Turkey Develops High-Tech Drone Killer System
Turkey’s ASELSAN domestic defense firm has developed an integrated air defense system to detect, track and disrupt small and micro unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) against any threat on public and commercial settlements.

The Air Defense System (İHTAR) uses radio beams to freeze drones in midair by interfering with their control channels, Yeni Safak reported.

The basic functions of the İHTAR system are the identification of the UAVs, automatic follow-up of the UAVs and labeling them as threats and preventing their illegal activities through most appropriate countermeasures.

The Full system is equipped with electronic scanning air security radar, a stabilized electro-optic director, thermal and daylight cameras, a directional radio frequency inhibitor and jamming system.

The new air defense system aims to protect public and commercial areas, including airports, power plants, civil facilities, border posts and military headquarters, against the UAVs illegal activities, according to the company developing the device.

İHTARs jamming and deception systems can identify and follow any fixed or mobile threats via radar and cameras. Further the system enables the blunting of the signal of the UAVs GPS channels, so that the drones lose control and cut contact with the operators.

This air defense system, which has an ability to jam 360 degrees, is managed by a central command. It is designed to protect individual targets against mass attacks. It integrates multiple and various radar and preventive systems with its modular form.

In addition to the radio disruptor / jammer, İHTAR also has an optical disruptor that can disrupt the auto focus on the drones camera, rendering it useless.
