Black Sage solution neutralises drone threat in Middle East

X Wing EO IR and Jammer Without BracketsAn illegal drone was detected and neutralised at a major public event in the Middle East by a Black Sage mobile counter unmanned aircraft solution (CUAS) featuring Black Sage’s DefenseOS command and control software

Due to the rapid response by the local civil defence authority, no one attending the event was injured. The event continued without disruption. The safety and security of all those attending the event was assured by the civil defence authority and the Black Sage CUAS solution.

“Black Sage is proud to work with our partners across the Middle East to protect their citizens and visitors at major public events,” said Trent Morrow, Black Sage’s chief strategy officer. “Our Counter UAS solutions are deployed with civil defence authorities, militaries and airports worldwide defending people and critical infrastructure.”

Drones pose an increasing threat at major public events worldwide. The number of illegal drones entering the airspace above and near public events is accelerating. 

Black Sage is a Systems Integration Partner (SIP). Black Sage’s DefenseOS open architecture command and control software orchestrates a layered defence network comprising radars, EO/IR cameras, Passive RF sensors and effectors. DefenseOS features an operator-friendly interface and solution automation to reduce operator burden.
