Elbit Systems launches counter-UAS system

16th November 2016 - 15:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Elbit Systems has launched a new counter-UAS system called ReDrone, designed to provide protection of closed air spaces, national infrastructure and other critical areas against hostile UAS. 

ReDrone is capable of detecting, identifying, tracking and neutralizing UAS that are flown within a range of radio frequency communication protocols. It works by disrupting the target UAS’ communication with its operator, blocking its radio and video signals and GPS positioning data, and sending it off track, preventing it from carrying out an attack. 

The system’s open architecture allows multiple hardware configurations, including an array of controllers and sensors for target detection, tracking and engagement. 

ReDrone can separate a UAS’ signals from its operator’s remote control signals, and pinpoint both the UAS and the operator’s directions. It is capable of dealing with a number of targets simultaneously, and provides 360-degree perimeter protection for advanced situational awareness. 

The system can also be integrated with Elbit Systems’ SupervisIR infra-red wide-area persistent ISTAR system, enabling full-scale signal intelligence and thermal imaging detection capabilities. 

Suitable for operation in all weather conditions, its digital Android-based control unit has an intuitive user interface.
