Russia’s Ruselectronics Tests Acoustic System to Detect Stealth Drones

Russia’s Ruselectronics has completed testing of an acoustic reconnaissance system that can detect drones flying in radio silence by virtue of the noise they make during flight.

Called “Ataka-Shorokh” acoustic reconnaissance module, the system has successfully passed the factory acceptance tests, Ruselectronics holding company, Rostec reported today.

The equipment is designed to protect civil and special objects from unauthorized entry of small UAVs. The module is equipped with ultra-sensitive microphones that allow you to locate an approaching drone from a distance.

The Ataka-Shorokh uses an intelligent system for analyzing the external environment, which will allow detecting emergencies, offenses, mass gatherings of people by characteristic noises.

“The tests confirmed the ability of intelligent algorithms to detect different types of drones in the presence of noise acoustic interference. During the tests, the module was successfully used as an independent system for detecting UAVs by acoustic noise, as well as part of the Ataka-DBS radio frequency detection and suppression system for UAVs and as part of its mobile version of Ataka-Trophy,” said general Director of Ruselectronics holding Mikhail Apin.

The equipment can be integrated with the Ataka-DBS complex of radio frequency detection and suppression of UAVs. If the sonic reconnaissance module detects a drone flying in autonomous mode, Attack-DBS blocks the satellite navigation channels of the unwanted vehicle.
