Saudi Arabia bought the Polish Sky Control system to protect against drones

84
Saudi Arabia continues to make attempts to build a system of protection against drones. Recall that a few weeks ago, Saudi Aramco oil refineries were attacked by drones and missiles.





Polish media report that Riyadh has acquired the Control Sky drone detection system (Ctrl + Sky). This is a system developed in Poland by APS (Advanced Protection Systems).

According to some reports, Saudi intelligence has received information about possible attacks on the country's communications systems. It is stated that drones can be used against the technical infrastructure of Saudi Telecom. To secure this technical infrastructure, Saudi Arabia is going to deploy Polish drones detection facilities at Saudi Telecom facilities.

The head of the Polish APS and one of the developers of “Ctrl + Sky” Maciej Klemm:

No one has any doubt that even a small drone can be used as extremely effective weapons, and this can have devastating consequences for the economy and security.

Klemm recalled that the Polish Ctrl + Sky had previously been acquired by Norway. The system is used at several airports in this Scandinavian country.

The system allows you to detect drones using a multisensor operating in a wide range of wavelengths. The software decrypts the received signal and allows to make a conclusion regarding the type and characteristics of UAVs detected in the air. The transaction value is not currently reported.

                Patriot air defense systems can also be suppressed.
                Analyzing information about the American Patriot air defense system, experts came to the conclusion that hypersonic missiles, capable of overcoming any modern air defense, would not even be required to overcome air defense.

                SAM "Patriot" can simply be turned off. To do this, you can use electronic warfare and electronic suppression.

                To process all the information, the Patriot complex requires constant communication with satellites. Without a special communication channel, the American system cannot function, at least for the destruction of ballistic missiles.

                Russian "Krasukhi" can suppress any communication channels within a radius of up to 300 km.

                  Saudi Arabia intends to deploy Polish drones detection facilities at Saudi Telecom facilities

                  Almost any technician with hands growing out of the backside will remake the drone control signal from the radio channel to a mobile phone modem in a couple of days. It is possible with a direct connection of two phones (one on the drone, the second on the control panel). And it is possible via the Internet (then the control panel can be located anywhere in the world).
                  The Hussites have good techniques, since such missiles and drones are riveting. They will buy the phone of the same Saudi Telecom, and attack.

          This Polish hanger is unlikely to cope with the project of the unmanned combat aircraft complex "Flock-93".

          Air Force Academy. Zhukovsky and Gagarin (Voronezh) presented at the Interpolitech-2019 exhibition the project of the unmanned combat aircraft complex “Flock-93”. The weapon is designed to engage a wide range of ground targets - air defense, tanks, artillery, armored vehicles and enemy manpower.
          The Flock 93 is a swarm of dozens of small bomber drones. Each unit is capable of carrying a small-sized aerial bomb weighing 2,5 kg. Experts note that with a massive strike by a group of UAVs, a serious damaging effect can be achieved. A monocular vision system is used to aim the ammunition on the target. It allows you to achieve accuracy up to several tens of centimeters.

          The complex will not be able to destroy large and well-fortified objects, but its firepower is enough to strike a convoy of vehicles or armored vehicles.


          The complex is made on the domestic electronic component base.


          The UAV of the Flock-93 complex will take the form of a flying wing. The absence of protruding aerodynamic surfaces will reduce the radar visibility of the device. Another advantage of the drone will be high energy efficiency. The developer expects UAVs to be able to carry out combat missions at ranges up to 140-150 km. The length of the drone is 1,2 m, the payload mass is 10 kg. The device takes off and lands vertically. "Swarm" can be lifted into the air, including from unprepared sites.

          "Flock-93" is implemented on the principle of swarm tactics. It involves the arbitrary nature of the flight of drones, while the drones are guided by the leading apparatus. Now the world uses the drill type UAV control, in which the device clearly knows its place in the rank. As explained by RT at the Air Force Academy, airborne vehicles are an uncomplicated target for modern air defense systems, while the swarm is highly survivable.

          “EW (electronic warfare) complexes cannot disable a group of drones. If the lead drone is destroyed by enemy fire or lost for one reason or another, then its functions are transferred to another device that was previously a slave. Thus, reconfiguration takes place - and so on until the loss of the last two devices, ”the academy said.

          In ancient times, when Muammar was alive, and there was a lot of money in the country, they began to buy the best weapons and equipment around the world. Without thinking about such things as pairing. So after the next raid of Americans, the USSR’s claims on the quality of our air defense systems were suddenly rolled out. It turned out that they decided that our means of communication is bullshit and bought German. There are no words. The Germans always had good means of communication, but they didn’t mate with our air defense systems. Data transmission systems worked in a different range and according to different algorithms.
          In general, good luck to the Saudis in their difficult task of adding petrodollars. In the army they have such a mixture of equipment and weapons that you need to be what is called seven spans in your forehead to combine them. What is hard to expect from camel drivers.

            Open your mouth toward MagenDavid.

            Did I say something wrong? Did I offend someone or spoke out about something unflattering? I was simply surprised at your gigantomania. You started to be rude. Who is it that hurt you so much?
            Are you tired of living ??)

            IAI-Azerbaijan is an evil and terrible gray wolf. He knows a lot about piglets. R-rrrrrrrr.
            What are you like Dog? ..))))

            Who is called, that’s called. You seem to have a brain for a long time according to the expiration date of one.

            Advise? So you tried it yourself? No thanks. I will refrain from such happiness. I don’t do these things.
            PS
            This must be able to still be so disgraced in the network as you do. hi

          Shiites in Azerbaijan suddenly converted to Judaism.

          It’s unlikely that they’ve converted to Judaism, but that's for sure for Israeli weapons and airfields.

      According to some reports, Saudi intelligence has received information about possible attacks on the country's communications systems.

      The Hussites warned them back in August. But they have the same Omerygan Patriots! And they are the best air defense in the world! laughing

      Damn, I always suspected that where Poland is, there is a tear. winked wow branch: with r and h, and self-destruction of users ...

      But as a matter of fact. This, after all, as I understand it, is a civil system. Intended for catching single unprotected drones m ДУ. Moreover, apparently, it is narrowly directed. Not her circular review. If, for example, I need to cover up refineries, I have to supply dozens of such systems. After all, the Hussites were not fools and attacked from different azimuths.
      So it’s interesting to me, are these stations here, are they a thing in themselves or do they allow integrating them into a high-level system? Because, even with my rather modest experience in building robotic systems, I can immediately come up with an algorithm in which the drone gets into the factory, even if the remote control and positioning are muffled to me. And therefore all the same drones need to shoot down. So etm printers can be hooked up to ZRAK or not? Somebody knows?
