Elbit Systems has launched a vehicular configuration of the ReDrone anti-drone protection and neutralization system in a bid to meet the increasing demand for protection of vehicles and convoys against hostile drones.

ReDrone Vehicular Tactical System detects, identifies, and neutralizes all types of drones (at any radio frequency) within a radius of several kilometers, providing 360-degrees protection, Elbit said in a release. Suitable for on-the-move or stationary operations, in day and night and in all weather conditions, ReDrone Vehicular Tactical System is offered for all types of military and para-military vehicles, the company added.

According to Elbit, the system works automatically or manually, requiring no setup or operator control. Its open architecture enables a full data flow to the vehicular control system and an effective interface with command and control centers. 

With the detection of a hostile drone, the ReDrone Vehicular Tactical System neutralizes all communications between the drone and its operator, including radio, video and GPS signals. The system is also capable of separating a drone’s signals from its operator’s remote control signals in order to locate and track each of them separately.  

Operational with several armed forces, ReDrone performed dozens of interceptions when deployed as part of the last visit of the Pope to Latin America.
