Lithuania to buy counter-UAS equipment
The Lithuanian Ministry of National Defence has announced the purchase of counter-UAS solutions for the Lithuanian armed forces. The acqusition is being made under a five-year bilateral defence cooperation plan agreed with the US Department of Defence in April 2019.
The plan outlines several areas of cooperation with the US over the next five years, including joint exercise and training, enhancement of the deterrence measures in the Baltic region, participation in multinational operations and development of regional cyber capabilities.
The contract worth $1.3 million will be financed by the US Department of State security assistance programme. The equipment will be delivered to the Lithuanian armed forces by the middle of 2020.
The equipment will be used to mitigate and counter potential threat posed by UAS flown over controlled territories. The equipment, which will be effective against standard commercial or modified UAS, will be able to interrupt communications between the UAS and its operator in order to disable its control and block navigation system signals.
