Modular Intercept Drone Avionics Set (MIDAS)
MIDAS is Aurora’s AI-enabled, multi-rotor sUAV outfitted with optical sensors and a customized payload that can defeat multiple small UAVs per flight with low-collateral effects.
Autonomous from launch through landing
Cued by radar; optical sensor guides to target
Precise aiming independent of flight direction
Low system cost and low cost per kill
Ground radar interoperability and future proof AI algorithms
Aurora’s multi-rotor sUAV also offers an open architecture for payload integration. Its quick-change modular rails and onboard computer support variable payloads, providing flexibility for evolving threats and alternate use-cases.
