The Department of Defense’s innovation office is looking for potential vendors of a system that can help protect military facilities against potential drone swarm attacks, FCW reported Sunday.

Specifically, the Defense Innovation Unit is interested in a platform that works to counter incoming unmanned aircraft threats through the use of directed energy or spectrum-based capabilities. DIU wants the system to also use radar, acoustic or optical signals as well as a database of drone models to detect threats, the report noted.

Interested vendors have until March 11 to submit written proposals.

The report added DIU will select and invite offerors to demonstrate proposed systems against targets as part of a week-long test.
