Drone Defense

Small and expendable, Coyote is able to defeat small to large target Unmanned Aircraft Systems at longer ranges and higher altitudes than similar class effectors. It is able to defeat single drone threats as well as swarms, supported by reduced engagement timelines to defeat multiple targets.

Paired with Raytheon’s Ku-band Radio Frequency Sensor, or KuRFS radar, the systems provide essential detect and defeat capabilities in the defense against UASs. These proven capabilities are crucial components of the U.S. Army’s counter-UAS solution, LIDS - the Low, slow, small, unmanned aircraft Integrated Defeat System.
