French company CS Group demonstrated its Boreades counter drone solution as part of the selection process ahead of the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris. A ‘Safe Drone Seminar’ organised by the SGDSN included a series of test scenarios to demonstrate ways of neutralising Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) which could disrupt Jeux Olympic Paris 2024.
CS’ BOREADES anti-drone solution is designed to integrate several detection, identification and neutralization sensors to respond to all types of threats and neutralize all types of commercial drones (with or without remote control). It features real-time supervision and control of the means of neutralization from the command and control station.
On the occasion of this demonstration, CS was able to successfully demonstrate different sequences of electromagnetic interference:
- Directional interference: controlled by the command and control station (C2) of the Boreades system, allowing neutralization to be focused on the target by limiting the impact on the environment;
- Omnidirectional jamming: aimed at deploying a bubble of protection around the site to be protected, and preventing multiple attacks (swarms of drones) coming from several directions.
CS also demonstrated its interceptor capability, which is designed to identify the target drone and activate neutralisation of the drone. CS is in the process of developing a jammer linked to the interceptor drone which is designed to land the target drone. This solution has several advantages: It has limited electromagnetic impact due to its close proximity to the target drone; and being airborne can be more effective than ground-based neutralisation solutions.
Boreades also incorporates the Unmanned Traffic Management (UTM) solution from Air Space Drone (ASD) to provide an integrated solution that manages both cooperative UAVs and illicit drones.
Boreades is among four security solutions from CS Group which have been approved by the Industry Strategic Committee (CSF) for deployment at major events such as the Jeux Olympic Paris 2024.
