Defense Drone Counter Measures
Protecting army bases and defense personnel from unwanted drones
Defense forces under commercial drone terrorist attacks
For many years now, terrorists have been using the available commercial drones to gather intelligence, surveil, disrupt, and kill defense troops, diplomats, and civilians. In asymmetrical warfare where unconventional strategies and tactics are used by terrorists, drones are frequently utilized against conventional forces and can be modified by attaching small explosive devices to them, effectively turning them into remotely controlled bombs.
Empower your military personnel with autonomous counter-drone solutions
Sentrycs delivers integrated counter-drone solutions that are flexible and modular and provide military units with complete 24/7 protection from unwanted eyes in the sky. Sentrycs’ counter-drone solution and UAS countermeasures provide detection, tracking, identification, and mitigation of unauthorized drones, even when GPS spoofing or jamming are being used. Fully autonomous, the Sentrycs DTI and Mitigation modules require very little training to be operated and do not disrupt other communications.
Frequently Asked Questions
Traditional counter-drone detection methods such as radars may emit radio waves, which can reveal the presence of military units and even expose them to anti-radar missiles. Sentrycs technology detects unauthorized or rogue drones, accurately identifies them, and then automatically takes control of the drones and lands them in a safe, designated area. The system is passive during detection and identification, so that military units do not unintentionally broadcast their location to the opposing force.>
The Sentrycs solutions require very limited training in order to be operated. Our teams will provide this training prior to completing any installation. In essence, once deployed, the system is fully autonomous and does not require making real-time decisions. >
Yes, it is possible to block a drone signal, which is typically accomplished by using a method called "jamming." Jamming involves broadcasting interference at the same frequency as the drone's control signal, blocking the communication link between the drone and the operator. However, it's important to note that jamming signals is subject to stringent regulations in many countries, including the U.S, due to its interference with other critical wireless communications and the safety implications of such actions.>
Indeed, there are anti-drone drones designed to counter hostile or unauthorized drones. These include net-carrying drones that capture other drones mid-air, and jamming drones that disrupt a target drone's control signals. Some anti-drone drones are built to physically collide with the target, forcing it to the ground. Others act as aerial platforms, launching non-lethal projectiles at the target. It's important to note that while these technologies are available, their use is highly regulated due to safety, privacy, and legal concerns. Also, they require a high degree of precision to avoid collateral damage and to ensure the target is indeed a threat.>
An Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) is a burst of electromagnetic radiation, which can disrupt or damage electronic equipment. While EMPs can disrupt or damage drone electronics, using them as anti-drone weapons raises issues. EMPs aren't selective and can affect all electronics within their range, potentially causing collateral damage to unintended devices. Additionally, their effectiveness varies based on the drone's shielding and distance, making them less reliable in certain scenarios.>
