MyDefence Communication has integrated counter-UAS technology into General Dynamics Land Systems (GDLS) Light Armoured Vehicle (LAV) platform.

The integration of advanced, networked radio-frequency (RF) sensors will give military operators an on-the-move capability to effectively detect and defeat enemy UAS that may be being used for reconnaissance or as weapon delivery systems.

MyDefence began worked with GDLS to integrate the sensors into the LAV in 2017.

The system detects UAS using RF technology and defeat threats using smart jamming. The solution can be integrated with third-party battle management systems, and communicates and provides feedback to any remote C2 system via a standard tactical link, providing better situational awareness and enhanced battlefield effectiveness.

Luke Layman, CEO, MyDefence North America, said: ‘We are proud to announce the successful integration of our counter UAS sensors into the GDLS LAV platform. This is the first fully integrated counter UAS solution available for mobile platforms with support for third-party battle management systems.’

MyDefence and GDLS will conduct a demonstration of this integrated technology at the NATO Non-lethal Technology Exercise 2018, an exercise that focuses on capabilities with high technological readiness levels of non-lethal solutions.
