Citadel Defense Builds Upon Industry-Leading Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning Technology to Take Down Nefarious Drones

As adversaries look for ways to spoof counter unmanned aerial systems (C-UAS), Citadel responds with unparalleled speed and agility

San Diego, CA – Citadel Defense, a proven innovator in full spectrum counter drone solutions, has released new software incorporating deepfake neural networks to defend against adversarial spoofing tactics.  This capability helps U.S. and allied forces combat growing enemy tactics that attempt to confuse existing and security intelligence equipment as spectrum superiority becomes more important.
Citadel was the first company to use artificial intelligence and machine learning to counter unmanned system threats.  The company has now taken a quantum leap forward by using Generative Adversarial Networks in their Titan C-UAS solution.
Christopher Williams, CEO of Citadel Defense explains, “Just like anti-virus programs have methods to detect software exploits, Titan has automated methods that proactively defend against spoofing exploits. Adding new deep learning capabilities to Titan helps blind the drone-equipped enemy and deny them any advantage or safe haven in contested and complex radio frequency environments.”
Using proprietary image generation algorithms, Citadel has developed discrimination classification models that help determine whether the signal detected is a real drone or a generated signal by the adversary trying to trick existing signal intelligence equipment.
All too frequently, technology providers are promising support for “some” new drone threats in a release that is “launching soon”. When your customers face genuine threats to safety, “Some is not a number and soon is not a time,” says Williams.  “Offering the most comprehensive threat protection against group I and II threats with near real-time responsiveness has been our company’s priority from the beginning.”
As the use of drones and surface-based robotic platforms proliferate on the battlefield, Citadel is rapidly equipping militaries and governments with the most cutting-edge capabilities to stay ahead of the weaponized drone threat. 
In the last three months, Citadel has trained over 500 military and law enforcement operators on emerging adversarial threat tactics and Titan technology.  Over 100 Titan systems are being updated with the company’s latest software release.

Citadel Defense is a counter-drone (C-UAS) technology company that builds industry-leading drone mitigation solutions for military, homeland security and commercial applications. Citadel technology is trusted by commercial, Government, international and military users including, U.S. Special Forces, Army, Navy, Air Force, Department of Homeland Security, Border Patrol, and Coast Guard.
