monitored and controlled from anywhere in the world. The Titan Drone Finder system geolocates the pilot and drone, and tracks patterns of UAS activity for mission planning. The Titan Multi-Sensor solution integrates radar, optics, and advanced AI analytics to deliver protection.
“Countering the small UAS threat is a joint team effort,” said Williams. “We are fortunate to work with the industry’s leading technology companies to deliver the most advanced solutions for any mission set.”
Citadel Defense sells its products to the military, intelligence agencies, and homeland markets. For more details on the company, visit the Citadel Defense website here.
