ELTA North America has completed the final contractual delivery of its advanced Counter-small Unmanned Aerial System (C-sUAS) solution, the On-The-Move V4 (OTM V4).
The OTM V4 is a multi-sensor, multi-layered solution for early warning, detection, disruption, and defeat of various types of rotary and fixed-wing UAS.
Developed to address the Assistant Secretary of Defense Special Operations / Low-Intensity Conflict Irregular Warfare Technical Support Directorate (IWTSD) Mobile C-sUAS Defense-in-Depth Capability, the OTM V4 is designed to operate while the vehicle is in motion, offering soft kill and hard kill mitigation options to deter threat drones with minimal to no collateral damage.
“The OTM V4 is a truly innovative C-sUAS offering that we are proud to provide to our military forces and DHS security agents in the field,” said ELTA North America CEO, William Ostrowski. “Its ability to provide increased standoff for the safety of troops will remain a critical priority as we continue to develop advanced defense technologies.”
Since December 2020, ELTA North America has delivered a total of five OTM V4 vehicle system integrations under the contract with IWTSD for use by the U.S. Department of Defense and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
“We are very pleased with the progress ELTA North America, D-FEND Solutions, and Smart Shooter has made on the spiral development and integration of the advanced Mobile C-sUAS Defense-In-Depth Capability,” IWTSD Tactical Offensive Support Program Manager, Mike Trexler, said. “We look forward to continuing small tactical team operational testing and evaluations in a variety of scenarios and environments in FY 22.”
