The agreement vehicle enables government customers, including existing Anduril partners like the United States Marine Corps, to purchase Anduril’s family of Counter Unmanned Aircraft System (C-UAS) solutions at scale for force protection.

Anduril’s C-UAS solutions use its Lattice artificial intelligence (AI) operating system and a network of sensors to autonomously detect, classify, and track targets, alerting operators to threats and allowing options for mitigation or engagement. Through multiple combat assessments and competitive test events, Anduril’s system demonstrated its effectiveness against a variety of UAS threats, ranging from hobby drones to those flown by state actors, and in a variety of scenarios, including against multiple UAS threats simultaneously.

The Anduril C-UAS family of systems provides autonomous situational awareness and actionable, real-time intelligence derived from a fusion of multiple sensors. With edge-based processing, automated sensor exploitation, and multi-sensor fusion, Anduril’s products provide an autonomous, end-to-end C-UAS system that reduces cognitive burden on human operators. The Production Other Transaction Agreement is for up to $99 million over 5 years, enabling customers including the U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, U.S. Air Force, and U.S. Marine Corps to procure and sustain installation of Anduril’s C-UAS solutions, as well as various configurations of radar, electro-optics with infrared, interceptors, and radio frequency detection and defeat sensors.

Anduril Industries is a venture-backed defense technology company with the mission to transform U.S. and allied military capabilities with advanced technology. Anduril utilizes advancements including AI, computer vision, sensor fusion, optics and automation to radically transform U.S. defense capabilities and solve complex national security challenges.
