ELTA North America announces the final contractual delivery of its advanced Counter Drone Solution, the On-The-Move V4 (OTM V4) C-sUAS solution.
The OTM V4 was designed to address the Assistant Secretary of Defense Special Operations / Low-Intensity Conflict (ASD SO/LIC) Irregular Warfare Technical Support Directorate (IWTSD) Mobile C-sUAS Defense-in-Depth Capability.
Since December 2020, ELTA North America has delivered a total of five OTM V4 vehicle system integrations under the contract with IWTSD for use by the U.S. Department of Defense and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
The OTM V4 is a multi-sensor, multi-layered solution for early warning, detection, disruption, and defeat of various types of rotary and fixed-wing UAS and designed to operate while the vehicle is in motion. It offers soft kill and hard kill mitigation options to deter threat drones with minimal to no collateral damage.
We are very pleased with the progress ELTA North America, D-FEND Solutions, and Smart Shooter has made on the spiral development and integration of the advanced Mobile C-sUAS Defense-In-Depth Capability. We look forward to continuing small tactical team operational testing and evaluations in a variety of scenarios and environments in FY 22.
Mike Trexler, IWTSD Tactical Offensive Support Program Manager
The OTM V4 is a truly innovative C-sUAS offering that we are proud to provide to our military forces and DHS security agents in the field. Its ability to provide increased standoff for the safety of troops will remain a critical priority as we continue to develop advanced defense technologies.
