          • Būtų puiku naudoti tokius su NASAMS, bet...matyt.... nebus.

            During the Air Defence Systems Group event 2021 organized by Rheinmetall, the German company has demonstrated a truck-mounted version of the Skynex Air Defense System fitted with an Oerlikon 35mm Revolver Gun Mk3. The Rheinmetall Skynex air defense system has demonstrated its ability to engage and destroy a swarm of eight small drones using the Oerlikon 35mm Revolver Gun Mk3.

            The Skynex® is the latest air defense concept of Rheinmetall and sets new standards with its unique and open architecture. The system includes the Oerlikon Skymaster® Command & Control System and the Oerlikon Revolver 30mm Gun Mk3. Other equipment and weapon systems can be connected to the Skynex including the Oerlikon X-TAR3D Tactical acquisition radar, Oerlikon 35mm Twin Gun GDF009 TREO, the Oerlikon Laser Gun and the new Denel Cheetah C-RAM (Counter-Rocket, Artillery, Mortar) missile.

            The Oerlikon 35mm Revolver Gun Mk3 used with the Skynex air defense system has an effective range of 4,000 meters and has a rate of fire of 1,000 rounds per minute. The gun module is fitted with an X-Band tracking radar that allows an autonomous sector search function which makes target designation simple, fast and reliable. Tracking and engagement is calculated and executed automatically by the integrated fire control processor. The target designation and engagement is overwatched and checked by the Oerlikon Skymaster® Command & Control System which can be remotely controlled from another position.

            The Oerlikon Skymaster® is a versatile command and control (C2) solution for different levels of command that significantly enhances ground-based air defense operational capabilities. Its main operational benefits are the display of a common comprehensive air picture based on all available information sources, an effective real-time threat evaluation and smart weapon assignment algorithm, heterogeneous weapon systems coordination and fire control in a flexible system architecture.

            The Skynex can also use the X-TAR3D three-dimensional tactical acquisition radar operating in the X-band and performing the functions of short-range search, detection, acquisition, tracking, classification and identification of air targets, enabling it to supply a three-dimensional local air picture to the command and control network as well as to track threat data for cueing fire control systems. The radar is specifically designed for maximum effectiveness against a wide array of air threats, ranging from conventional air-breathing targets (fixed-wing, helicopters) to low and very low cross-section objects such as stealth and unmanned targets (UAVs, cruise missiles), as well as rockets and mortar rounds (C-RAM capability).

         ne tiek kiek raketos.

                  o dėl labai artimo nuotolio ( šiaip apie 3 km nėra taip mažai) tai čia gi pliusas. Aš gi rašiau, kad su NASAMS


                  • The M-LIDS is based on an M-ATV 4x4 armored vehicle equipped with the Coyote Block2+ counter UAS solution, 30mm automatic cannon, one 7.62mm coaxial machine gun, KuRFS precision targeting radar and the Ku-720 mobile sensing radar. (Picture source Raytheon video screenshot)

                    During the event, American company Raytheon has conducted live firing tests with the Coyote Block 2+ with KRFS (Ku-band Radio Frequency System) radar mounted on M-ATV 4x4 armored vehicle, as part of Fixed Site and Mobile LIDS (Mobile-Low, Slow, Small Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Integrated Defeat System) for counter UAS (Unmanned Aerial System).

                    The M-LIDS is a mobile counter-UAS solution based on the M-ATV armored vehicle fitted with a weapon station equipped with a Coyote container launcher unit able to launch counter unmanned air system (C-UAS) capability to intercept other small UAVs. The turret also includes one 30x113mm XM914 chain gun and one 7.62mm coaxial machine gun.

                    The tests used Coyote® interceptor variants with the KuRFS precision targeting radar and the Ku-720 mobile sensing radar, to detect and defeat all drone swarms varying in size and range.

