The FELIX On-The-Move Counter UAS System is being exhibited for the first time at IDEF 2023.
“As a result of the work carried out by Meteksan Defence over the last few years, the development of an innovative system named FELIX for the detection, tracking and neutralization of mini/micro UAVs (drones) and Kamikaze UAVs has been completed,” said the company in a press statement. “FELIX, which can detect and jam faster UAVs from higher altitudes with its increased elevation coverage and update frequency rate, became one of the most interesting products of the IDEF 2023 Exhibition on the very first day.
“In addition to the innovative technologies it offers, FELIX is also one of the few UAV defense systems in the world market with its ability to operate on the move. With its Retinar AESA radar system developed with AESA/MIMO technology and customized for drone detection, MERT electronic attack system capable of target-specific reactive jamming, and command and control software, FELIX will be a new generation close-range air defence system that can operate even on the move, and will be a force multiplier for our security units in the protection of both fixed facilities and VIP/convoy protection.
“Retinar AESA, the detection and tracking system of FELIX, offers increased tracking performance with high update frequency and high-performance target classification features with low speed sensitivity. Retinar AESA, which can detect and track even on the move, can operate 24/7 without being affected by adverse weather conditions.
“The MERT Electronic Attack System, another component of the FELIX system, creates a much wider protection area thanks to its increased jamming range compared to active jamming systems. Standing out with its broadband reactive jamming, dynamic spectrum management and target-specific jamming features, MERT provides full protection to security forces even on the move.
