AUDS Anti UAV Defense System
UAV Detection, Tracking & Disruption System

AUDS is designed to disrupt and neutralize Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) engaged in Hostile Airborne Surveillance and potentially Malicious Activity. The AUDS system combines electronic scanning radar target detection & classification, Electro Optic (EO) tracking and directional RF inhibition capability over three independent RF bands (GPS L1, 915MHz ISM and 2.4GHz ISM).

The Anti-UAV Defense System

AUDS is a smart-sensor and effector package capable of remotely detecting small Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAVs) 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.

The Advanced Technology Group, ATG, brings together three leading British companies each with the unique capabilities required to create AUDS. The Blighter Surveillance Systems Blighter A400 series Air Security radar is able to DETECT small UAVs in all weather conditions 24 hours a day. The Chess Dynamics EO/IR camera system, with state-of-the-art video tracking technology, is able to TRACK the UAV and, combined with radar target information, classify the target. The operator is then able to make a timely and informed decision to use the Enterprise Control Systems Ltd, ECS, smart RF inhibitor to selectively interfere with the C2 channels on the UAV allowing the system to DISRUPT the UAV’s mission.
