ASHBURN, Va.- Verus Technology Group Inc. (VERUS), today announced that it received its first individual multi-million-dollar purchase order from U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) for its next-generation SkyView-MP Counter Unmanned Aircraft System (CUAS). VERUS is honored to have SkyView selected by USSOCOM to provide essential UAS detection capabilities to mitigate the threats posed by small unmanned aircraft systems. VERUS has delivered a small number of its SkyView-MP V2 systems to other customers and has already started shipments for this significant order.
SkyView CUAS systems provide operators with long-range detection and tracking of small unmanned aircraft systems (e.g. drones). VERUS's technology has been independently tested and validated at military test ranges around the world in both urban and non-urban environments. The first production unit was delivered in 2017 and since then, more than 60 SkyView systems have been purchased and deployed globally by multiple U.S. Government entities.
