AUDS (Anti-UAV Defence System) is a counter drone system that is designed to disrupt and neutralise unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), remotely piloted aircraft systems (RPAS) or unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) engaged in hostile airborne surveillance and potentially malicious activity. The AUDS system combines electronic-scanning radar target detection, electro-optical (EO) tracking/classification and directional RF inhibition capability. AUDS is a smart-sensor and effector package capable of remotely detecting small UAVs and then tracking and classifying them before providing the option to disrupt their activity. The system may be used in remote or urban areas to prevent UAVs being used for terrorist attacks, espionage or other malicious activities against sites with critical infrastructure. Chess Dynamics Inc. with its U.S. partners, have delivered numbers of integrated kinetic and non-kinetic systems in various deployed configurations, including military vehicles to meet urgent operational requirements. These advanced systems have been extensively trialled and tested, achieving TRL9 status in 2016 and now in active service from late 2017.
AUDS is field proven to detect all types of drones including fixed wing and quadcopters. The consortium is also committed to constantly evolving the AUDS platform to respond to new threats and stay ahead in the dynamic UAS countermeasures market.
