Zala Aero, a Kalashnikov Group subsidiary, has demonstrated a satellite navigation signal suppression for for drones at the Interpolytex-2018 security exhibition in Moscow.
"The compact module is placed under an unmanned aerial vehicle’s wing and suppresses signals of satellite navigation systems within a radius of up to 5km, and also blocks the operation of all devices that use satellite navigational systems for navigation," a Kalashnikov statement said.
The satellite navigation signal suppressing system has been developed for special operations forces. The system can be used to neutralize an enemy’s equipment that may pose a threat to defended facilities.
The new system will expand the range of electronic warfare devices developed by ZALA. It comprises the REX-1 anti-drone rifle and the ZONT man-portable device. The new satellite navigation signal suppressing system has undergone successful trials and proven its efficiency.
