The results of these tests will help NATO identify optimal C-UAS architectures, common requirements, and technical interoperability standards to adopt going forward in support to the air security of Allied and Partner Nations.
Throughout the exercise, NCI Agency experts also deployed two in-house-developed prototypes: ARTEMIS* and DroIDs (Drone Identification System). These prototypes are essential tools that help NATO procure counter-drone capabilities, understand the technology being used in the market and support NATO's evolving airspace defence requirements.
The misuse of small and widely available drones has grown exponentially, representing a significant and growing risk to NATO's operations and defence activities. By constantly improving the interoperability of the counter-drone systems in use, Allies enhance their air defence and support the collective deterrence and defence of the Alliance.
