US Government partners with Citadel Defense to deploy counter drone solutions

Citadel Defense has announced it has worked with three undisclosed US Government agencies for six months to deploy counter drone technology that meets regulatory, safety and critical infrastructure protection requirements, the company said.

Throughout the pilot program, Citadel´s Titan technology has been operated in real-world missions for CUAS protection at live events throughout the continental United States. The company´s Titan counter drone solution uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to protect critical infrastructure, live events, and high value assets from nefarious or careless drone use.

Designed and developed in the United States, Citadel´s Titan is part of an ecosystem of counter drone capabilities that cost-effectively addresses US Senate and Congressional requests for safe national security protection from nefarious or careless drone use in 2020.

Drones have been notoriously difficult to defend and protect against. They are easily purchased, adapted for weaponization, can execute cybersecurity attacks, and can be extremely dangerous in wrong or careless hands. While other companies have focused on solutions that only address fixed locations, Citadel continues to build solutions alongside government agencies that address their dynamic and always changing threat environment.

Citadel Defense is a counter-drone (C-UAS) technology company that builds industry-leading drone mitigation solutions for military, homeland security and commercial applications. Citadel technology is trusted by commercial, Government, and military users including, US Special Forces, Army, Navy, Air Force, Department of Homeland Security, Border Patrol, and Coast Guard.
