SAN DIEGO - Citadel Defense, a trusted supplier of combat-proven counter drone technology to militaries, governments, and commercial organizations, has expanded their industry-leading AI solution to detect, identify, and defeat unmanned systems in the air, on land, or at sea. Where other C-UAS sensing modalities using radar or cyber takeover tactics are limited by ground clutter or responsiveness to new threats, Citadel’s Titan enhances those technologies to deliver necessary force protection when all sensors are fused together.

“Unmanned systems have changed the landscape of military, intelligence, and security operations. We must think beyond aerial threats when protecting personnel and sensitive critical infrastructure. If our military is using RC-controlled platforms across each domain, we must expect that our adversaries will too,” says Christopher Williams, CEO of Citadel Defense.

As small unmanned systems become a more popular weapon of choice, Citadel has remained agile with their AI and machine learning algorithms to address surface-based threats and robotic platforms. These threats are creating challenges for military and security teams that legacy electronic warfare and most C-UAS systems fail to address.

Citadel’s software will be rolled out to over 100+ Titan systems in the field. Titan’s open architecture ensures that the breadth of capability and protection offered by the Titan can be integrated into any layered system purchased by U.S. military, government, or commercial customers.

“We used cognitive technologies including robotic process automation, AI, and deep learning from the very beginning of our development two years ago. End user and environmental feedback refined our models allowing us to deliver a nimble system with immediate software patches to stay ahead of our adversaries. Having this capability effective across fixed, mobile, and dismounted operations is a disruptive technology that meets the doctrinal needs of our military” explained Williams.

Titan offers an industry-leading radiofrequency and electronic countermeasure capability that addresses the counter unmanned system mission set across the full spectrum of operations within a standalone system. Citadel’s commercially available and combat proven technology was the first to apply AI and machine learning to the counter unmanned system problem. These technological advancements, coupled with the systems autonomous operation, highlight the company’s disruptive approach that puts the priorities of the warfighter, national security, and taxpayers first.
