Zala Aero Group, a Kalashnikov company, has presented its REX 1 counter-UAS gun at the Army 2017 forum in Russia. According to the company: “The weapon is equipped with a block of suppression, which drowns in the radius of five kilometers signals of the US satellite navigation system GPS, Russia’s GLONASS, China’s BeiDou and Europe’s Galileo. Also, the device is capable of blocking GSM, 3G, LTE signals at a kilometer distance and interfering with frequencies of 900 Mhz, 2.4 GHz, 5.2 – 5.8 GHz. The REX 1 disables the drone but does not damage it physically – the aircraft loses its connection with the control panel and smoothly lands.
“To put the device in combat readiness, just press one button. The weapon is equipped with a fastening system, so that it can additionally be equipped with sights, lights, designators, as well as objective control devices.
“The weight of REX 1 is 4.2 kg, while the model has a built-in battery that provides continuous operation of the device for three hours.”
