To counter the different adversaries faced by the US military, the DoD has allocated $404 million for C-UAS research and development. Another $83 million is allocated for C-UAS procurement for the 2021 fiscal year too. The budget includes the purchase of counter-unmanned aircraft system (C-UAS) technologies for US military and defense entities. The said C-UAS technologies would be provided by Xtend, an Israeli startup. Up to date, the company has already delivered its Skylord Griffon counter-drone interception systems, which can become weapons of destruction.
