SCEPTRE Counter-UAS System

SCEPTRE is the U.S. Armys counter-UAS system that detects, tracks, classifies,
identifies and engages hostile UAS.


A r my A M R D E

The U.S. Army has partnered with SRC, Inc. to develop capabilities for a complete, end-to-end
counter-unmanned aircraft system (UAS) solution know as SCEPTRE. This system combines
radar, electronic warfare (EW), camera and lethal miniature aerial munitions systems (LMAMS) to
provide forces with a diverse suite of detection, identification and negation capabilities. SCEPTRE
is designed for deployment below the brigade level in network-denied environments.



SCEPTRE employs two U.S. Army Programs of Record for UAS detection the AN/TPQ-50
with LSTAR air surveillance software installed and the AN/ULQ-35 Counter Remote Controlled
Improvised Explosive Device (RCIED) Electronic Warfare (CREW) Duke system. These systems
scan the airspace for low, slow and small airborne targets, collecting information such as 3-D

location, radio frequency signature, and more.

Together, these systems accurately detect, track
and identify hostile UAS for making effective
decisions regarding threats.

The combination of radar signature data and

electronic surveillance information is sufficient
for positive identification of UAS targets.
Identification can then be further enhanced
through the use of an electro-optical/infrared
(EO/IR) camera for visual identification. With the
visual identification being made, the operator
can confidently decide on which, if any, actions
must be taken against the threat.

AN/TPQ-50 counterfire radar with LSTAR air

surveillance software
AN/ULQ-35 CREW Duke EW system
EO/IR camera

Detects, tracks, identifies and engages
hostile UAS
Non-kinetically negates UAS with EW
Provides kinetic C-UAS option for
layered defense
Proven subsystems with a technology
readiness level of 8/9



Once a UAS has been identified as hostile, the

operator has the option of engaging it with the
AN/ULQ-35 CREW Duke EW system or LMAMS.

Minimal procurement and training costs

Can be quickly brought to theatre
Low risk of collateral damage or fratricide
from surgical, non-kinetic engagements
Very low cost per electronic engagement

The non-kinetic defeat capabilities of the AN/

ULQ-35 CREW Duke system provide a lowcost, low-risk initial layer of defense. The
operator can use the AN/ULQ-35 CREW
Duke system to perform electronic attack and
electronic surveillance techniques that jam or
spoof the command guidance or sensor data
links of the UAS. This is the preferred approach
when engaging with UAS swarms, since
jamming of the RF band can defeat multiple
targets simultaneously.
If electronic methods are insufficient, the operator
can cue the LMAMS for a kinetic attack.
