Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UASs) or drones pose a significant risk to personnel and infrastructure as well as ships, aircraft, and vehicles. They are difficult to track, identify, and defeat. The low cost and ease of operation make them ideal for asymmetric warfare.
One of the major challenges has been detection, discrimination, and tracking at distance. When combined with existing radar and fire control systems, Psionic Doppler Lidar can discriminate and provide target distance and vector velocity over extended ranges.
