Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has been awarded a contract to supply several dozen DroneGuard ComJam mobile systems for the long-range detection and disruption of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) to an Asian country.
IAI’s ELTA Division developed the DroneGuard ComJam system for locating and disrupting UAS communications and navigation capabilities, whether they are operating independently or in groups (swarms), without impacting civilian communications and GPS in the same area.
According to IAI, the system detects hostile UAS, identifies their mode of operation, and disrupts their communications and navigation so that they are essentially shut down. DroneGuard ComJam offers the advantage of long-range operation, whereby the UAS is disabled long before it poses a threat to the protected site.
IAI’s DroneGuard systems have been delivered to customers around the world, where they are used to protect critical installations, as well as major events.
“IAI’s Electronic Warfare systems are a force-multiplier when dealing with modern airborne threats. They are a key component in operational deployment by armies and security forces worldwide,” said Adi Dulberg, VP & General Manager, IAI/ELTA Intelligence, Communications & EW Division. “Unauthorized border penetration by hostile UAS, or the ability to target maneuvering forces or crowded areas, could cause significant harm. Our customer’s ability to defend against such threats will be significantly enhanced by the long-range detection and disruption capabilities that DroneGuard ComJam delivers.”
