What is AUDS (Anti-UAV Defence System)?

Glossary Definition

AUDS is an acronym for Anti-UAV Defense System and refers to a specific product that was released in 2015 by Blighter Surveillance Systems, Chess Dynamics, and Enterprise Control Systems. As it was one of the first commercially available C-UAS solutions, some incorrectly use it as a generic term for an anti-drone system rather than a specific product. AUDS is a product that falls under the category of C-UAS and anti-drone, but other solutions should not be referred to as AUDS.

Since 2015 there have been many advancements in UAVs and drones as well as the technology used to counter them. As an example, the AUDS uses RF jamming as its countermeasure, but this deterrent only works on drones that operate on the frequencies being jammed. Some drones fly using AI and therefore have no RF control frequency, thus they are completely immune to systems like AUDS that rely on jamming.

Infiniti custom builds C-UAS and anti-drone solutions based on the type of threat, application and mission objective for complete protection against airborne threats.
