IAI and Iron Drone collaborate on Drone Guard C-UAS

29th June 2020 - 16:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has teamed up with Iron Drone for the integration of interception capabilities into IAI’s advanced anti-drone system, Drone Guard.

Each drone can be launched from a docking station at any time of day or night. Several targets or swarms can be intercepted by multiple interception drones launched simultaneously.

The drone uses a radar and sensors to steer towards its target. The process is autonomous and therefore does not require human intervention.

Matan Melamed, CEO of Iron Drone, said: ‘The strategic collaboration with IAI’s ELTA Systems is a significant milestone for Iron Drone. The combination of Drone Guard’s advanced capabilities with Iron Drone’s steering and homing excellence result in a significant business and technological venture.’
