EW Europe: New counter-UAS tech emerges
ESG Elektroniksystem und Logistik, Diehl Defence and Rohde & Schwarz have signed a cooperative agreement in the area of counter-UAS capabilities.
As rogue UAS continue to pose a security risk at public events and to high-risk infrastructures and facilities such as airports, industrial test sites, military sites and correctional facilities, the companies will coordinate efforts to counter this threat.
The team will provide tailored, bundled solutions based on radar, radiomonitoring, electromagnetic countermeasures, command and control information systems and position mapping technologies to detect and defend against threats posed by the unauthorized use of UAS.
The modular solution is known as the Guardion UAS defense system, comprising the HPEMcounterUAS effectors from Diehl Defence, R&S Ardonis from Rohde & Schwarz and the Taranis command and control and position mapping system developed by ESG.
Christoph Weber, head of defence and public security at ESG, on behalf of the cooperation partners, said: ‘Such deployment scenarios as well as experience gained elsewhere have confirmed our opinion that multiple intermeshed measures must be employed to ensure reliable protection against drones. The best way to meet this challenge is to integrate different, modular and scalable, cutting-edge technologies from various leading companies into a total solution.’
