Teledyne e2v Develops Non-Contact RF Directed Energy Jamming System to Deactivate UAVs
Teledyne e2v, a leading provider of sub-systems and components for Aerospace & Defense applications, has developed RF SafeStop, a state-of-the-art, non-contact radio-frequency directed energy jamming interdiction system. The system is designed to bring moving targets such as UAVs, boats, cars, motorbikes and drones across land, sea, and air to a controlled stop at a safe distance without causing collateral damage.
This RF SafeStop system radiates the radio frequency energy in the direction of target to be disabled. It utilizes a proven technology that generates non-lethal, high-power RF pulses that work against the vehicle’s electronic system to temporarily confuse it and deactivate the engine. It is also capable of jamming the control and command systems of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and drones to either bring them down or safely land them on ground.
Furthermore, it is possible to increase the range at which the vehicles can be stopped by integrating specially designed antennas such as phased array antennas.
