DoD taps BlueHalo’s Titan counter-drone tech in $24 million deal
The Department of Defense (DoD), which oversees management of US military agencies, has awarded security tech company BlueHalo a $24 million contract to provide its Titan counter-drone systems for quick deployment and effective protection of troops and assets.
Under its accord with the DoD, BlueHalo will provide multiple units of its Titan counter-drone system, which can be set up inside five minutes to provide situational awareness and reliable protection from hostile UAVs for both soldiers and non-combatant users. Titan is enhanced by artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities that interface with its radio frequency-based methods of incapacitating invasive or threatening craft around designated airspaces.
