General Dynamics and MyDefence Aim to Protect Military Vehicles from Drones

MyDefence Communication has announced the successful integration of Counter Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) technology in vehicle platforms for military forces. The integration of the drone sensors allows military operators to detect and defeat enemy drones used for reconnaissance or as weapon delivery systems.

MyDefence has developed advanced, networked radio-frequency (RF) sensors, and has worked closely with General Dynamics Land Systems to integrate these drone sensors into a wheeled armoured vehicle platform, providing on-the-move detect and defeat capability of drones for military operators.

The platform is designed to detect drones using RF technology and defeat threats using smart jamming. The solution can effortlessly be integrated with third-party battle-management systems, and using a standard tactical link, the mobile platform can communicate and provide feedback to any remote command and control system.

MyDefence first began integration testing with the General Dynamics Land Systems platform in 2017. The platform has since evolved and MyDefence says the Counter UAS solution can now be fully integrated into any vehicle platform, providing the flexibility and scalability needed for military operators.

MyDefence and General Dynamics Land Systems will be conducting a large-scale demonstration of this integrated technology at the NATO Non-lethal Technology Exercise 2018 (NNTEX-18), an exercise that focuses on capabilities with high technological readiness levels of non-lethal solutions.
