Australian counter drone manufacturer DroneShield has released the fifth edition of its C-UAS Factbook. The report provides an overview of available C-UAS technologies. This includes the review of the emerging UAS threat and its key categories, UAS types and capabilities.
Key threat categories include:
- Nuisance Activity
- Intelligence, Surveillance and Recognisance (ISR)
- Payload Delivery
The UAS types include Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGVs) and Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USVs).
UAS types range from group 1 (consumer and commercial UAS), all the way to group 5 (Reaper, Global Hawk, and other large sovereign UAS).
The Factbook considers various types of UAS detection sensors, including radiofrequency (RF) sensors, radars, acoustics, optics, and multi-sensor systems. It also reviews and compares various UAS effectors, including jammers (control link and GNSS jamming), spoofing, directed energy, counterdrone drones, other kinetic solutions, and layered C-UAS defeat options.
The Factbook finally reviews types of counter-UAS providers, ranging from start-ups and project companies, across to prime contractors, to established small businesses.
