The U.S. Navy recently installed the first Optical Dazzling Interdictor, Navy (ODIN) counter-unmanned aerial system (C-UAS) laser weapon system on the Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Dewey.
The system was installed on USS Dewey during her recently completed Dry-Docking Selected Restricted Availability (SRA).
ODIN’s development, testing and production was done by Navy subject matter experts at Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) Dahlgren Division, Virginia, in support of Program Executive Office Integrated Warfare Systems (PEO IWS). Their work on the laser weapon system known as LaWS, positioned them to be designated as the design and production agent for ODIN.
Scheduled assignment to an industrial activity for the purpose of accomplishing repairs or performing maintenance.
A smart-sensor and effector package capable of remotely detecting, tracking and classifying UAS before providing the option to disrupt their activity.
C-UAS not only works to cover your airspace, but also as a ground surveillance system as well.
