Rafael Systems Global Sustainment to Test DRONE DOME C-UAS System at Atlantic City International Airport

Rafael Systems Global Sustainment (RSGS), a subsidiary of RAFAEL, has been awarded an Other Transaction Agreement by the Federal Aviation Administration to test the capabilities of the DRONE DOME system at the Atlantic City International Airport (KACY). The DRONE DOME system is a counter-Unmanned Aerial System (C-UAS), drone detection, neutralization, and interception system. The objective of the research effort is to ensure that technologies and systems developed to detect and mitigate potential risks posed by errant or hostile UAS operations do not adversely impact or interfere with safe airport operations, navigation, air traffic services, or the safe and efficient operation of the National Airspace System.

Testing of the DRONE DOME system will initially take place at KACY and will involve research, testing, and evaluations. The testing process will span several months, followed by performance validation at other airports in the United States. The DRONE DOME system successfully demonstrated its C-UAS capabilities, which included accurate detection, identification, and soft-kill capabilities against a variety of drone targets. As a result, it was named and recommended for C-sUAS As A Service (CaaS) by the U.S. Department of Defense’s (DoD) Joint Counter-small Unmanned Aircraft Systems Office (JCO) in November 2022.

DRONE DOME is a combat-proven counter-Unmanned Aerial System (C-UAS) that provides all-weather, 360-degree rapid defense against hostile drones. The system offers a modular, robust infrastructure comprised of electronic jammers and sensors and unique artificial intelligence algorithms to effectively secure threatened air space. With its successful testing at KACY and recommendation for CaaS, DRONE DOME is now eligible to compete for future CaaS contract opportunities.
