Sierra Nevada Corporation along with its partners Ascent Vision and RADA Technologies will participate in the SOFWERX ThunderDrone Rapid Prototyping Event (RPE) III demonstration with their X-MADIS (eXpeditionary Mobile Aerial Defense Integrated System).
X-MADIS is a self-contained, fully mobile and integrated counter-unmanned aerial systems (C-UAS) capability. The C-UAS, radar and Electro-Optical/Infrared (EO/IR) equipment is integrated into a commercial off-road vehicle that can detect, locate, identify, track, exploit and defeat an enemy UAS (also known as drone) to protect airports, no-fly zones and other high-value infrastructure, the company said in a statement Tuesday.
SOFWERX is a Partnership Intermediary Agreement between Doolittle Institute and the United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM), created to investigate new technology in an effort to put the most advanced capabilities into warfighters’ hands. The demo will be held at Nellis Air Force Base next month.
The SOFWERX RPE demonstration events began in June 2017 and have evaluated more than 450 technological capabilites aimed at bringing sea-, land-, and air-based UAS, tactical swarms, payloads (kinetic/non-kinetic/sensors), and their associated data science applications to the Special Operations Community.
