Through autonomy, proprietary machine learning and artificial intelligence capabilities, Citadel Defense creates a force multiplier for Warfighters that enables them to get more done with the same or fewer resources. With the deployment of Citadel's technology, U.S. Special Operations Forces gain a modernized capability designed and developed to evolve with the pace of the growing threat.

Christopher Williams, Citadel Defense's Chief Executive Officer, said that "By working alongside the U.S. Government and hundreds of warfighters, we've fielded a capability that works today, at scale, and with minimal field support in the harshest operating environments. Through a close partnership with users, Citadel Defense delivers a drone protection solution for customers that is constantly improving, constantly incorporating user feedback, and constantly adapting to meet future threats and outpace our adversaries."

Citadel Defense has emerged as an industry leader in developing, deploying, and integrating innovative counter drone-solutions with its Titan product, providing fixed site, man-packable, and on-the-move protection that can effectively defeat drones without collateral effects on warfighter communications or certain proprietary technologies.
