TEL AVIV, Israel, Nov. 14 (UPI) -- Elbit Systems has revealed its new ReDrone, a device capable of detecting and neutralizing enemy unmanned aerial vehicles.
The company revealed the product during the Israel HLS & Cyber Conference in Tel Aviv. The system, officials say, is ideal for protecting high-value targets such as closed air spaces and national infrastructures against hostile threats.
The system is designed to detect and disrupt nearby UAVs in addition to supporting information, surveillance, target acquisition, and reconnaissance missions. A supporting SupervisIR system can also be integrated to boost detection capabilities, enabling thermal imaging.
On the field, the ReDrone is able to separate an incoming UAV from its operator's commands by blocking radio signals. It can also provide surveillance information from a 360-degree perimeter while providing situational awareness.
The fourth annual Israel HLS & Cyber Conference begins on Nov. 14 and will continue through Nov. 17. The event aims to attract leaders from the defense and cyber industries, and allows government officials from Israel and other countries to examine new technologies.
