Russia’s Rosoboronexport will demo its Repellent-Patrol EW system at IDEX 2021 that is capable of jamming malicious drones from up to 20 km away.

The EW complex designed to destroy small-sized UAVs. It is available in both mobile and stationary versions. Features include detection and tracking of UAVs; UAV signal parameters tracking; electronic suppression of UAVs data transmission and control channels and ground control stations; UAV satellite navigation receiver jamming; and more.

In December, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan criticised an anti-drone system, presumed to be Repellent, stating that “it simply did not work” against Turkish and Israeli drones.

Other anti-drone systems to be showcased at the event include Kupol and Rubezh-Avtomatika systems developed by Avtomatika Concern. These carry out continuous radio surveillance and create a protective dome over the installation. This is an impenetrable barrier capable of repelling attacks not only by single drones, but also their massive use from different directions and altitudes within a radius of at least 3 km.

The Pishchal electromagnetic gun is one of the lightest handheld jammers on the market, weighing a mere about 3.5 kg. It can jam UAV control/navigation channels at a range of 2 km.

KBP’s Pantsir-S1M self-propelled anti-aircraft gun/missile (SPAAGM) system; Almaz-Antey’s Tor-type SAM system; Verba or Igla-S MANPADS; as well as Gibka-S MANPADS squad combat vehicles, capable of firing Verba or Igla-S MANPADS will be on display. These MANPADS can destroy targets at a maximum range of 6 km and at a maximum altitude of 3.5 km.
