European developer Milrem Robotics and counter unmanned aerial system (C-UAS) solutions provider Marduk Technologies have introduced a mobile autonomous C-UAS platform.

The jointly developed autonomous C-UAS system is designed to protect frontline forces against loitering munition and surveillance drones. It accurately identifies, classifies and engages the threats.

It leverages advanced artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) models and can be integrated ‘with kinetic and non-kinetic weapon systems’.

Marduk Technologies CEO Martin Simon said: “Frontline forces on the move are most exposed to adversary drones.

“The mobile autonomous C-UAS platform gives our customers an additional layer of protection and extends our product portfolio, which lets us provide more capabilities for our defence customers.”

The system features the electro-optical C-UAS platform Marduk Shark and Milrem THeMIS unmanned ground vehicle (UGV).

It can also be integrated with different sensors and effectors such as radar, radio frequency (RF) detector, jammer and laser.

Milrem Robotics CEO Kuldar Väärsi said: “Autonomous UGVs equipped with a C-UAS payload create a new capability on the battlefield that allows forces to focus on their main task of engaging the adversary while UGVs provide better situational awareness and force protection.”

According to Milrem, mobile platforms that are equipped with autonomous capabilities offer flexibility to defences forces to relocate threats and early warning.
