Unmanned aerial systems/vehicles (UAS/UAV) - Drones
Drones have spread very widely all over the world.
This is why drones are useful - missions.
Countries developing military drones
Developing the drones - Under research
Wireless power transfer
Drones as a threat - The weapon of choice
Drones as a threat - Protection problems
Drones cannot be detected and tracked with existing air traffic control system.
Drones can become all but invisible to the naked eye.
Military radars are mostly designed to detect large, fast movind objects.
It is impractical to use traditional air defense weapons.
There are no standarts for insuring the performance and reliability of the C-UAV system.
Counter-drone (C-UAV) technology
C-UAV - Drawbacks
The Electronic C-UAV systems - Examples
The Russian GARPUN-2
The Russian REX-1
C-UAV systems using HPEM technology
The German HPEM C-UAV esc aerospace
The German HPEM C-UAV GUARDION
UAV technology is not always a friendly technology, it might be a threat.
E-counter measures (ECM) are effective only against single low-cost consumer drones. But not against swarms.
Using ECM technologies, the drone loses touch with the control panel and lands, but is not physically destroyed.
Kinetic C-UAV systems can be deployed against drones that still represent a threat despite non-kinetic systems.
The HPEM technology is the most promising C-UAV measure.
Thank you for attention!
