Anti-UAV Defense System (AUDS)
AUDS Anti-UAV Defense System
Designed to disrupt and neutralize Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) engaged in hostile airborne surveillance and potentially malicious activity.
AUDS is currently deployed with US forces and has numerous confirmed defeats, or kills, of enemy UAS in theatre.
AUDS is likely to be an integral part of a wider networked surveillance and defense system. Its soft kill capabilities make it a very attractive option for both military, internal and border security forces. Where the situation demands restraint under provocation and where active, yet discrete, deterrence is required, AUDS delivers a very powerful message. The system can be operated from both fixed locations and from a mobile platform, where mobility offers both flexibility and protection.
AUDS IS THE WORLD’S FIRST FULLY INTEGRATED COUNTER-UAS SYSTEM
AUDS - DETECT to DEFEAT in seconds
Countering the threat caused by rogue drones is now a global issue and an increasing concern for the military, government and homeland security forces across every continent. It is expected that unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) will be used increasingly for malicious purposes as they can carry cameras, weapons, toxic chemicals and explosives and are being used increasingly for terrorism, espionage and smuggling purposes. Utilising robust battle proven technology from Blighter Surveillance Systems, Chess Dynamics and Enterprise Control Systems, this fully integrated mission-deployed TRL-9 rated system, can detect, track and defeat a drone in seconds at a range of up to 10 km (6 miles). The AUDS system detects the drone using state-of-the-art electronic scanning micro-Doppler radar, tracks it using high precision infrared and daylight cameras and advanced video tracking software, before using a non-kinetic radio frequency (RF) inhibitor to defeat the drone. Using AUDS, an operator can effectively take control of the drone and force a safe landing.
