Introducing VigilantHalo–BlueHalo’s Integrated Command and Control System for the Future of Uncrewed Airspace

The future of naAonal security will depend on our ability to command the nextgeneraAon of uncrewed airspace. To protect against tomorrow’s threats, BlueHalo has introduced VigilantHalo–a soMware-driven integraAon plaNorm for real-Ame airspace Command-and-Control (C2). VigilantHalo’s versaAle design supports mulAple missions including air traffic control (ATC), beyond visual line-of-sight (BVLOS), and Counter-Uncrewed Aerial Systems (C-UAS).

In addiAon to its naAonal security and NaAonal Airspace System (NAS) air traffic control capabiliAes, VigilantHalo is a complete situaAonal awareness soluAon for disaster response and criAcal infrastructure defense with radar and mulA-sensor surveillance that can be tailored to suit specific mission and applicaAon needs and deployed to cloud, mobile, or fixed-site installaAons.

“Drones are rapidly evolving our naAonal security landscape and will soon transform commerce, transportaAon, and many other elements of our daily lives,” said James Ba^, BlueHalo Chief Growth Officer.

“VigilantHalo is a criAcal tool for our government and industry partners to implement now in order to keep our airways and communiAes safe in the future.”

With VigilantHalo’s integrated data processing, fusion tracker, and communicaAons system, an operator can monitor and separate air traffic in any environment and receive criAcal internal and external system health management.

Informed by NaAonal Oceanic and Atmospheric AdministraAon (NOAA) mesoscale predicAons and weather staAons, the system provides weather-based flight path analyAcs services and idenAfies potenAal safety risks. It is powered by a custom-built state-of-the-art Sensor Data Processor (SDP) that fuses diverse sensor types and surveillance data feeds into a consolidated display tailored to the mission(s) of interest (e.g., ATC, BVLOS, Air Defense, BMC2, Missile Defense, etc.).

BlueHalo recently revealed VigilantHalo during a demonstraAon for various military leaders, state officials, and industry partners at Camp A^erbury in Edinburgh, Indiana. BlueHalo highlighted VigilantHalo’s BVLOS UAS mission controls, detect and avoid (DAA) capabiliAes, and non- 24PR0001 Page 2 of 2 cooperaAve or nefarious UAS and C-UAS detecAon and tracking. VigilantHalo was installed within a Nomad TacAcal Command Vehicle for the demonstraAon to showcase its mobility, ease of integraAon, and flexible applicaAon to address unique mission needs.

“Our customers are excited about this system because it fills a giant void for complete UAS and C-UAS airspace command and control,” said Mary Clum, BlueHalo Sector President.

“VigilantHalo is another example of how BlueHalo is meeAng the mission with technological innovaAon to support our warfighters.”

BlueHalo is purpose-built to transform the future of global defense, providing industry-leading capabilities in the areas of Space, C-UAS and Autonomous Systems, Cyber, and AI/ML. The company develops and brings to market next-generation capabilities to support customers’ critical missions and national security. visit: BlueHalo
