Drone defence toolbox
Protection for civilian and military infrastructure
Incidents with drones in civilian environments and the constantly rising relevance of off-the-shelf drones in military operations generate an ever-growing demand for adequate, tailored solutions.
After concluding a series of trials and tests, Rheinmetall deploys a broadly based range of sensors and data processing technologies, which are applicable for various scenarios and threat environments. As a result, a combination of different radars in X- and S- band mode, passive emitter locators, commercial identification technologies such as ADS-B and 360° cameras with laser range finders as well as infrared and TV cameras in various spectrums.
The generated signals are processed, fused, and classified by our in-house command and control system "Skymaster" in order to provide a comprehensible, coherent recognized air picture. Further integration to systems in a higher echelon of commercial or military air operation centres significantly adds to the efficiency of the system and its operators.
Deployment possibilities of the abovementioned means are in accordance to the customer's needs stationary, rapid-deployable or mobile. For the mobile version, Rheinmetall offers several platforms including ballistic protected vehicles.
The Rheinmetall C-UAS jammer with its directed jamming signal is readily available for interventions. In the near future, autonomous catcher drones can be integrated and for high threat environments, the high-energy laser and a wide range of air defence cannons using the highly specialized Ahead air burst ammunition against micro targets can be added.
This allows the customer to adapt to constantly changing requirements with maximum flexibility while staying within the boundaries of their budget.
