Airbus Defense and Space develops counter-UAV system

Posted 20 April 2016 · Add Comment

Airbus Defense and Space has developed a counter-UAV system that detects UAVs at long ranges and offers electrical countermeasures.

The system combines sensor data with data fusion, signal analysis and jamming technologies and uses operational radars, infrared cameras and direction finders.
 
This allows the system to identify and assess the threat potential at 5 – 10 kilometres, interrupt the link between drone and pilot, and track the position of the pilot.
 
Measures like remote control classification and GPS spoofing can also be used, allowing for a takeover of the UAV.
 
The system will be available later on this year.
