Elta unit of Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has unveiled an enhanced version of its Drone Guard system, which detects, identifies and disrupts the operation of small drones.
Small drones pose potential threats such as unwanted intelligence gathering, smuggling and even as weapon carriers. The new modular configuration has added a Communication Intelligence (COMINT) system for detection, classification and identification based on broadcast frequency and communication protocol analysis and verification for neutralizing threats, Globes reported Wednesday.
The Drone Guard's 3D Radars, Electro-Optical (EO) and Jammer systems have also been upgraded. The system can effectively jam or disrupt the drone’s control channel and navigation, by supporting an array of communication protocols that can ‘fend off’ a single drone or even a swarm of drones from the guarded premises, the newspaper reported.
