A UAV control system that protects drones from electronic interference is developed by scientists at Innopolis University in Tatarstan, Rusia.
“The system is not afraid of electronic warfare,” Vadim Medvedev, director of the Project Support Fund, told TASS, according to a report the Russian MoD’s TV channel, Tvzvezda.ru.
The high-speed communication channel for UAVs and robotic systems is protected from electronic warfare at a distance of up to 300 km, in the mountains, in open areas and in dense urban areas, the report said.
"It will reduce the development time of new drones by 1.7 times and cut cost by up to 30 percent," said Vadim Medvedev suggesting that the one-size-fits-all anti-EW system can be fitted on to a variety of drones.
"It is designed for various types of unmanned aircraft and operates on a distributed noise-resistant data bus," said Medvedev.
The invention will make it possible to establish mass production of new types of UAVs in Russia. The system will be displayed for the first time at the ARMY 2023 event in Moscow towards the end of August.
