  1. Attachable Jamming Module for C-sUAS

    SBC: Invisible Pack, Inc.            Topic: AF182003

    This proposal describes a very short-range jamming module that attaches to AF Security Forces Remington 870 model shotguns to augment their performance with the ALS skynet round.The module makes the threat drone 'freeze' long enough for effective deployment of the net round.This module can be used with any C-sUAS weapon or platform deploying ALS net rounds. It can also be mounted onto a pistol gri ...

  2. High Energy Laser for C-UAS


    Both commercial and military laser systems can be effective but have limited applicability for counter unmanned aircraft systems (C-UAS). Commercial lasers are underpowered and unsuitable for military environments, while military lasers are too large, heavy, and expensive for tactical applications. In Phase I, we will assess the feasibility of modifying commercial lasers for C-UAS applications. Th ...
