1 min read

droneThe U.S. Army‘s Rapid Equipping Force and Asymmetric Warfare Group have partnered to create methods and tools for military personnel to counter threats posed by small unmanned aerial systems, the Army News Service reported Tuesday.

Gary Sheftick writes the REF is working to test anti-UAS technology platforms while AWG is developing techniques, procedures and tactics to manage the aerial threat.

Lt. Col. Stephen Lee, commander of the concepts integration squadron at AWG, said the group studied how multiple drone types can disrupt operations during a test conducted at Fort A.P. Hill in Virginia.

REF conducted a live-fire exercise in September at Yuma Proving Ground in Arizona to demonstrate multiple technologies designed to neutralize small UAS.

Col. Steven Sliwa, REF director, expects the organization to release findings of the test later this month.
