Citadel Defense has delivered its artificial intelligence (AI)-powered Titan system to an undisclosed military service customer for mission-critical ground and airspace perimeter security deployments overseas.

The counter-drone (C-UAS) technology company did not reveal the number of systems delivered or further details of the contract.

Citadel’s Titan C-UAS system uses patent-protected technology combined with control software to detect, identify and defeat ground, sea and airspace drone threats.

The autonomous system, which is smaller in size, is software-defined and has smaller weight, and power requirements. It is a combination of usability, performance and price.

Titan’s easy to use interface and fully autonomous configuration act as force multipliers for any unit in high-stress environments.

Citadel Defense CEO Christopher Williams said: “Having the world’s elite warfighters turn to your technology for drone protection when crisis hits is a tremendous honour for the company.

“Titan’s proven effectiveness in combat by other warfighters like themselves provides important validation of Titan’s protection in unpredictable scenarios. This contract showcases the reliability and trust in Titan’s capabilities at a time where the global threat environment has escalated.”

The Titan system is used for situational awareness and force protection of high-value assets and resources.

The radiofrequency system will be used as a preferred protection technology against evolving air, ground and sea drone concerns.

Citadel’s Titan C-UAS technology is deployed to provide critical force protection to military services in the US in areas where the safety of troops and infrastructure is threatened by commercially available drones.
