Danish counter drone technology provider MyDefence reports shipment of wearable counter drone equipment to protect up to 30 Special Operations Forces (SOF) units. The company says its wearable Wingman RF detector has been selected to empower SOF units with the ability to gain malicious drone awareness in a radius of 1.5 km with easy interface and limited disturbance for the operations.
A SOF typically operates in units of 4-8 people each with specialised roles and skills. Together, the team’s ability to solve sensitive strategic or operational objectives exceeds the routine capabilities of conventional military forces and SOF operations are frequently clandestine to ensure mission success. The demanding nature of SOF missions sets high standard requirements to the equipment used by SOF soldiers that has often been designed to meet specific operational tasks.
Mydefence estimates that more than 200 SOF operators can be covered by this shipment and hence be kept safe from the emerging threat that drones bring to the area of operation.
