MyDefence is launching its third product in the WINGMAN series of wearable drone detection platforms, the WINGMAN 103, designed to meet the requirements of elite forces – a wearable drone detection platform that can withstand extreme operational conditions.
According to the company the product is small and light, allowing dismounted soldiers to wear the WINGMAN 103 on their uniforms or backpacks using the MOLLE clip-on system. It is designed to withstand extreme conditions with operating temperatures from -30°C to +65°C (-22oF to 149oF) and with an IP67 rating, the unit is dust- and waterproof. It has a detection range of 1-2 kilometers, depending on environmental conditions, providing situational awareness and early-warning on threats and is designed to be used with standard external clip-on batteries with 14 hours of operation
Together with the WINGMAN 103, the MyDefence external Active Antenna (AA100) is also being introduced. The special-designed quad-band active antenna provides 360 degrees of coverage on the 433MHz, 1.2Ghz, 2.4GHz and 5.8Ghz frequency bands. The AA100 is plug-n-play and does not require an external power source, as the antenna is powered by the WINGMAN.
The AA100 active antenna is dust- and waterproof and is designed specifically for drone detection with its built-in filters and low noise amplifiers, making it compatible the WINGMAN 103.
