MyDefence has developed Pitbull, a wearable counter-UAS solution that utilises jamming technology to defeat enemy UAS, the company announced on 28 June.

Pitbull has been developed to have minimal impact on other signals while jamming, in order to maintain its own communications. The jammer is a tactical solution weighing 775gms and can be worn on the uniform with the purpose of minimising the cognitive load of dismounted soldiers.

Pitbull is a plug-n-play solution that can be used together with the Wingman UAS detection platform to detect and defeat malicious UAS automatically. Pitbull is designed for dismounted soldiers operating in hostile environments, where enemy forces utilise commercially available UAS for reconnaissance and as weapon delivery systems.

The system features up to 20 hours standby battery time and two hours of active jamming. It has an effective jamming range of 1000m and covers 2.4-2.5GHz, 5.2-5.8GHz and the GNSS frequency bands.