                    The Coyote Block 2 is a rail-launched surface-to-air missile (SAM) being developed for the US Army through the Defense Microelectronics Activity (DMEA). The U.S. Army has selected the Coyote drone for a near-term counter-UAS solution. Equipped with an advanced seeker and warhead, the Coyote-enabled system can successfully identify and eliminate threat UAVs.

                    The Coyote can be deployed from the ground, air, or a ship. The Coyote UAS can be flown individually or netted together in swarms, and it is adaptable for a variety of missions including surveillance, electronic warfare, and strike. The system will operate for up to one hour and is designed for interchangeable payloads.

                    The Coyote Block 2+ with KRFS (Ku-band Radio Frequency System) radar and the Ku-720 mobile sensing radar, is able to detect and defeat all drone swarms varying in size and range. Working in conjunction with the Forward Area Air Defense Command and Control, the KuRFS family of sensors provides a local integrated air picture, assuring manned aircraft safety of flight throughout all Coyote interceptor engagements.

                    The Ku-720 radar is a scaled version of KuRFS, specifically designed for highly mobile operations. The radar reduces the size, weight and cost of the currently deployed KuRFS, while retaining its same proven technology for surveillance, threat detection, identification, and tracking.

                      MBDA further details its Sky Warden C-UAS system


                      By Joseph Roukoz

                      With the drone threat increasing both in the civil as well as in the military domain, MBDA leveraged its know-how in air defence solutions to develop an integrated system capable to deal with Class 1 drone but not only, as it is also open to modules allowing dealing with higher level threats.

                      A press conference was set up to update the media on MBDA’s Sky Warden solution, first unveiled at IDEX 2021. The European missile company acts as the system integrator of Team Sky Warden, MBDA having understood very well since inception that a solution against unmanned air systems cannot be found using a single type of sensor or effector. Beside MBDA Team Sky Warden includes CerbAir, a specialist in drone detection and neutralisation, KEAS, specialised in jammers, Cilas, active in the laser domain, Teledyne e2v, specialized in RF technologies with its Safe Stop Air capable to stop a UAV at 400 meters distance of using a 1m2 antenna, Saab with its Giraffe G1X radar, and Openworks providing its SkyWall net-based system for capturing drones. As for MBDA, the company provides the Licorne command and control system, a remote electro-optical sensor, a hard kill drone which details were not unveiled, and the Mistral VSHORAD surface-to-air missile system.

                      Detecting the drone is the first issue, and to this end radar, electro-optic and electronic warfare sensors are used, each solution having strengths and weaknesses, using all of them allowing compensating and ensuring maximum reliability. Gathering all information and elaborating them, exploiting algorithms based on Artificial Intelligence, allows identifying the single drone, assessing the potential threat, would it be a single item or a swarm of drones.

                      It is now time to neutralise the threat. How to do it depends very much on the scenario, as a solution viable for a military forward operating base in the desert cannot definitely be used to cope with a threat around a football stadium, in the middle of a town.

                      Different options are this provided by the Sky Warden. The first one is to jam the link between the drone and the ground control station, which usually brings either the drone to land or to go back to base, in that case allowing to acquire the location of the GCS and eventually permitting to apprehend the pilot. A second option is to launch a counter-UAS drone fitted with optronic sensors that allow it to acquire the enemy drone and neutralise it with a direct hit, exploiting kinetic energy for destroying the threat. A third option is provided by a high-energy laser, which would destroy the electronic circuits of the drone.

                      As with the sensors, also effectors have good and bad points, depending on the type of threat and on the scenario, a direct energy weapon such as a laser can hardly be used in urban areas, thus the availability of different options should ensure an overall coverage against current threats. However the Sky Warden is modular, and as new threats might emerge, new sensors and effectors might well be integrated into the system.

                      While the system was designed to cope with Class 1 drones, MBDA does not exclude the ability to neutralise threats belonging to higher classes, and in that case it proposes the integration of its ground-based surface-to-air missiles, such as the Mistral VSHORAD or the MICA SHORAD systems.

