MBDA launches Sky Warden C-UAS system

MBDA, a world leader in air defence solutions, is launching Sky Warden – the new flagship system to
counter unmanned aerial systems (C-UAS). The Sky Warden system manages the full C-UAS kill chain from detection to neutralisation and is designed to operate both as an integrated component in a layered air defence architecture, or in a stand-alone configuration.

Eric Béranger, CEO of MBDA, said: “As Europe’s leading air defence provider, MBDA is uniquely able
to offer customers a proven, flexible and integrated C-UAS system. One that is available today, and
can evolve into the future. Sky Warden embodies MBDA’s deep knowledge of the engagement
process, systems integration, of all categories of effectors and their next evolutions, and of effects
management in the air defence domain.

Lucas Le Bell, CEO & Co-founder of CERBAIR, stated : “Congratulations to MBDA and the rest of the Sky Warden team for this great achievement! This program is the ambitious and holistic answer from the leading European missile company against the drone threat. Basically, it is a Command and Control System (C2) that aggregates the best in class of European counter drone technologies into a unified system able to deal efficiently with a wide range of drones from NATO class 1 up to large tactical UAVs. Facing a constantly changing threat, technologies will come and go, but a proper C2 will always stay relevant. Interestingly enough, team Sky Warden integrates leading Directed Energy Weapons (High Energy Laser and High Power Microwave) that will certainly become paramount as drones become more autonomous, which will require physical neutralization technologies able to quickly deal with swarms. Trying to democratize a cost efficient first line of defense to this asymmetrical threat, CERBAIR is proud to be part of this initiative that allows us to scale our solutions to higher demanding customers as part of a bigger whole.”
