UK firms unveil anti-UAV defense system

Three British companies have unveiled an anti-UAV system.

The Anti-UAV Defense System (AUDS) was developed by Blighter Surveillance Systems, Chess Dynamics and Enterprise Control Systems.

AUDS includes 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.

AUDS can "detect, track, classify, disrupt and neutralize UAVs at ranges of up to 8 kilometers," according to a Blighter news release. "The AUDS system is even effective against so-called Group 1 micro UAVs at ranges of up to 2 kilometers and Group 1 mini-UAVs at ranges of several kilometers."

The system has already been tested in South Korea along the DMZ.
