The lower cost of conducting ISR [intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance] and attack operations with uncrewed aerial systems (UASs) has been changing the warfare scenario. Cutting-edge technologies and advanced ammunition in a layered approach can provide more effective means to detect, track, classify, and engage this type of aerial target.
The proliferation of new, more lethal threats and the need for improved situational awareness in the electromagnetic spectrum fuel more sophisticated radio frequency (RF) and microwave designs. Meanwhile, open architecture efforts are enabling faster adoption of techbnlogy and lowering long-term costs.
