High Point Aerotechnologies recently demonstrated the ability to detect various swarm and “stealthy” uncrewed autonomous system (UAS) scenarios during a testing occasion arranged in collaboration with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Oklahoma State University’s CUAS Center of Excellence.
The exhibition highlighted High Point’s Sawtooth system, demonstrating its capacity to identify numerous concurrent threats spanning diverse ranges, altitudes, and velocities. This emphasized the system’s adaptability in addressing the complexities of UAS-related hazards for both government and commercial clients globally.
Traditional counter-UAS measures have faced challenges detecting swarms and no or low-RF-emitting UAS, often called “dark” drones. These unconventional drones demand specialized approaches, and High Point Aerotech’s Sawtooth system offers a multifaceted capability to identify, monitor, and counteract multiple tracks concurrently.
Al White, Chief Executive Officer of High Point Aerotech, highlighted the value of this event, “We are grateful for the efforts of Oklahoma State University and DHS S&T to create such an innovative test environment. This event was unique in that it created the opportunity for the industry to conduct real-world demonstrations of our ability to rapidly develop and deploy critical UAS defense solutions to our federal and civilian customers. We look forward to building on our strong partnership with OSU going forward.”
