According to a statement by EOS, the C-UAS system was modelled from the company’s R-series remote weapon system with additional enhanced command and control, sensing and combat capabilities.

It is expected that the system will be able to detect, monitor and engage a number of drones that using “swarming” tactics to attack the C-UAS from numerous directions. The C-UAS is able to engage with drones using both kinetic and non-kinetic weapons, including direct fire and electronic warfare systems, and is optimised with an array of radar, radio detection and thermal imaging sensors to identify the drones. 

The C-UAS’s can be integrated with an array of kinetic weapons systems including the Dillon Aero M134 minigun, which employs 7.62mm round, the Northrup Grumman M230LF 30mm or Mk44 II Bushmaster chain gun. Meanwhile, the UK’s Blighter or Israel’s RADA electronic warfare integrations can be integrated into the C-UAS platform according to client needs.

At the launch of the Titanis at Land Forces, vice president of business development at EOS Defence Systems Justin Olde outlined that the C-UAS measure is an effective piece of infrastructure against the continuing threat of UAS’.

“Titanis represents EOS’ leadership in integrated counter unmanned aerial systems technology. Building on decades of stabilised weapon and laser system development, EOS is excited to publicly release Titanis and its integrated C4ISREW backbone. This includes our 35kW directed energy system, which is an essential part of the system’s ability to defeat drone swarms. Titanis is the most flexible and cost effective response to this emerging asymmetric threat,” Olde said.
