Wearable C-UAS for special ops forces
MyDefence has developed a wearable UAS detection platform for Special Operations Forces, the company announced on 14 May.
Called Wingman 103, the counter-UAS solution has a detection range of 1-2km depending on environmental conditions, providing situational awareness and early-warning on threats to the wearer. It is designed to meet the requirements of dismounted elite forces: the system is ultra-lightweight with rugged exterior able withstand extreme operational conditions and operating temperatures from -30°C to +65°C.
The system can be attached to the soldier’s uniform or backpack using the MOLLE clip-on system. It is designed to be used with standard external clip-on batteries with 14 hours of operation.
Wingman 103 can be used with the new AA100 special-designed quad-band active antenna that provides 360 degrees of coverage on the 433MHz, 1.2Ghz, 2.4GHz and 5.8Ghz frequency bands. The AA100 is plug-and-play and does not require an external power source, as the antenna is powered by the Wingman system.
Dan Hermansen, COO, MyDefence, said: ‘The Wingman 103 has been designed together with special operations forces, making it a truly unique product that takes operational requirements of the end users into account. The result is a rugged dust- and waterproof wearable drone detection device that provides all-day battery life in all operational conditions – from arctic to desert environments.’
