Hex Horus, C-UAS

Counter-Unmanned Aerial Systems

Our Mission Statement

Provide NATO, Government Entities, and Civil Authorities with world class Counter-Unmanned Aerial Systems (CUAS) Consultancy, Strategic Support, Operational Framework, and Sustainable Training Packages in order to protect personnel, critical infrastructure, sensitive property, and to enhance military or civil operations anywhere in the world.


Across the world, there has been a delicate shift in "Air Superiority." What were once relatively uncontested in many sectors, both airspace and the Electro-Magnetic Spectrum (EMS) are heavily congested & aggressively contested by those with malicious, criminal and hostile intent; the mass proliferation and utilization of commercial off the shelf drones which are readily available, cheap, simple to use are the catalyst to this shift in "Air Superiority."



Military, government & police bases are susceptible to drone incursion, hostile surveillance and overhead attack by criminal and terrorist organizations.


Drones are posing serious risks to life at airports, breaching airspace restrictions and disrupting airport operations.


Criminals are using drones to smuggle drugs, phones & weapons into prisons undetected by current security measures.

Critical Infrastructure

Drones present a serious, viable and credible threat to critical and sensitive infrastructure across the world which are now susceptible to Drone incursions, sabotage & attack.

We believe in challenging the status quo and thinking about Drones and Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS). Almost daily there are new innovations and technological advances in the drone industry, most of which are applied with good intentions. Some however, are used for insidious, malicious ends and even acts of terrorism. For this reason we founded Hex Horus LTD Counter-Unmanned Aerial Systems (CUAS); to make the world a safer place.


The way in which we challenge the status quo is by looking at the holistic approach to CUAS and the mass integration of drones in life and the subsequent impact on the key economic and security sectors. We are a learning organization who actively seek collaboration and critical feedback amongst professional bodies, organizations and societies throughout the world.


As a result, we provide world class Counter Unmanned Aerial Systems Consultancy, Operations, Resourcing and Training. Delivered to you by an experienced cohort of Military Veterans including Ex-Special Forces in order to deliver the most effective Counter Unmanned Aerial System layered defense to our clients.

Veteran's Promise

The Armed Forces Covenant is a promise by the nation ensuring that those who serve or who have served in the armed forces, and their families, are treated fairly.


The Veterans Network is designed to be a platform that enables fellow Veterans to collaborate with each other over a stable, online platform. The Veterans Forum is a place for ex-forces personnel to communicate amongst themselves about anything that's on their mind. Veterans can share past experiences, seek new ones and network with others if they have their own business.


Veteran Owned UK was set up by a former British Army Royal Engineer to help support ex-military business owners.

We noticed that supporting Veteran Owned Businesses has been very popular in the USA, but has very little presence in the UK. We wanted to change this so we started the first and original Veteran Owned Business Directory for the UK.

We have an active Social Media scene which all help to move traffic here to the website. Please have a good look around, and let us know what you think.
