Epirus, a high-growth know-how firm growing directed vitality techniques that allow unprecedented counter-electronics results and Normal Dynamics Land Methods (GD), a worldwide chief in offering progressive, excessive know-how and next-generation floor fight options to prospects around the globe introduced as we speak the introduction of Stryker Leonidas. Developed in underneath a 12 months, Stryker Leonidas was lately area demonstrated at a U.S. authorities testing web site efficiently disabling particular person drone targets and swarms of drones. The combination of Leonidas, the world’s strongest HPM phased array, with Stryker, the U.S. Military’s largest and most dependable fight automobile fleet brings counter-electronics capabilities to the frontlines – offering a confirmed and cost-effective layered protection resolution for the maneuver drive.

“Including Leonidas’ counter-electronics capabilities to the Stryker fight automobile offers the joint drive with unmatched cellular safety from the constantly evolving risk of weaponized drones. Because the Military’s largest fight automobile fleet, Stryker is combat-proven, cost-effective, extremely cellular, versatile, sustainable and portable and continues to be a extremely sought platform past the Stryker Brigade Fight Workforce formations,” stated Gordon Stein, Vice President of U.S. Operations at Normal Dynamics Land Methods.


“The combination of Epirus’ Leonidas system with Normal Dynamics Land System’s Stryker automobile offers the U.S. Military a cheap, maneuverable and examined protection functionality in opposition to present and rising threats to the warfighter. Epirus’ tradition of innovation and GD’s decades-long monitor file of delivering cutting-edge options will solely proceed as we work collectively to develop additional capabilities,” stated Leigh Madden, Chief Government Officer of Epirus.

After signing a strategic teaming settlement in October 2021, the businesses have efficiently built-in Epirus’ high-power microwave array with the Stryker floor fight automobile and can unveil the built-in system on the Affiliation of the U.S. Military’s (AUSA) Annual Assembly & Exposition in Washington, D.C. Leonidas’ counter-swarm effectiveness fills a urgent quick vary air protection (SHORAD) functionality hole for the joint drive as the specter of swarming drones continues to hazard troops and civilians abroad and within the homeland. The continued evolution of adversaries’ swarming drone capabilities is matched by Epirus’ software-weaponeering capabilities, which permits the system to repeatedly consumption new information, quickly replace its subtle waveforms and increase its journal depth for enhanced SHORAD mission assurance throughout all domains. With its open structure, Leonidas can combine with a variety of Command-and-Management (C2) platforms to detect, monitor and defeat the rising deployment of drone know-how by adversaries and non-state actors.

Stryker Leonidas is the most recent version to Epirus’ suite of HPM techniques – together with the corporate’s ground-based Leonidas system for surface-to-air protection and Leonidas Pod, a first-of-its type, cellular and compact HPM system. When deployed in tandem, the Leonidas household of merchandise create a layered counter-swarm and counter-electronics area of safety. Epirus can also be actively exploring future capabilities to defend in opposition to next-generation threats. Land Methods is a enterprise unit of Normal Dynamics (NYSE: GD). Land Methods offers progressive design, engineering, know-how, manufacturing, fielding and full life-cycle assist for land fight automobiles across the globe.
