Focus Area: Individual Protection and Survivability
Description: Develop an operational system capable of radio controlled model aircraft (RCMA) detection, geolocation, tracking, and disruption for the protection of government assets on the move CONUS and OCONUS. The system will detect specified, low altitude RCMA-associated signals within a 360-degree field of view to an objective range of 5 km, will be capable of simultaneously detecting at least two RCMA signals.
Project Cost: $8.6M
Project Duration: 24 months
Operational Impact: Provide situational awareness to end users in transit where UAS threats are present and provide those users the ability to counter the threat while in transit.
Deliverable: 15 Systems
Performer: BIT Systems
End Users: U.S. Navy, U.S. Air Force, Department of State, U.S. Special Forces
Transition: Systems will transition to end users for operational evaluation and will be available for procurement by federal agencies.
