Citadel Defense teamed with Syzygy Integration to develop Tactical Assault Kit custom counter drone application for US DoD


Citadel Defense teamed with Syzygy Integration to develop a custom counter drone application for the Department of Defense and federal government agencies. The application accelerates situational awareness and coordinated responses to uncooperative drone activity around critical infrastructure, National Special Security Events (NSSE), military bases, and the border.

Citadel Defense is a counter-drone company that builds technology for the military, domestic security, and commercial applications. The US Special Forces, Army, Navy, Air Force, Department of Homeland Security, Border Patrol, and Coast Guard used the company’s technology. Citadel Defense uses its technology to protect soldiers on the ground with its ultra-portable Titan units. It is also used to defend US Navy fleets, the border force, critical infrastructure, ports and harbors, high-value assets, VIP events, and airports from drone incursions.

Working alongside government stakeholders, Citadel and Syzygy developed a Tactical Assault Kit (TAK) based counter-unmanned aircraft system (C-UAS) platform that informs security teams of unwanted drone activity and empowers authorized operators to protect their airspace.

Christopher Williams, CEO of Citadel Defense, explains, “Combining Titan’s artificial intelligence foundation with the new TAK-based application delivers a force multiplying capability needed by resource-constrained security teams.”

 

Citadel is addressing a critical operational need for cost-effective, rapidly deployable, and operator-portable C-UAS solutions that work across the entire defense chain, which includes detecting the drone, classifying it, locating it, and safely neutralizing it with a low-collateral effector. The solution is rolling out to military and federal customers throughout 2021.

Titan’s mission planning application provides warfighters, federal agents, and law enforcement the ability to locate the drone, locate the pilot or safely neutralize an immediate threat when kinetic effectors are not allowed.

The solution uses secure messaging, cross-agency collaboration tools, and a cloud-based infrastructure for anytime, anywhere access.

“We are excited to have SNAP fully integrated with the Titan platform. This capability will enable real-time C-UAS intelligence and immediate mitigation of those threats from anywhere in the world. This will help first responders and government agents respond quickly and more safely,” said Wesley Mitchell, President of Syzygy.
