Raytheon has collaborated with Black Sage to develop a unified drone tracking and prevention tool that can be utilized in both urban settings and military operations.

Black Sage will install artificial intelligence technology, radio frequency jammers and sensor systems into Raytheon's Windshear command and control platform to help users trace, override and control foreign drones, Raytheon said Tuesday.

“As we saw at Gatwick and Heathrow airports, drones operating inside commercial air corridors are posing a real challenge,” said Todd Probert, vice president of Raytheon’s intelligence, information and services business.

“And though Raytheon has developed a range of counter-drone systems, from missiles to lasers to high-powered microwaves, authorities also need a system that can safely stop and land a drone where it may not be safe to shoot them down,” Probert added.

Black Sage is an Idaho-based defense technology provider that offers machine intelligence, counter-drone and sensor systems for government customers.
