SAN DIEGO, Calif. After testing, evaluation, and operational assessments from over two dozen customer groups, Citadel Defense has received $9.2 million in orders for their counter-unmanned aerial system (C-UAS) capabilities in the first two months of the year. According to the company, Citadel's Titan C-UAS technology will be used to protect high-value assets in urban, rural, and maritime environments.

As new unmanned aerial systems (UASs) are released to the market, Titan systems receive new software to address the evolving threats. Titan's are also equipped with artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms that, if the threat is not detected right away, are designed to deliver an end-to-end capability in 72 hours for most drones and less than four weeks for the more complex drone signals.

The use of AI, deepnets, and adaptive countermeasures are intended to provide Titan with scalable force protection that can address the needs of the small unit, a large base, or mobile vehicle. According to company officials, this approach allows the Titan system to address new threats without the risk that comes with hacking the drone link.

The company's Titan system is now being integrated into layered solutions that combine radar, optics, and kinetic countermeasures to help customers detect, identify, track, defeat, and report on UAS threats
