Citadel Defense receives U.S. Government contract to expand development of their CUAS technology that defeats threat drones and swarms
SAN DIEGO, Calif., - The United States Air Force has awarded Citadel Defense with another contract for their counter drone solution. The company's mobile system has now been operated by each military service and many government agencies.
Through autonomy, proprietary machine learning and artificial intelligence capabilities, Citadel Defense allows military forces to gain a modernized capability designed and developed to evolve with the pace of the growing threat.
When asked by a Senior Air Force Official how the company stays ahead of the rapidly changing threat, Christopher Williams, CEO of Citadel Defense answered, "We've attracted some of the world's most talented engineers. We are creating new and innovative solutions with deep learning, AI, and software-controlled hardware, that allow us to address new threats in weeks rather than months or years. Our technology detected and defeated drones the system never saw before. Rapidly fielding this capability with unprecedented speed and agility advantages our warfighters."
Will Roper, USAF's Assistant Secretary for Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics, has improved how the USAF partners with companies like Citadel to field tomorrow's military faster and smarter than ever before. When asked about the importance of Citadel's mission, LTC(R) Matt England, U.S. Army and now VP of Business Development for Citadel, said, "Our Titan CUAS system autonomously clears the Warfighter's airspace, allowing them to be unconcerned with threat drones and purely focused on the mission at hand. It's the quintessential Force Multiplier to protect Servicemen and women while empowering their mission."
