Kalashnikov gunmaker creates satellite navigation signal suppressing system for drones


ZALA AERO, part of the Kalashnikov Group, has demonstrated a new device of satellite navigation signal suppression for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) at the Interpolytex-2018 security exhibition, the Kalashnikov press office reported on Wednesday.

"The compact module is placed under an unmanned aerial vehicle’s wing and suppresses the signal of satellite navigation systems within a radius of up to 5km, and also blocks the operation of all devices that use satellite navigational systems for navigation," the Kalashnikov press office said.
The satellite navigation signal suppressing system has been developed for Special Operations forces. The system can be used to neutralize an enemy’s equipment that may pose a threat to defended facilities.
The new system will expand the range of electronic warfare devices developed by ZALA. It comprises the REX-1 anti-drone rifle and the ZONT man-portable device. The new satellite navigation signal suppressing system has undergone successful trials and proven its efficiency.
The Interpolytex-2018 security exhibition runs at the All-Russian Exhibition Center (VDNKh) in Moscow on October 23-26 already for the 22nd time. This year, 46 foreign special equipment producers from Belarus, Germany, Canada and China have filed their bids for participating in the exhibition.
