Multi-Million Contract for Dozens of Systems
Israel Aerospace Industries’ (IAI) ELTA Systems group is to supply dozens of DRONE GUARD counter-UAS systems to a South Asian nation, in a deal valued at “tens of millions of dollars,” the company stated on 2 July.
The unique multi-sensor multi-layer ELI-4030 DRONE GUARD system is one of the most capable operationally proven systems currently available, providing the ability to detect, classify, identify and defeat drone attacks. The system is able to handle hundreds of targets simultaneously and provides a solution to multiple evolving threats. Its advantage derives from a multi-layer implementation concept, using a high-resolution 3D X-band radar – a key element in successful drone-detection – an integrated COMINT ESM, multi-channel jamming and high-resolution EO/IR with integrated AI capabilities. DRONE GUARD is a comprehensive solution for protection of a wide range of fixed and manoeuvring assets.
“With hundreds of units already operational across the world, the multi sensor, multi-layer DRONE GUARD system provides an efficient solution for [the] drone attack threat. The DRONE GUARD provides long-range detection and auto classification of the drone, integrating AI with automation processing [and] enabling fully-automated drone detection,” commented ELTA CEO, Yoav Tourgeman.
