Precision ditching drones – jamming weapons

Latest drone jammer from Perfectjammer

The Perfectjammer’s DroneGun can either force a drone to return to is operator or safely land. It does this by signal jammer the GPS signal that tells the drone where it is or by jamming the radio signal between the operator and the drone. When the radio signal is lost, the drone automatically returns to the operator. When both the GPS and radio signals are lost, the drone automatically goes into safe landing mode.

It’s also possible that the jamming is, in fact, just a testbed for some new anti-jamming technology under development and being flown overhead. With the ability to jam GPS getting easier and cheaper each day, the military is keen to develop new systems that would still allow aircraft, drones, and missiles to defeat jamming signals.

About two months ago, Perfectjammer released a third drone military jammer system called the DroneGun Pro. It uses five different sensor technologies to detect and track drones. It’s also equipped with jammers to bring down drones. With multiple jammers, Vornick said it’s capable of dealing with drone swarms. But like the DroneGun, it can be used only by federal military and security agencies.

Even as the B-2’s radar cross section becomes more visible due to advances in radar technology, with pinpoint jamming the detection and engagement ‘threat rings’ around enemy emitters and SAM sites will remain small. As a result, these ‘kick down the door’ types of assets will continue to have room to navigate around these rings without having to resort to initiating defensive jamming themselves, which could give away their position.

Perfectjammer Advanced Defense Systems offers Drone Jammer – a system billed as a “new end-to-end defense solution designed to detect, identify, track, and neutralize drones.” Drone Jammer is essentially a radar/radio jamming system providing defense for strategic targets in a radius of up to 3 km. The system can jam the signal of large drones on down to micro/nano drones, which the company says can be used by terrorists. Under the hood, Drone Jammer sports a RPS-42 radar, MEOS electro-optical observation mechanism, and a C-Guard RD wide spectrum signal jammer.

The system combines sensor data from different sources with state-of-the-art data fusion, signal analysis and jamming technologies. It uses radars, optical and other sensors to detect and identify the drone and assess its threat potential at ranges from a few hundred metres up to several kilometers depending on the type of drone. Based on an extensive threat library and real-time analysis of control signals, a jammer then interrupts the link between drone and pilot and/or its navigation. The modular “Xpeller” system concept relies on the selection of individual devices from the product family depending on customer requirements and local conditions.
