DroneShield Limited is pleased to advise it has reached compliance with UK Ministry of Defence (UK MOD) SAPIENT format. SAPIENT is a common operating format for defense devices (with similar principles to the US Department of Defense ATAK system), originally developed by the UK’s Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL). It was since adopted as the standard counter-drone communication system in the UK.
SAPIENT offers a standard approach for AI and autonomy in networked multi-sensor systems in security and defense, and is being evaluated as a potential NATO standard for counter-drone systems.
Additional information on SAPIENT is available at https://www.gov.uk/guidance/sapient-autonomous-sensor-system
Going forward, DroneShield’s AI-enabled counterdrone/C-UAS RfPatrol, RfOne, and DroneSentry-X products now have the capability to provide a SAPIENT compliant output.
