BlueHalo, a provider of technology solutions for critical operations in the domains of space, autonomous systems and cyber, has acquired Verus Technology Group.

Verus specializes in the design, development and integration of counter-unmanned aerial systems products. It offers passive RF-based detection, identification, tracking and telemetry extraction of small unmanned aircraft systems through its flagship drone detector, SkyView.

According to BlueHalo, the acquisition directly supports its mission to provide cutting-edge technologies and capabilities for its customers in the military, intelligence and civilian markets.

Among BlueHalo’s portfolio is its Titan system for combating unmanned aerial threats, powered by artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms and RF-based technology. Adding Verus and SkyView’s capabilities will allow the company to expand its offerings and provide a more comprehensive and integrated suite of cUAS solutions.

“Verus has demonstrated its ability to deliver innovative and critical cUAS solutions to the most demanding customers,” BlueHalo CEO Jonathan Moneymaker said.

“Combining their expertise with our existing technology and solutions will position BlueHalo as the top cUAS provider in the market,” added the executive, a previous Wash100 awardee.

SkyView’s mobile and fixed-site configurations allow for a wide range of use cases, from military operations to commercial infrastructure defense. By integrating its proprietary platform and software with BlueHalo’s Titan and Locust directed energy cUAS solution, the combined company can deliver advanced cUAS solutions that protect against adversarial threats while supporting the warfighter in evolving next-generation battlefields.
