Lockheed said Monday Icarus operates defensively and combines electronic warfare, cybersecurity, sensor and nonkinetic technology or techniques.

According to Deon Viergutz, vice president of cyber solutions at Lockheed Martin, the UAS threat emerged from the increased weaponization of commercially available UAS and their use in surveillance operations.
