The collaboration between DCM Shriram Industries and Israel’s Avnon Group first announced in 2022 has moved to system tests combining Avnon’s Skylock system with DCM’s portable counter-UAV system, according to press reports from the 4th Drone International Expo 2023 in New Delhi. The partners aim to serve the Indian market by enhancing the nation’s defence capabilities against emerging threats posed by UAS.
DCM Shriram and Avnon are testing the radio frequency detector and jammer with the Indian Border Security Force (BSF).
The DCM counter-unmanned aerial system (CUAS) has ethernet-based automatic detection, tracking, identification, and neutralisation capabilities for day and night operations. The CUAS has a military grade design with shell protection level IP67 and IP66 and technology readiness level (TRL)-9, according to Jane’s. Its RF detector is “fully passive and capable of sensing the controller and the UAV, even when the UAV is on the ground. It is also fitted with a direction-finding sensor for Wi-Fi frequencies with up to 5° root mean square (RMS) accuracy. The system requires three or more RF detectors to track the operators’ geographical co-ordinates.The 9.5 kg DCM RF detector measures 0.32×0.29 m, has an azimuth coverage of 360°, and an elevation coverage of ±90° with 70 dB dynamic range. The RF detector offers a scanning frequency resolution of <100 Hz.”
