GM Defense and Black Sage Technologies announced a teaming agreement to explore the development of a Counter Unmanned Aerial System (C-UAS) solution for use on GM Defense military vehicles provided to global defense and government customers at Canadian Association of Defence and Security Industries (CANSEC) 2023. The two companies will collaborate on the research, development and market viability of a C-UAS solution, on properties such as the Infantry Squad Vehicle (ISV).

While at CANSEC 2023, GM Defense will showcase a four-seat ISV Multi-Mission and Logistics vehicle equipped with Black Sage’s SawtoothTM C-UAS, featuring open architecture software and hardware platforms that deliver data fusion, automated target recognition, threat evaluation, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance functionality. Additionally, the C-UAS solution offers kinetic and non-kinetic effectors that utilize Black Sage’s groundbreaking Command and Control System, DefenseOS.

“We understand how critical optionality is for our customers, who look for ways to outmaneuver increasingly complex threats from around the globe,” said Steve duMont, GM Defense president. “Our teaming agreement with Black Sage helps us offer greater flexibility to warfighters while continuing to develop mobility solutions that perform in diverse environments. This collaboration enables GM Defense and Black Sage to leverage the synergies of our respective companies, extend battlefield capabilities and showcase solutions that can drive mission readiness.”

“We are excited to partner with GM Defense to advance our On-the-Move C-UAS solution. GM Defense's expertise in vehicle design and manufacturing, combined with our experience in C-UAS technology, will allow us to deliver a solution that is both effective and reliable,” said Ann Wood, Black Sage president. “This agreement is a significant milestone in our efforts to provide our customers with the best possible protection against the growing threat of unmanned aerial systems.”
