Russia to feature new integrated counter-drone system at IDEX 2021 arms show

Rosoboronexport offered its new package solution: a system capable of effectively countering attacks by unmanned aerial vehicles, combining electronic warfare and air defense systems of various classes.

The company demonstrated the Repellent-Patrol electronic warfare system capable of jamming unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) at a range of up to 20 km, the Kupol and Rubezh-Avtomatika complexes that carry out continuous radio surveillance and create a protective dome over a facility as an impenetrable barrier that can repel attacks of separate drones and their groups coming from different directions and altitudes within a radius of at least 3 km, it said.

Rosoboronexport also showcased the Pishchal electro-magnetic gun, one of the lightest handheld jammers on the market: it weighs a mere about 3.5 kg but can jam UAV control/navigation channels at a range of 2 km.

As a hard-kill component of its counter UAV system, Rosoboronexport offered short-range air defense systems, in particular, the Pantsyr-S1M anti-aircraft missile/gun complex and the Tor surface-to-air missile system. The systems of these classes are capable of effectively destroying various air attack weapons, including drones. The Pantsyr-S1M has missile and gun armament and eliminates air targets at ranges of up to 30 km and at altitudes of up to 18 km, the press office specified.

As the ‘last-ditch’ air defense solutions, Rosoboronexport offered Verba or Igla-S man-portable air defense (MANPAD) systems, and also Gibka-S MANPAD squad combat vehicles capable of firing Verba or Igla-S missiles. These man-portable air defense systems can destroy targets at a maximum range of 6 km and a maximum altitude of 3.5 km.

"The integrated use of the proposed electronic warfare and air defense assets will enable effective countermeasures against UAVs of any class provided air enemy reconnaissance and automated control systems are in place," Rosoboronexport said.

ZALA Lancet - Drone Fighter

ZALA Lancet - Drone Fighter

Unmanned aviation follows the path of manned. At the beginning of the XX century, first, there were reconnaissance airplanes, then they learned to drop bombs from them. We fought the first planes initially from the ground with machine-gun and artillery fire, it turned out to be expensive and inefficient. Until specialized fighter planes appeared. History repeats itself with unmanned aircraft. Shooting down drones with missiles or cannons is also expensive and also inefficient. It was clear that soon the reconnaissance and strike drones would be hunted by unmanned fighters. The first such device was presented by the Russian company ZALA DEFENSE.
