ELTA North America has delivered the final advanced counter-drone solution, the ‘On-The-Move V4 (OTM V4)’ counter-small uncrewed aerial system (C-sUAS).

The OTM V4 C-sUAS systems have been developed for use by the US Department of Defense (DoD) and the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

The On-The-Move V4 is designed to address the capability of Assistant Secretary of Defense Special Operations / Low-Intensity Conflict (ASD SO/LIC) Irregular Warfare Technical Support Directorate (IWTSD) Mobile C-sUAS Defense-in-Depth.

Since December last year, a total of five OTM V4 vehicle system integrations have been handed over by ELTA North America. The deliveries are under contract with the IWTSD.

IWTSD Tactical Offensive Support programme manager Mike Trexler said: “We are very pleased with the progress ELTA North America, D-FEND Solutions, and Smart Shooter has made on the spiral development and integration of the advanced Mobile C-sUAS Defense-In-Depth Capability.

“We look forward to continuing small tactical team operational testing and evaluations in a variety of scenarios and environments in FY 22.”

According to the company, the OTM V4 is a multi-sensor, multi-layered solution designed for early warning, detection and defeat of rotary and fixed-wing UASs.

The system offers soft kill and hard kill mitigation options to defeat threat drones with very little or no collateral damage.

ELTA North America CEO William Ostrowski said: “The OTM V4 is a truly innovative C-sUAS offering that we are proud to provide to our military forces and DHS security agents in the field.

“Its ability to provide increased standoff for the safety of troops will remain a critical priority as we continue to develop advanced defence technologies.”
