The Italian military announced that it is testing a new anti-UAV jammer in the Prometo 2020 exercise. The Prometo 2020 exercise was conducted by the Micro/Micro Aircraft Remote Control Center (CM/M APR) at the Foce Verde (LT) test site last week. The purpose of this exercise is to educate and train anti-UAV operators in the air defense department, and conduct experimental activities to develop and research new systems that will become more and more powerful and effective in responding to this threat.
During the training, the WATSON Drone jammer used in the long-range multi-band unmanned aircraft system was tested. The new anti-drone jammer was developed by CPM. As the company pointed out, the system is light and easy to use. It aims to use the latest interference technology to protect specific areas from UAS intrusion, and to achieve the best balance between performance and size. This special “jamming gun” is lightly hand-held and can hold up to 15 BANDs, which can interrupt the most frequent connection between UAS and the operator’s satellite network (GSSN) and the possible frequencies of the new generation.
WATSON can be used as a standalone UAV jammer device, or it can be integrated in the radar of anti-UAS systems (such as our CPM GUARD-ONE or other C 2 existing C-UAS systems). In this case, WATSON, which receives the alarm signal by radio, is guided to the destination as an “augmented reality” device.
