xtend™ Griffon

drone systems

A Counter-UAS system that enables any operator with zero flight experience to kinetically intercept aerial threats using a resilient ultra-fast drone system. Serving as a human extension, the system utilizes sophisticated VR and sensor fusion technology, allowing operators to perform vision-assisted, semi-automated interceptions and control a drone team that automatically launches when detecting aerial threats.

compatible with any detection and c2 systems

Designed as a wearable, mobile, lightweight system with a single-hand, natural hand gestures-based controller, the Griffon allows the operator to conduct an interception process via expendable, disposable physical effectors that detach upon interception impact. The Griffon system efficiently interfaces with both Detection and Command & Control systems to seamlessly integrate into a single Detection → Interception System.

smart hard kill, modular effectors

The Griffon is designed to defeat Group 1/2 COTS UAS and RCMA in ranges of up to 3 miles from the launch point. It flies up to 80mph and uses a single-use effector to intercept the target drone within seconds of recognition. Configured and optimized for multi-rotor interception, it supports a modular architecture and will also be able to eliminate fixed-wing elements with a dedicated effector.
