Rubezh-Avtomatika is a new design with an intelligent control to detect and neutralize drones without human interference. It can be used in field and city conditions, installed in open sites and on roofs. The complex is easily transportable. The deployment time does not exceed five minutes. The complex comprises radio reconnaissance and adaptive electronic jamming. It can operate automatically and manually.
"Presentations are held at the range. Various drones fly at distances of 30 km and their detection and counteraction are demonstrated. The anti-drone designs cause major interest of foreign customers. The concern has earlier presented key solutions in the sphere at DefExpo arms show in India. It demonstrated anti-drone systems to African representatives at Russia-Africa forum and to foreign customers at Dubai Airshow," Avtomatika CEO Vladimir Kabanov said.
“This new system by the Avomatika Concern will become a part of Rostec’s products intended for countering both civilian and military UAVs. Sapsan-Bekas is capable of countering UAVs both in manual and automatic modes in a wide frequency range — from 400 MHz to 6 GHz. The system is highly maneuverable since it is installed on an automobile chassis — this is a key requirement for various security agencies. Mobility is also important for civilian customers since it allows you to quickly move the system from one facility to another”, said the Executive Director of Rostec, Oleg Evtushenko.
