MyDefence Communication has announced the integration of counter unmanned aerial system (UAS) technology in vehicle platforms, after working closely with General Dynamics Land Systems (GDLS).

MyDefence developed the advanced, networked radio-frequency (RF) sensors, which provide on-the-move detect and defeat capability of drones for military operators.

The technology detects drones using RF technology and defeats hostile systems using smart jamming, and can be further integrated with third-party battle management systems.

It can also communicate and provide feedback to a remote command control system by using any standard tactical link, which provides greater awareness and enhances battlefield effectiveness.

“We are proud to announce the successful integration of our counter UAS sensors into the GDLS Light Armoured Vehicle platform. This is the first fully integrated counter UAS solution available for mobile platforms with support for third-party battle management systems,” says CEO of MyDefence North America Luke Layman.

Testing for integration first began back in 2017 using GDLS platform, and the technology has since evolved to be able to be used with any vehicle platform.

Large-scale demonstrations of the technology will be conducted at the NATO Non-Lethal Technology Exercise 2018.

GDLS' core business is in armoured vehicles, and the Australian subsidiary operates as a prime contractor to the Australian Defence Force, supplying, upgrading and supporting the ADF's armoured vehicle fleets.
