Technology Spotlight
Drone integrated acquisition tracker
Naval Surface Warfare Center - Crane Division
Navy scientists invented a system for drone detection, tracking, and remote controlling.

The technology has the ability to not only receive signals but also transmit signals. For C-UAS missions, the system can transmit signals to jam the command and control (C2), telemetry, video, and GPS of the UAS. The system can also send legitimate but spoofed signals to deceive.

The patented technology is available via patent license agreement to companies that would make, use, or sell it commercially.
