USAF orders Dronebuster

6th June 2017 - 16:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Radio Hill Technologies (RHT) has received a $2.5 million contract to deliver 100 Block 3 Dronebuster counter-UAS detection and jamming systems to the US Air Force (USAF), the company announced on 2 June.

The 5lb Dronebuster is a hand-held UAS detection and jamming system powered by a rechargeable Li-ion battery.

This third-generation model can detect incoming radio frequency signals to aid in aiming the device in low visibility, and displays that signal strength via LED lights on the control panel. It jams consumer and modified UAS radios in the ISM, UHF HAM and GPS bands.

The redesigned antenna cluster and amplification network provide directional jamming over longer ranges than previous models, according to the company.

The system has undergone extensive testing by the USAF as part of this contract award. Deliveries will begin immediately.
