SIGN4L has unveiled a new mobile vehicular-based counter-unmanned aircraft system (C-UAS) at IDEX 2023, being held in Abu Dhabi from 20 to 24 February.

The platform, known as Sky Shield, provides full omnidirectional C-UAS protection in the tactical environment and can be deployed within five minutes, Filip Kostomlatsky, senior programme manager for electronic warfare and intelligence at SIGN4L,told Janes.

According to Kostomlatsky, the platform is equipped with an X-band radar, an electro-optical camera, a directional finder, and an RF detector and omnidirectional jammer that is capable of detecting and neutralising multiple UASs from up to 3 km away. The radar, the camera, and the antenna are all provided by third-party companies. He was unable to elaborate further at the time of publication.

The RF detector and jammer operates in the 400 MHz to 6 GHz frequency range. A takeover control capability is under development, he added.

The platform was developed to meet a requirement from the United Arab Emirates for a mobile tactical C-UAS. The platform is also available for other customers on request.
