The operationally ready, field-proven, Silent Archer counter-UAS system detects, tracks, classifies, identifies and disrupts low, slow and small unmanned airborne threats, commonly referred to as drones.
SRC's Silent Archer counter-unmanned aircraft system (UAS) offering combines proven, TRL 8/9 radar and electronic warfare (EW) systems, camera and a 3-D user display to defeat hostile drones, whether a lone target or a UAS swarm. It provides spatial, frequency and optical surveillance capabilities to detect, track, classify and identify the airborne threat. It then applies low-cost, low risk electronic methods to disrupt the UAS, such as jamming the communications links between the operator and the aircraft.
The Silent Archer system is offered as a complete, end-to-end counter-UAS solution for applications such as:
- Force protection in contested environments
- Critical infrastructure protection
- Security for VIPs and high profile events
- Urban environment surveillance
SRC has successfully demonstrated the Silent Archer anti-drone system's ability to detect, track, identify and defeat UAS at U.S. government-sponsored counter-UAS test events like JIAMDO’s Black Dart, the Army Warfighting Assessment (AWA), Network Integration Evaluation (NIE), and Maneuvers and Fires Integrated Exercise (MFIX).
