Meritis, from Switzerland, has included our ELVIRA® Drone Detection Radar in their integrated Drone Defence System.

Their full system combines radar, acoustic sensors, and cameras, for comprehensive detection, tracking and identification. It also comes with a mobile command and control (C2) unit., and a sophisticated drone jamming system is provided to neutralise any detected drones.

The jammers operate with reactive technology, which has a superior performance to only active systems. The range of jamming can be up to 10 times higher compared to only active systems.

Meritis' jammers have a sensor unit observing traffic on pre-defined frequencies. Within milliseconds the system intercepts the total traffic including encoded signals with the full available power. A system only operating with an active mode has to split the overall power capabilities.

Meritis has recently released a new rifle based portable jamming unit as an optional extra for the system.
