Allen Control Systems selected as the only kinetic defeat solution to participate in premier defense technology event

AUSTIN, Texas: Allen Control Systems (ACS), a defense technology company developing counter-drone robotic gun systems, today announced that it has been invited to participate in the U.S. Defense Department’s Technology Readiness Experimentation 2024 (T-REX 24-2), the premier event for assessing and fast-tracking new technologies that the DoD considers critical for warfighting efforts.

Low cost, lethal, and increasingly autonomous drones are being deployed in large numbers by enemy forces around the world. Recent advances in drone technology have made them more resilient to radio frequency (RF) jamming technology which enables them to complete deadly missions. The only reliable way to disable autonomous enemy drones is through kinetic defeat solutions that physically damage or destroy them. Until now, this required expensive missiles. ACS will demonstrate a new, highly accurate, cost-effective kinetic defeat solution at T-REX 24-2.

ACS’s Bullfrog™ robotic gun system brings together cutting-edge software, computer vision and artificial intelligence (AI) with the M240 machine gun to neutralize large numbers of lethal drones at higher effectiveness and much lower cost than any solution available today.

“Bullfrog is a step change in capability,” said Steven Simoni, co-founder and CEO of ACS. “As the only kinetic defeat solution at T-REX 24-2, we’re looking forward to demonstrating how our counter-drone robotic gun system addresses the threat from low-flying, cheap drones that have changed the battlefield.”

T-REX 24-2, hosted by the DoD and the Indiana National Guard, is a critical demonstration and evaluation platform for advanced military technologies. T-REX 24-2, happening from Aug. 19 to 26 at Camp Atterbury, Ind., is a component of the DoD’s Rapid Defense Experimentation Reserve (RDER), a process to incentivize experimentation of military technologies and accelerate the path from concept to the field.
