A report published by Focus Taiwan CNA English News says Taiwan’s military authority has approved a project to install indigenous defense systems against unmanned aerial vehicles. Installed at 45 bases across the country, the counter UAS systems are designed to neutralise hostile drones if necessary.
According to the report: “Under the five-year-project that runs until 2026, the defense ministry will spend Taiwan dollars 4.3 billion (US$146 million) to purchase the UAV defense systems, which were designed by Taiwan’s National Chung Shan Institute of Science & Technology (NCSIST), the source told CNA on condition of anonymity.
“The UAV defense systems will be installed at 45 air, naval, and missile bases throughout the country, including those in remote mountain areas and on Taiwan’s outlying islands, the source said.
“The system is designed to disrupt and neutralize drones engaged in hostile airborne surveillance and other potentially malicious activities, according to the NCSIST. It is capable of remotely detecting, tracking, and classifying small UAVs, before giving the option to disrupt their activities.”
