MyDefence Communication has integrated Counter Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) technology in vehicle platforms for military forces.

The integration of the drone sensors allows military operators to effectively detect and defeat enemy drones used for reconnaissance or as weapon delivery systems, the company said in a statement Monday.

The company has developed advanced, networked radio-frequency (RF) sensors, and has worked closely with General Dynamics Land Systems to integrate these drone sensors into a wheeled armored vehicle platform, providing on-the-move detect and defeat capability of drones for military operators.

“This is the first fully integrated Counter UAS solution available for mobile platforms with support for third-party battle management systems,” says CEO of MyDefence North America, Luke Layman.

The platform can detect drones using RF technology and defeat threats using smart jamming. The solution can effortlessly be integrated with third-party battle-management systems (BMS), and using a standard tactical link, the mobile platform can communicate and provide feedback to any remote command and control (C2) system, providing greater situational awareness and enhanced battlefield effectiveness.

MyDefence first began integration testing with the General Dynamics Land Systems platform in 2017. The platform has since evolved and the Counter UAS solution can now be fully integrated into any vehicle platform, providing the flexibility and scalability needed for military operators.
