How can the ARC help you?
Counter drone systems are not without their challenges at the level of performance, practicality, legality and policy. A lack of common international standards in the counter drone (C-UAS) industry has resulted in a wide variance in the effectiveness and reliability of systems. The counter drone industry is still maturing as are many of the products currently on offer with many manufacturers, their agents and re-sellers will overstate the capabilities of their systems.
The ARC has subject matter expertise in the area of counter drone technology, understands the legislative implications, rigorous tests system performance, and challenges capability statements made by counter drone manufacturers. The ARC will ensure the system meets a client’s requirements, is fit for purpose, and within budget.
