ANNAPOLIS JUNCTION, Md. ELTA North America has announced the final contractual delivery of its advanced counter-small unmanned aerial system (C-UAS) solution, the On-The-Move V4 (OTM V4) C-sUAS capability.
The OTM V4 was designed to address the Assistant Secretary of Defense Special Operations/Low-Intensity Conflict (ASD SO/LIC) Irregular Warfare Technical Support Directorate (IWTSD) Mobile C-sUAS Defense-in-Depth Capability.
Since December 2020, the company claims ELTA North America has delivered a total of five OTM V4 vehicle system integrations under the contract with IWTSD for use by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
The OTM V4 is a multi-sensor, multi-layered solution for early warning, detection, disruption, and defeat of various types of rotary and fixed-wing UAS and designed to operate while the vehicle is in motion. Officials claim it offers soft kill and hard kill mitigation options to deter threat drones with minimal to no collateral damage.
