In the US, presented a mobile installation to combat drones
The United States has developed a new installation to combat drones. Sierra Nevada, at the current SOFIC 2018 exhibition in Nevada, presented an installation called "X-Madis". The new system is small and can be placed in the back of pickup trucks, Defense News reports.
According to the developers, the installation detects, recognizes and hits targets using electronic warfare tools while the vehicle is moving at speeds up to 80 km / h. The system is serviced by only one operator who controls the installation while in the vehicle cabin. More detailed characteristics, the developers do not lead. The system was developed by order of the US Department of Defense.
The company also claims that the new system, in addition to heavy pickups, can be installed on other mobile platforms, for example, boats and even ultra-light buggy-type SUVs.
The latest development has already been tested by representatives of the US military.
