SAN DIEGO, Calif. Citadel Defense has received a multi-million-dollar government contract for their Titan, an AI-powered, radiofrequency (RF) based counter drone system. 

According to the company, the Titan is designed to protect troops and high value assets against unwanted drone activity and swarms when multi-sensor systems cannot be deployed.

At locations where integrated systems are installed, Titan is intended to serve as the RF defense layer with a low false alarm rate, targeted countermeasures, and broad level of threat coverage to highly integrated counter drone solutions.

“AI, machine learning and adaptive countermeasures are required for the C-sUAS mission. New commercial UAS platforms have over 100 controller settings that can change a drone’s communication signature. Library-dependent and cyber-focused systems simply can’t keep up,” says Christopher Williams, CEO of Citadel Defense.

Under this contract, Titan systems are being delivered in response to urgent needs.
