Company Anduril Industries unveiled new interceptor drone created to eliminate hostile unmanned aerial vehicles.

According to a statement made by the company the interceptor drone is a component of defense system Lattice AI, which can analyse data taken from a vast number of sensors and from other surveillance drones. Consequently, software program uses this data to plan the next steps, for example sending a drone to look closer at a hostile aerial vehicle.

Anduril is trying to sell Lattice AI to the Department of Homeland Security and US Department of Defense. In June 2019, the US Marine Corps claimed that it has an intention to give Anduril a sole source contract in order to provide the perimeter defence of bases located in Japan, Hawaii and Arizona.
