Multi-Domain Counter-Unmanned Systems Solution Upgraded

Citadel Titan counter-unmanned systems solution

Citadel Defense has upgraded its AI (artificial intelligence)-based Titan counter-drone solution to detect, identify, and defeat unmanned systems on land or at sea, such as UGVs (unmanned ground vehicles) and USVs (unmanned surface vehicles), as well as UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles). Titan uses enhanced sensor fusion technologies to overcome limitations often common to radar or cyber-takeover-based systems that are caused by ground clutter or unfamiliar new threats.

Citadel has remained responsive with upgrades to their versatile algorithms, providing force protection against surface-based threats and ground robotic platforms as well as small unmanned aerial systems. These threats are creating challenges for military and security teams that legacy electronic warfare and most C-UAS systems fail to address.

Citadel’s new updated software will be rolled out to over a hundred existing Titan systems already in the field. Titan’s open architecture ensures that the breadth of capability and protection offered by the system can be integrated into any layered system acquired by U.S. military, government, or commercial customers.

Christopher Williams, CEO of Citadel Defense, commented: “Unmanned systems have changed the landscape of military, intelligence, and security operations. We must think beyond aerial threats when protecting personnel and sensitive critical infrastructure. If our military is using RC-controlled platforms across each domain, we must expect that our adversaries will too.”

“We used cognitive technologies including robotic process automation, AI, and deep learning from the very beginning of our development two years ago. End user and environmental feedback refined our models allowing us to deliver a nimble system with immediate software patches to stay ahead of our adversaries. Having this capability effective across fixed, mobile, and dismounted operations is a disruptive technology that meets the doctrinal needs of our military.”
