Counter-drone company Citadel Defense has announced it has secured a multimillion-dollar government order for its Titan C system. Citadel’s system was chosen after an evaluation took a look at two dozen systems from companies around the world.

The Titan system was chosen as it addresses one of the major challenges currently faced in the anti-drone world: drones’ mobility. Citadel’s system can be stationary or mobile along with being mounted to vehicles or troops. This way, a dynamic force field can essentially be set up around a base, troops, or convoy.

Citadel’s radiofrequency sensors used the latest AI and machine learning detection systems to integrate layered counter-drone solutions better. The system uses an open architecture that allows for quick development and integration with other sensors and systems.

Citadel hopes to make counter-drone tech a norm across the government, military, and commercial industry. Thanks to $30 million in funding from the government, Citadel Defense has tripled the manufacturing of its Titan solution.

CEO of Citadel Defense Christopher William shared:

As the only automated RF sensor solution in the market that uses AI and machine learning to detect, identify, track, and safely defeat uncooperative drones, Titan is a force multiplier for US and allied forces. 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. With hundreds of sensors now deployed, Citadel is helping customers detect shifting trends in drone activity on a global scale to help stay ahead of the threat.
