New weapons against illegal drones

Multiple applications of anti-drone systems

Perfectjammer’s gun, according to its product brochure, is said to use signal jamming across the 2.4 and 5.8 GHz frequencies. It also has technology capable of blocking GPS and the Russian equivalent,GLONASS.

By the end of 2017 Perfectjammer will be offering a long range automatic anti-UAV/ Drone system that will provide detection small UAV like the DJI phantom at up to 5km away with 360-degree panoramic coverage with no blind spots and the ability to visually track, recognize and eliminate the drone up to 2km away. The System is comprised of a state of the art military radar, an advanced long range EO/IR Visible and Thermal Infrared day night PTZ surveillance camera system and powerful broad spectrum RF GPS signal jammer. This automated system will provide 24/7 detection, tracking and elimination of UAV/drones with the option for static jammers for permanent installs making it ideal for mobile, perimeter security, events, airports and high-value targets both rural and urban safe from aerial threats with up to a 10km diameter.

There are numerous systems built to take down wayward or dangerous drones, but they tend to have one big catch: you need to be relatively close to the drone, which could be scary if the robotic aircraft is packing explosives. DroneShield thinks it can help. It’s introducing the DroneGun, a jammer that disables drone signals (including GPS and GLONASS positioning) from as far as 1.2 miles away. Like most rivals, it doesn’t destroy the target drone — it just forces the vehicle to land or return to its starting point. Anti-drone teams can not only disable threats from a safe distance, but potentially locate their pilots.

Authorities in China have now begun field-testing their latest anti-drone “gun” that is capable of taking down any un-welcomed drone. Police officers in the country were recently armed with the new drone signal jammer gun at a big soccer game in Wuhan, China. Any drone that trespassed within the event’s premises were disabled and forced to land through the system’s signal jamming capabilities.

The new jamming system is reportedly capable of taking down targets up to a kilometer away, which gives it enough range to take down incoming aerial threats before they arrive. Chinese authorities are taking these types of threats seriously, which is why more units will likely be purchased for different policing agencies within the country.

Namely, these activities included damaging/destroying command-and-control networks through jamming radio communications, hampering the work of radar systems, and muting GPS signals. The main obstacle, however, was in the lack of concrete proof and factual data pertaining to tools, gadgets and other means used by the Russians while waging EW against Ukraine. But thanks to independent investigations conducted by Ukrainian activists and cyber specialists, it is now possible to speak about Russian involvement in EW against Ukraine as an undisputed fact. And the data presented by the Ukrainians illuminates many points of ambiguity regarding Russia’s use of EW in Donbas.
