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
  • Hydrogen engines
Drones as a threat - The weapon of choice
  • Drone kamikaze
  • Drone bomber
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
Conclusions
  • 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!
