What is UAS and C-UAS ?

A UAS is an Unmanned Air System. C-UAS stands for Counter Unmanned Air Systems. Different organizations, agencies and manufacturers often use different terms interchangeably, but for consistency we will use the FAA definitions found in the FAA's Pilot / Controllers Glossary.

• Unmanned aircraft – an “aircraft operated without the possibility of direct human intervention from within or on the aircraft.”

• Small unmanned aircraft – an “aircraft weighing less than 55 pounds on takeoff, including everything that is on board or otherwise attached to the aircraft.”

• Small unmanned aircraft system – a “small unmanned aircraft and its associated elements (including communication links and the components that control the small unmanned aircraft) that are required for the safe and efficient operation of the small unmanned aircraft in the national airspace system.”

It is useful to think of a UAS in terms of its two major components: 1) the aircraft, also called an unmanned aircraft vehicle (UAV), and 2) a ground-based control station (GCS), which controls the UAV’s flight. Counter-Unmanned Aircraft Systems. A sophisticated single, or combination, of systems designed to detect, track, identify and/or mitigate small UAS, perceived as a threat.

ADDS Automatic Drone Defense System
By the end of 2021 Infiniti will be offering a long range automatic anti-UAV/ Drone system that will provide detection small UAV like the DJI phantom at up to 5km away with 360-degree panoramic coverage with no blind spots and the ability to visually track, recognize and eliminate the drone up to 2km away. The System is comprised of a state of the art military radar, an advanced long range EO/IR Visible and Thermal Infrared day night PTZ surveillance camera system and powerful broad spectrum RF jammer. This automated system will provide 24/7 detection, tracking and elimination of UAV/drones with the option for static jammers for permanent installs making it ideal for mobile, perimeter security, events, airports and high-value targets both rural and urban safe from aerial threats with up to a 10km diameter.

Infiniti Electro-Optics combines the most advanced infrared electro-optics and video surveillance technologies to create customized solutions for high-end surveillance, perimeter defense, and 24/7 threat detection. We work with MWIR & LWIR thermal infrared imaging, ZLID laser illumination, SWIR, HD long-range visible and NIR imaging, gyro stabilization, radar integration, and more.
