Russian news agency TASS reports the NPO Kaysant Company “has created an anti-drone gun capable of suppressing up to 90% of unmanned aerial vehicle used by the Ukrainian army.”
“We have manufactured an anti-drone gun with a different form factor, more customary for ordinary people, in the form of a gun that can be hanged over the shoulder,” the company told the news agency. “The product is operating in seven frequency bands and is capable of suppressing a high percentage of drones – up to 90% of the ones used by the adversary in the special operation zone. This refers to any commercial drones, fixed-wing drones and FPV drones.”
“Seven frequency band sis the objective maximum existing to date. There are items abroad, if we take China, that are operating in larger frequency ranges but there are not present in the Russian market so far. These are the seven bands used for flying by the majority of drones. Certainly, there are machines flying at staggered frequencies and other items of equipment are being made to suppress them. Therefore, we cannot say we suppress 100% of drones – we suppress the majority of drones,” the company said.
A few days previously, another Russian news portal www.1.ru reported that the same manufacturer had upgraded its Argus-Antifury mobile electronic warfare (EW) station “so the equipment will be able not only to suppress drones, but also to determine their location.”
“According to a company representative, Argus-Antifury detects a drone and sends a signal to the operator for guidance,” said the news outlet. “Previously, servicemen had to use two devices: EW tools and a direction finding device….Argus-Antifury is a trench version of EW, its weight is 18 kg, operating range – 2 km. The system suppresses most drones, including aircraft-type devices. The product has been improved considering the experience of Russian servicemen. The upgraded station has been launched into mass production.”
