Israel Aerospace's Drone Guard detection and disruption counter UAV system is for military and civilian applications.

Israel Aerospace Industries Ltd. (IAI) (TASE: ARSP.B1) is seeing steadily growing demand for its Drone Guard detection and disruption counter UAV system, for both military and civilian applications. The recently unveiled system has already been purchased by several customers for critical asset and personnel protection. Numerous potential customers have already attended dedicated demonstrations of the system versus various drone threats, with more demonstrations anticipated for the coming months.

The use of small drones has increased dramatically over the years, making them a potential threat to critical infrastructures, other aircraft and homeland security (HLS), due to their small size, low speed and low flight altitude.

IAI's Subsidiary and Group, ELTA Systems Ltd., is offering specially designed 3-Dimensional (3D) radars and existing Electro-Optical (EO) sensors for detection and identification, as well as dedicated Electronic Attack (EA) jamming systems for disrupting drone flight.

IAI EVP and ELTA President Nissim Hadas said, "We have managed to pack high grade military radar and jamming capabilities into a compact, effective and affordable drone protection system. Since unveiling the Drone Guard system earlier this year we are experiencing steadily growing sales and demand of the system for military, HLS and civilian protection tasks."
