A Linkedin post from counter-UAS specialist Tim De Zitter reports that the Ukrainian company Kvertus Technology has supplied more than 80 of its KVS G-6 long range anti-drone jammers to Ukranian forces, with over 100 on order. The report is based on a June 2022 video.
“The weapon, manufactured in the Ukrainian city of Ivano-Frankivsk, has a range of up to three kilometers, or around 1.8 miles, and can operate for up to 30 minutes at a time, according to the company,” a Ukrainian source was quoted in the article. “Once disconnected, the drone loses coordination and either lands where it is jammed or is blown away by the wind. Ukrainian forces can then take the drone and read its data to gain valuable information about it, such as where it came from and any images it might have taken.”
The devices are reported to cost USD12,000 each.
