Russia's state-run Rosoboronexport will present drone countermeasures at 2019th edition of the Dubai Airshow scheduled to begin on November 17, Sunday.
“The Middle East is a key region for Rostec. At Dubai Airshow 2019, Rostec holdings, in addition to new aircraft and helicopters, will showcase the latest Russian systems for countering drones and other air attack weapons. In particular, along with well-known ‘hard-kill’ air defense systems, we offer ‘soft-kill’ electronic warfare equipment mounted on various platforms, including the high- mobility systems Sapsan-Bekas, Kupol-PRO and Pishchal-PRO. These systems can be successfully used to protect military and industrial facilities, civilian infrastructure against drone attacks,” said Rostec General Director Sergey Chemezov.

On November 18, at Dubai Airshow 2019, Rosoboronexport will hold a public presentation "Russian systems for countering unmanned aerial vehicles."

“We expect great interest in Russian counter-drone developments. Unfortunately, the Middle East was one of the first regions in the world to learn about the reality of the threat posed by small and ultra-small drones that fell into the hands of terrorists. Today Rosoboronexport presents a wide range of assets capable of protecting any facilities and territories against this new threat,” said Alexander Mikheev, CEO of Rosoboronexport.

In addition, the company will unveil scale model of the Su-57E, the export version of Su-57, Russia's first stealth fighter jet.

“We’ll showcase scale models of the Su-57E fifth-generation fighter, of helicopters such as Mi-28NE and Mi-171SH, and unique air defense weapons including the upgraded Pantsir-S1M SPAAGM system. In addition, we are presenting a new Sula radar here to monitor space objects,” Chemezov said.

Irkut Corporation will exhibit a full-scale model of the Yak-130 combat trainer, Rosoboronexport said.
