A trio of British technology companies comprising Blighter Surveillance Systems, Chess Dynamics and Enterprise Control Systems – leaders in their respective fields – have combined forces to develop a powerful, highly effective and fully integrated Anti- Defence System (AUDS) to combat the growing threat of malicious micro, mini and larger unmanned aerial vehicles ( ) or drones.
According to Yahoo Finance , the Anti-Defence System (AUDS) integrates the Blighter A400 Series Ku band electronic scanning air security radar, Chess Dynamics’ stabilized electro-optic director, infrared and daylight cameras and target tracking software, and a directional radio frequency (RF) inhibitor/jammer system from Enterprise Control Systems to detect, track, classify, disrupt and neutralize s at ranges of up to 8km. The AUDS system is even effective against so-called Group 1 micro s at ranges of up to 2km and Group 1 mini s at ranges of several kms.
According to the AUDS team, the technology has been extensively tested in South Korea along the 250km demilitarized zone (DMZ), where Blighter radars have been deployed for some years. In March 2015, the AUDS team took part in multi-supplier French Government trials in Captieux, France, where its countersystem proved highly successful in detecting and neutralising a variety of fixed and rotary wing micro, compact and standard s. And last week, the system also performed well in UK Government sponsored counter trials (known as Bristow 15) in West Freugh, Scotland.
The AUDS system is designed for counteroperations in remote border sites or urban areas. It can be operated from fixed locations and from mobile platforms.
