Chess Dynamics to provide counter-UAS tracking and control systems

The mobile counter-drone system provides habitable space for the soldier - enabling increased capabilities




Chess Dynamics awarded US Department of Defence subcontract for a counter-UAV solution

Chess Dynamics Ltd has  been awarded a sub contract to provide electro-optical (EO) tracking and control systems to be incorporated into ten ISO containers as part of a counter-unmanned aircraft system (C-UAS) solution to the US Department of Defence.

The system integrates the C-UAS solution AUDS within a fully-mobile container unit which provides protective and habitable space for the soldier – enabling deployment in areas other surveillance can’t reach.

RECOMMENDED: How will drones affect infantry tactics?

The order, worth in excess of £3 million will be delivered in 2019 and was secured through Liteye, the US partner of Chess Dynamics. The contract will see the AUDS technology, proven in US military operations in the Middle East, used in countering drone threats at US borders, airports and protecting critical infrastructure.

"This is one of a number of recent orders for the ISO containerised C-UAS solution, which clearly demonstrates the confidence and trust that customers have in the system"

Graham Beall, CEO of Chess Dynamics, commented “The award of this contract further strengthens our relationship with the US Department of Defence and supports its counter-UAS capability through the use of fully equipped, flexible and easily-deployable ISO containers.
