Electronic counter measures company Allen-Vanguard has launched the ANCILETM electronic shield for defeating commercial drones. “Governments around the world are acutely aware of the threat posed by commercial drones weaponized by terrorists and insurgents or used for criminal activity”, said Mike Dithurbide, President of Allen-Vanguard Corporation. “Until now there has been no effective counter-measure that is also affordable, portable, easy to use and readily deployable anywhere including urban environments. Our new ANCILE TM electronic shield means that security forces everywhere can now afford a capability that will reliably defeat commercial drones.”
ANCILE TM prevents the intended drone mission by using Allen-Vanguard’s RF inhibition technology to disrupt a wide range of command and control protocols. It assures total enforcement of a no-fly zone, says the company, for example to protect convoys, operating bases, sensitive locations and public events. ANCILE TM is effective against multiple, simultaneous drone threats including swarms. It can be used stand-alone or easily integrated into any suite of electronic assets and tailored to any specific circumstance or requirement.
