Citadel Defense has been awarded a multi-million dollar government contract for Titan, its AI-powered, radiofrequency (RF) based counter-drone system.
Undergoing a selection process involving the evaluation of 24 counter small unmanned aircraft systems (C-sUAS), Titan demonstrated its exceptional defense capabilities as it efficiently performed in a variety of challenging environments.
Its performance as an RF defense layer consisted of targeted countermeasures, low false alarm rates, and comprehensive threat coverage against counter-drone solutions. Operators also preferred Citadel’s defense system 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 Citadel Defense CEO Christopher Williams.
Titan uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to enable autonomous operation for the fastest response to adversary small drones. The system can be set up in under five minutes with a hemisphere of protection well beyond the line of sight.
With the Pentagon acknowledging the rise of technological advances that capitalize on the blindspots of C-sUAS systems, Titan will be used to defend high-value government assets including soldiers, ships, vehicles, and military bases from drone threats when larger multi-sensor systems lack the capacity to defeat them.
“Bad actors adapt their strategy quickly when they discover a security vulnerability. 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,” Williams explained.
