Leading the Digital Warzone

Leading the Digital Warzone

SNC brings 60 years of experience in developing solutions, integrating capabilities and engineering systems that reduce warfighter casualties during combat and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) missions. As a leader in unmanned systems, we invest significantly in emerging technologies including open architectures, artificial intelligence (AI), electronic warfare (EW) and platform integration. Our digital-first approach increases autonomy and capability across all military UxS, including UAV, unmanned ground vehicles (UGV) and unmanned surface vehicles (USV).

We possess a robust portfolio of intellectual property that positions us at the forefront of the UxS technologies marketplace and as a world-class aviation, ISR and unmanned integrator. SNC’s specialized capabilities and products provide customers with a comprehensive set of UxS control technology, offering manned-unmanned teaming and national air space de-confliction. This includes our SNC TRAX®-enabled communications, integrated RF solutions, C5ISR/EW modular open suite of standards (CMOSS) and modular open systems approach (MOSA)-compliant architectures, predictive analytics and AI/ML technologies.
