EOS launched its Australian designed and developed counter unmanned aerial system (C-UAS) solution, Titanis. Speaking at the launch, Justin Olde, vice president of Business Development, EOS Defence Systems, said, “Titanis represents EOS’ leadership in integrated counter unmanned aerial systems technology. Building on decades of stabilised weapon and laser system development, EOS is excited to publicly release Titanis and its integrated C4ISREW backbone. This includes our 35kW directed energy system which is an essential part of the system’s ability to defeat drone swarms. Titanis is the most flexible and cost effective response to this emerging asymmetric threat.”
Countering the threat caused by drones is now a global issue and an increasing concern for the military, government and homeland security forces across every continent. It is expected that unmanned aerial systems (UAS) will be used increasingly for malicious purposes as the cameras, weapons, toxic chemicals and explosives they are able to carry will be used for acts of terrorism, espionage and smuggling.
The Titanis Counter UAS (C-UAS) system has been developed by EOS to address the growing threat from malicious and threatening unmanned aircraft systems. Based on the EOS R-Series remote weapon stations (RWS), Titanis is a fully integrated, detection, command and control (C2), and layered hard and soft kill defeat capabilities necessary to acquire, track, and defeat swarming UAS threats.
The Titanis system allows the operators to match kill solutions to large numbers and varying combinations of small and large drones to ensure that the threat can be mitigated regardless of their direction, numbers and capabilities while managing the environmental, geographic, airspace and personnel safety considerations.
