Italian army tests anti-jamming drone gun
The Italian military has revealed that it has tested a new drone jammer gun during the Prometo 2020 exercises.
Exercise Prometo 2020 was hosted by the Counter Mini / Micro Remotely Piloted Aircraft Center of Excellence (CM / M APR) at the Foce Verde (LT) proving ground last week.
The exercise was conducted in order to train and train anti-drone operators of the anti-aircraft services and to carry out experimental activities aimed at developing and researching new systems, always more efficient and effective, to fight against this threat.
The WATSON long-range multiband unmanned aircraft systems jammer was tested during the exercise.
The new anti-jamming anti-drone gun developed but the company CPM.
As stated by the company, lightweight and easy to use, the system has been developed to protect designated areas from UAS intrusions using the latest jamming technologies to offer the best compromise between performance and size. Lightweight and hand held, this special "scrambler" features up to 15 BANDS, capable of cutting the most common links between UAS and Satellite Network Operators (GSSN), and possible next-generation frequencies.
The WATSON can be used as a “stand-alone” device or integrated with the radar in a counter-UAS system, like our CPM GUARD-ONE, or other C-UAS systems already existing in C 2. In this case, the WATSON, receiving an alert signal by radio, is guided towards the target like an “augmented reality” device.
