TACTICAL ATTACK DRONE
Our SAVAGE (Smart Anti-Vehicle Aerial Guided Engagement) weapon system is designed to capture, disable or destroy small enemy Unmanned Aerial Vehicles "UAVs" or drones (Group 1), and incorporates machine learning and artificial intelligence "AI". Our proprietary computer vision algorithms along with an electro-optical day/night/infrared sensor allows the tactical RaptorDrone to follow the target autonomously and deploy up to six Mach 0.5+ SAVAGE missiles.
RaptorDrone is a microprocessor controlled, electric ducted fan, tactical STOL with 1-2 hour flight time and 125 mph speed, giving our missiles extended range and 24/7 day/night coverage.
SAVAGE products have been designed using aerodynamic computer simulation, and tested in our wind tunnel for maximum range, velocity and maneuverability. The rocket propelled missiles "RPM" are equipped with a metal tipped nose cone for maximum impact effectiveness, and a net and parachute to safely return the drone and missile to the ground for safe recovery if needed. RaptorDrone can patrol a predetermined area autonomously and fire missiles at a combined velocity of Mach 0.7. SAVAGE will give airports, embassies, government buildings, power grids, convoys, factories, oil refineries, pipelines, stadiums, etc. the ability to defend against an attack by armed enemy drones at long range, 24/7 in extreme weather conditions.
There are many RF/GPS jamming systems on the market today but they are not going to be enough to stop an attack by a "swarm" of autonomous enemy drones. Using multi-million dollar jamming systems, like MADIS, or high powered microwave systems like THOR, or even ground-based laser weapons, are not the answer. It is going to take a "launch and forget" kinetic solution like SAVAGE.
The US Military Stinger heat-seeking shoulder-fired anti-aircraft missile has recently been modified in an attempt to take down a small enemy UAV (~$500 each), but at a cost of $40,000 each! $40,000 would buy you forty SAVAGE missiles! Stingers are designed to home in on the heat of a very hot surface like a jet engine. Small drones don't produce that kind of heat!
The SAVAGE missile is a high-velocity (Mach 0.5+) rocket propelled missile "RPM" equipped with a metal tip. It uses on-board computer vision with proprietary algorithms that detects and tracks the target after being launched until it reaches the target, keeping the UAV in its "sights" by means of servo activated fins.
RPM-2 shoulder-fired, single-tube, light-weight launcher for 40mm SAVAGE guided missiles. Our RPM-2 weapon system is designed to capture, disable or destroy small enemy Unmanned Aerial Vehicles "UAVs" or drones (Group 1), and incorporates machine learning and artificial intelligence "AI". Our proprietary computer vision algorithms along with an electro-optical/infrared sensor allows the guided missile to detect the UAV after being fired from the RPM-2 launcher and then track it until it reaches the target. The launcher is equipped with a long range optical scope to assist the warfighter in locating the drone at a distance.

Laser Truck-Mounted C-UAS System
Laser truck mounted C-UAS systems are all the rage today! The problem is these $3 million systems have some serious limitations: The enemy drones can be covered with a reflective material, they can be protected with a simple heat shield. It can be a cloudy day, and there can be a large number of rugged drones (not toy drones) that the laser can not destroy in time. The biggest problem with lasers is that they can unintentionally blind nearby airline pilots. A real concern at airports.
The C-UAS answer is a kinetic solution like SAVAGE.
