Elta’s Drone Guard delivered to Argentina
ELTA Systems has supplied its Drone Guard C-UAS system to Argentina for the detection, identification and disruption of malicious UAS during large-scale international events, IAI announced on 29 November.
The Drone Guard system has already been used to secure the 2018 Youth Olympics held in October, and the G20 Summit in Buenos Aires.
Drone Guard is based on a combination of 3D radars that trace air targets, electro-optical and COMINT capabilities, and a dedicated UAV flight disruption system. It uses an integrated sensor system, including flying objects detection radar, a COMINT system that identifies UAS by its transmission frequency and unique protocol - using the information to verify the target and reduce false positive rates; and a camera identification confirmation of the detected object.
ELTA Systems’ Drone Guard is designed to detect and block the communication capability of the malicious UAS without compromising the communication capabilities of nearby civilian infrastructures. The system can be mounted on a tripod, vehicle or existing building.
