PAS17: Thales Exhibits Counter-UAS Solution

Integrated into a wider Ground Based Air Defence solution

At Paris Air Show 2017, Thales exhibited its Counter-Unmanned Aerial System (C-UAS) solution, with company officials describing how it could be integrated into civilian air traffic management C2 systems; as well as additional concepts for base and critical national infrastructure protection.

Describing the latest tests conducted in April, Thales explained how targeted UAVs had been jammed at ranges out as far as 1km although it conceded that it remained challenging to find, fix and neutralise fixed wing UAVs because of their reduced radar signature.

Additionally, the solution has been integrated into a wider Ground Based Air Defence solution as well as potential to be integrated with more kinetic effectors to disrupt targeted UAVs including the company’s own LLM and Rapid Fire 40mm air bursting round.

Thales also admitted it was working on a directed energy solution to disrupt UAVs.
