Artificial Intelligence: Citadel Receives Multiple Contracts For Its AI-Based Anti-Drone System From Five Eyes

March 22, 2021 | Artificial Intelligence, News

The Five Eyes (FVEY) is an intelligence alliance comprising Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

Citadel Defense announced Thursday that it had won multiple counter-drone delivery contracts from Five Eyes (FVEY) customers. The company said its Titan counter unmanned aircraft system (CUAS) had been chosen based on the experience during joint missions with U.S. forces, and after three years of deployments for military and federal agencies.

Citadel said the Titan system (pictured above) was effective against about 98% of commercially available drone platforms and that it came with low support, training, and sustainment costs.

Titan establishes a hemisphere of protection well beyond the line of sight in less than 5 minutes without any operator training or calibration burden, Citadel says on its website.

It operates autonomously, using artificial intelligence and machine learning to achieve the fastest C-sUAS response times.

“Titan was engineered with artificial intelligence, machine learning, and adaptive countermeasures to make every operator, regardless of training or job specialty, capable of preventing drone attacks with low-collateral impact,” explains Christopher Williams, CEO of Citadel Defense.

Earlier this month, Citadel announced the launch of a Tactical Assault Kit (TAK) based counter-unmanned aircraft system (C-UAS) platform that informs security teams of unwanted drone activity and empowers authorized operators to neutralize threats within their airspace.

Developed jointly with Syzygy Integration, the custom counter-drone application accelerates situational awareness and coordinated responses to suspicious drone activity around critical infrastructure, National Special Security Events (NSSE), military bases, and the border.

“This capability enables real-time C-UAS intelligence and mitigation of unwanted drone activity from anywhere in the world,” said Wesley Mitchell, President of Syzygy. “This capability helps first responders and government agents respond quickly and more safely.”
