Defense Counter-UAS

The threat of uncrewed aircraft systems or drones to defense, military installations, and soldiers has become a significant concern due to the constantly evolving capabilities. Drones, when used for malicious purposes or operated by adversaries, can pose various challenges to military and defense operations. Drones can be weaponized to carry out targeted attacks on military bases, personnel, or critical infrastructure. Weaponized drones can deliver explosives, conduct airstrikes, or carry out other forms of asymmetric warfare but can also be used for intelligence, surveillance, or reconnaissance (ISR) operations.
