Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) and Iron Drone announced Monday they entered into an agreement for the integration of interception capabilities into IAI’s advanced anti-drone system, Drone Guard.

The intercepting drone can be launched during day or night from a docking station that hosts several ready-to-use drones. Several intercepting drones can be launched simultaneously to address several targets or swarms, IAI said in a statement June 29.

“Drone Guard is one in a full suite of solutions offered by ELTA’s Land Systems facility under construction in Beer Sheba at an investment of over NIS 100 million,” said Zvi Yarom, General Manager of ELTA’s Land Systems Division.

IAI’s ELTA Systems has sold over 100 units of Drone Guard systems. The advanced radar integrated with Drone Guard is capable of detecting drones as they enter the airspace. The intercepting drone is launched and steered to the target with the help of the radar.

It uses sensors and computer vision to home and lock on the target up to the physical hit of the attacker and its neutralization. The entire process is autonomous, requiring no human intervention. The solution can be used in areas where other defense systems cannot because of environmental factors like airports, populated areas, power plants, sensitive facilities, and other infrastructures.
