Rostec company develops C-UAS radar
Rostec company Ruselectronics has developed a hand-held UAS detection radar, Rostec announced on 10 October.
The multi-channel Ka-band radar is 325x240x230mm in size and can detect small-size drones at a distance up to 7.5km. The direction finder digital repeater is based on a rotary device that provides visibility in all directions. The station can be controlled manually from a laptop or automatically.
According to the company, the radar was developed to counter the threat small UAS pose in being able to carry out covert surveillance and reconnaissance, or serve as an explosives delivery method or other means of attack.
Oleg Yevtushenko, executive director, Rostec, said: ‘Traditional radar methods do not provide reliable detection of unmanned flying vehicles with a small reflective surface. The development of our holding Roselectronics solves this problem successfully. Undoubtedly, the new development will be in demand among both special and civilian customers.’
