In March 2021 UAE EDGE agreed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) to develop an advanced C-UAS tailored to the UAE market, with wider ranging benefits for the MENA region and beyond. EDGE subsidiary, SIGN4L, a provider of electronic warfare services and solutions for national security, is collaborating with the Israeli defence manufacturer.
According to a joint press release, the fully autonomous C-UAS comprises advanced 3D radar, communications intelligence (COMINT), and electro-optic technologies integrated into a unified command and control system. A series of countermeasures, ranging from soft-kill solutions such as spoofing and jamming, to hard-kill capabilities such as lasers and electromagnetic pulses, are offered based on the level of threat and targeted operating environment.
