AUSA 2022: Leonardo DRS features new SPEAR battlefield directed energy C-UAS

Leonardo DRS is highlighting its recently developed Specialized Portable Electro-magnetic Attack Radiator (SPEAR) C-UAS at AUSA 2022.

According to the company:

“SPEAR provides a portable, compact, and deployable High Power Electromagnetic (HPEM) source as a directed energy weapon against individual and swarm drone threats. The innovative system was designed as an intentional, single-pulse to repetition rate, high-power electromagnetic radiator. Due to its portable size, low weight, low power requirements, and effectivity, SPEAR provides Counter small Unmanned Aircraft System (C-sUAS) capabilities to ground vehicles, fixed platforms, and field troops. Ultrawide bandwidth permits engagement of targets without prior knowledge of specific vulnerabilities and the system features an ability to disrupt and destroy targets with both front-and-back-door coupling.”

Other features include:

  • Counter heterogeneous sUAS swarms simultaneously without prior knowledge of threat type
  • Defeat ranges beyond distances associated with Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) / Reconnaissance, Surveillance, and Target Acquisition (RSTA) type UAS swarm attack distances
  • System electromagnetically couples with heterogeneous target systems regardless of size
  • Independent of threat orientation due to simultaneous horizontal and vertical polarization
  • Rapid deployment; instantaneous effectivity
  • Easily transportable, set-up/power-up in seconds to minutes
