Citadel Defense Secures $9.2M Order for Titan C-UAS Systems

Titan AI capabilities deliver proven force protection against sUAS threats and swarms

SAN DIEGO, March 3, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Malicious use of small drones continues to impact military, government, and commercial operations. After extensive testing, evaluation, and operational assessments from over two dozen customer groups, Citadel Defense has received $9.2M in orders for their industry-proven C-UAS capabilities in the first two months of the year. 

Citadel Defense pioneered a new proprietary radiofrequency detection method using AI and deep learning which offers significant benefits over traditional library scanning methods and demodulation solutions offered by other C-UAS sensor providers.

Citadel's Titan C-UAS technology will be used to protect high-value assets in urban, rural, and maritime environments.  In austere and uncertain environments, operator's trust Citadel's autonomous, full-spectrum protection to accurately detect and defeat threat sUAS targets before they become a threat.

"Drones are an asymmetric threat that require unprecedented speed for innovation.  Citadel's AI-capabilities and responsiveness give customers a cost-effective option that addresses a very large portion of the sUAS threat," said Christopher Williams, CEO of Citadel Defense.  "Strong Warfighter references and combat-proven results over the last two years helped secure this order."

As new drones are released to the market, Titan systems receive new software to address the new threats.  If Titan's AI algorithms do not detect the threat right away, the company explained that it can deliver an end-to-end capability in 72 hours for most drones and less than 4 weeks for the most complex drone signals.  The use of AI, deepnets, and adaptive countermeasures provide Titan with scalable force protection that can address the needs of the small unit, a large base, or mobile vehicle.  

"We prioritize safety, security, and a clear airspace above all else," Williams explains.  "Our AI approach allows us to quickly address new threats without the risks or uncertainty that comes with hacking the drone link.  Citadel is able to reliably keep customers ahead of the ever-evolving threat faster than other solutions in the market."

The company's Titan system is now being effectively integrated into layered solutions that combine radar, optics, and kinetic countermeasures to help customers detect, identify, track, defeat, and report on threat sUAS.
