DroneShield has announced the release of its latest counter unmanned aircraft system (UAS) jamming device called DroneNode.
DroneNode is designed to defeat UAS operating in the 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz frequencies out to a range of 1 km, with an option to jam systems using global satellite navigation systems.
Emergency broadcasts, mobile phone communication, and other dedicated channels will not be affected, the company said, adding that the system can also be used against UAS swarms.
DroneNode is based on the DroneShield's DroneCannon Remote Weapon (RW), a lightweight soft-kill jammer that can be mounted on any remote weapon station. The company announced the release of DroneCannon on 10 October.
The size and design of DroneNode - which can be transported in a carrying case - make it ideal for use at outdoor events without raising public concern, the company said.
