Silent Archer® Counter-UAS Technology

SRC's Silent Archer counter-UAS technology 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) technology is comprised of 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. Combined, these systems provide spatial, frequency and optical surveillance capabilities to detect, track, classify and identify the airborne threat. Once the UAS threat is identified, various low-cost, low-risk electronic methods are utilized to disrupt the UAS, such as jamming the communications links between the operator and the aircraft.

The Silent Archer technologies work together to provide 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

Proven technology

SRC has successfully demonstrated the ability for Silent Archer anti-drone technology 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).

  • Detects, tracks, classifies, identifies and engages hostile UAS threats
  • Electronically disrupts individual UAS or swarms
  • Complements kinetic weapon systems for layered defense
  • Can be deployed in fixed-site, expeditionary or fly-away configurations
  • Is the solution of choice for VIP protection and high profile events such as the G8 and G20 Summits as well as the 2012 Summer Olympics
