Ukraine deploys new, more capable C-UAS jamming system to the front line

Ukraine has deployed its counter-unmanned aerial system (C-UAS) dual jamming Ai-Petri SV system for the first time.

Developed by a Ukrainian team, and funded by the Poroshenko Foundation, the Ai-Petri has been described as a dual jamming system and cyber weapon by former president of Ukraine and the foundation’s chair, Petro Poroshenko.

In a Facebook post, Poroshenko said the C-UAS “not only spreads noise across all frequency bands, but also clearly intercepts the pilot’s position, prevents Russian UAVs from working, completely disorients first-person view (FPV) drones, and can even interfere with the operation of air traffic control systems”. He added that the system is already operational in the Avdiyiv region.

“Usually, the development of such a system takes from three to eight years,” Poroshenko said, “but we managed it in less than five months and are already working on scaling, because we have many orders from the military.”

The complete C-UAS includes a radar station and autonomous power supply, as well as various communications and control equipment.

Petro Poroshenko also announced on Facebook that the Poroshenko Foundation and volunteers of the Sprava Hromad NGO have jointly delivered 2,000 FPV drones, as well as engineering and special equipment to the Ukrainian military.
