SCG's counter-drone system DroneRANGER won the Countering Drone Challenge, in the categories Best Detection and Determination System as well as Best End-to-End System.
VanCleve & Associates, the SCG's US-representative was awarded the prize money of USD 80'000.
Despite that drones were flown by autopilot (GPS) and a GPS jamming interdiction due to US FCC rules, DroneRANGER reached the best over-all performance.
Among the initial 42 applicants and competing finalists was the prestigious American defense company Lockheed Martin.