                      As said the Sky Warden is fully modular, therefore a customer can pick-up the subsystems of choice in order to tailor the overall system to the threat he needs to face. On the MBDA site at the Plessis-Robinson, on the outskirts of Paris, it was possible to see the Sky Warden installed over a Sherpa 4×4 armoured vehicle provided by Arquus, which roof was full of subsystems, although not all those aforementioned were present.

                      At the corners we could find four AESA antennas, apparently MHR RPS-42 from Rada of Israel, each covering 90°, capable to detect a nano-UAS at 5 km and a medium-size UAS at 25 km range. These can be replaced by Saab Giraffe G1X radar that might also be installed on the roof, on a telescopic mast. At the centre a mast was carrying the HELMA-P middle power laser weapon from CILAS, capable to neutralise a drone at over 1,000 meters and damage its optics at 3 km. Between the two forward antennas we find a Hornet Lite remotely controlled weapon station armed with a 7.62 mm machine gun; such a weapon doesn’t fit into the C-UAS scenario, but this might indicate a possible evolution of that turret into a C-UAS system. It can also be replaced by the Openworks SkyWall net system. At the back of the vehicle we find the container/launchers of the hard-kill UAV, while the passive RF suite and the jammers were not installed. The Mistral missile system was installed on a second vehicle.

                      First unveiled at IDEX, aiming at the export market, the Sky Warden is the base of the system promoted by a consortium including MBDA together with Naval Groupe and Hologuarde which is competing for the PARADE French anti-drone system, a bid launched by the Direction Générale de l’Armement (DGA), the French Defence acquisition directorate being expected to announce the winning team in the first half of 2022. The programme foresees a € 350 million investment in 11 years, to counter the drone proliferation in the hexagon, a parliamentary report saying that compared to the 4 00,000 civilian drones that were flying in France in 2017, four years later that figure reached 2.5 million. One of the aims of the Parade programme is to provide an effective anti-drone system to be used during the Olympic Games 2024 that will take place in Paris and neighbouring areas.

                      MBDA is also involved in the European JEY-CUAS (Joint European sYstem for Countering Unmanned Aerial Systems) programme, which was selected among the many proposals as part of the European Defence Industrial Development Programme (EDIDP) 2020. With a total cost of € 15,003,473.08, the European Union proves a maximum contribution of € 13,500,000.00. The programme sees the participation of 38 European companies, MBDA being the third contributor, after Leonardo and Indra. A study and design project, the JEY-CUAS has a duration of 24 months and aims at developing a new generation modular and flexible C-UAS system which plug and play capability will allow easy reconfiguration to cope with the evolving threat.

                        Anduril's Sentry tower participates in the Air Force's Advanced Battle Management System's on-ramp event at White Sands Missile Range, N.M., in 2021. (Courtesy of Anduril Industries)

                        Anduril’s family of systems designed to counter drone threats is run by the Lattice operating system and includes its Sentry tower and the small unmanned aerial system Anvil. The system also brings in “best-of-breed” third-party sensors and effectors “for a layered defensive approach,” according to the company.

                        The Lattice system is able to provide autonomous detection, classification and tracking of targets at the edge of the battlefield and alerts users to the detected threats. It also prompts users with solutions to engage and destroy the threats, the company described.

                        The Sentry tower is comprised of an onboard radar and optical sensors within embedded computing cores that can process data through machine-learning algorithms to detect, identify and track threats.

                        Anduril said it will deliver capability through “traditional means,” but will also deploy the capability as a service and configure the system to carry out specific missions as threats evolve or new threats emerge. And under the contract, it must design, prototype and develop new counter-UAS technology.

                        “Anduril’s software-first approach and its open and interoperable Lattice operating system enables sensor modularity and massive scalability,” the statement said. “As the SIP, Anduril will maintain continuous system updates, develop and deploy new capability, and integrate best-in-class third-party sensors and effectors, future-proofing deployed systems at no additional cost to the customer.”
