ARLINGTON COUNTY, Va. CACI International Inc (CACI) announced that the Army’s Joint Counter-Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems office (C-sUAS) Office (JCO) has selected its CORIAN system to protect Department of Defense (DoD) personnel and facilities against threats from unmanned aircraft systems/drones

DoD designated the Army JCO as the executive agent for C-sUAS to identify and prioritize shared gaps in technology and plans, and to work with industry to discern emerging technologies, address challenges, increase efficiencies, and promote competition in future technology development and procurement activities.

Out of the 40+ systems under consideration, DoD leadership selected CORIAN as one of three fixed/semi-fixed systems approved for use by the Department. The DoD’s criteria for selecting systems for current use and future research and testing included system effectiveness, usability, sustainment, and integration.

CORIAN is designed to be a modular, scalable mission technology system intended to detect, identify, track, and mitigate UAS threats using precision-neutralization techniques that ensure little to no collateral damage to the surrounding radio frequency (RF) spectrum and existing communications. CORIAN combines 1-3 drone detection and mitigation ranges with DoD’s C-sUAS signal library to keep pace with the growing and ever-changing threat.
