ELTA Successfully Tests its Airport Anti-Drone Solution

ELTA Systems, a subsidiary of Israel Aerospace Industries, has successfully tested its Drone Guard solution at several international airports in Europe, Latin America and Southeast Asia. The Drone Guard system is a drone detection, tracking, identification and disruption system. It features an integrated multi-layered sensor system that includes: 3D X-band radar that detects and tracks all types of drones; dedicated COMINT system that classifies the drone by its transmission (using the information to verify the target and reduce false detection rates); an EO/IR camera used to classify the detected object; and a jammer that neutralises and intercepts the object. All the sensors are managed by a unified command and control unit. The layered configuration provides added protection should any single layer fail.
