AUDS counter-UAS defence system fully integrated military grade detect-track-identify-defeat counter-drone solution, has been upgraded to be deployed on military and commercial security and surveillance vehicles.
The AUDS system, already deployed and in 24/7 operations, was developed in 2015 by a consortium of UK defence companies including Blighter Surveillance Systems, Chess Dynamics and Enterprise Control Systems.
The AUDS system that has an intuitive interface is operable by a single user, and can detect, track, identify and defeat a drone in approximately 15 seconds at a range of up to 10km or six miles.
AUDS on a vehicle delivers a rapid 'on-the-pause' counter-UAV capability against drones attacking a temporary base, mobile force, convoy or a national infrastructure site.
The system has been optimised and further ruggedised for deployment on either military trucks or commercial surveillance vehicles, such as a converted Mercedes-Benz Sprinter-style van, as well as on semi-portable containers.
AUDS is already available in three standard configurations: a portable platform for rooftop installation, a rugged field-mast system for forward operating bases or temporary camps, and a fixed system for borders and critical infrastructure sites.
The AUDS system has defeated approaching 2,000 drone sorties and been tested against more than 60 types of drone including fixed wing and quadcopters.
The team recognise that co-ordinated swarm attacks are increasing - particularly in the military sector - so its engineers have been working on algorithms and techniques improving the AUDS system's capability to defeat these multi-drone attack scenarios.
The AUDS system is highly effective against multi-mode swarm attacks due its multi-band radio frequency (RF) inhibitor which can simultaneously target multiple threat 'bands' to defeat the command and control (C2) links deployed on UAVs.
AUDS detects a drone using the electronic scanning micro-Doppler radar, tracks it using a precision controlled infrared and daylight camera system incorporating advanced video tracking software before using a non-kinetic radio frequency (RF) inhibitor to defeat the drone.
Using AUDS, the operator can effectively disrupt the function of a drone enforcing an invisible impenetrable barrier.
AUDS is positioned at the strategic end of the UAS countermeasures market for use by government agencies, the police and military to protect high value critical national infrastructure and personnel or strategically important sites/events. These include nuclear power stations, borders, political, sporting or VIP events, airports and airbases.
The Spanish Defence Ministry (Ministerio de Defensa) has selected the AUDS counter-UAV system to protect critical assets and personnel from the growing threat posed by malicious unmanned aircraft systems or drones. The AUDS detect-track-identify-defeat counter-drone system was developed in 2015 by a consortium of UK defence companies including Blighter Surveillance Systems, Chess Dynamics and Enterprise Control Systems
The Pentagon has tested a swarm of 103 micro-drones launched from three F/A-18 Super Hornet planes at China Lake in California. The US department of Defense released the information to the public only now after the tests were conducted in October last year
Office of Naval Research (ONR) announced Tuesday that it recently demonstrated swarming unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) as part of the Low-Cost UAV Swarming Technology (LOCUST) program. LOCUST can launch swarming UAVs to autonomously overwhelm an adversary
