The Army’s Asymmetric Warfare Group and Unique Mission Cell held a field exercise at Fort A.P. Hill 5-9 November. Members of the 82nd Airborne Division from Fort Bragg evaluated Counter-Unmanned Aircraft System (C-UAS) technologies during three days and two nights of simulated combat operations. Missions were conducted in open terrain at a 2-kilometer long airfield, and in closed terrain at an urban training area. Drones that were used as simulated threats included fixed wing and quadcopter that U.S. troops currently face while deployed overseas. Soldiers evaluated C-UAS systems ranging from large multi-million dollar fielded equipment to the hand-held Ghoul Tool Full Spectrum (GTFS), the smallest system at the event. GTFS was utilized in the rain and through tree lines to defeat threat aircraft. When asked one of the event organizers commented “The Ghoul Tool was the only system that operated flawlessly every time, all the other systems functioned intermittently.”
