LYNX ANTI-DRONE SYSTEM

LYNX ANTI-DRONE system is a compact air defence solution against drones/UAV’s that was developed and tested for protection of borders, critical infrastructure, airports, prisons, power plants, etc. LYNX system is a modular system, which means we can add additional components such as additional radars, RF monitoring and mitigation, GPS spoofer, remote weapons station and high- energy laser system (hard-kill solutions) to the system to cover any client requirements.

The basic system configuration consists of four subsystems, a radar, RF detector, long range observation system and high power radio frequency jammer which are able to detect, recognize, identify and soft kill flying objects. System is built to operate 24/7 continuously and it can be installed as fixed, portable or mobile solution. Integrated 3D radar works with the latest generation solid state technology electronic scanning 360 x 90 degrees. RF detector detects and identifies more than 95% of commercially sold drones on the market, long range observation system gives the system long recognition and identification range and the RF jammer is able to soft kill flying objects, it can jam the objects GPS, controls or both.

INTEGRATIONS

  • Multiple Masts (Each Subsystem Uses Its Own Mast-Dead Zones May Occur)

JAMMER

Different types of jammers with different directivity and frequency bands can be used to meet the demands of the customer’s application. Directional jammers are installed on a separate pan-tilt platform that allows synchronous tracking of the target with Electro Optional system. Omni jammers are simpler but they will jam everything in their operational radius. Their jamming range is usually smaller than the one of directional jammer. Multiple jammers can be installed and placed on remote locations not to interface with the rest of electronic equipment.

RF DETECTOR

  • Optimized configuration to allow transportable, flexible and quick deployment.
  • A dome antennae system with ten ports of sector antennae combines into a 360-degree seamless detection.
  • Automatically detect, classify and track drone targets.
  • RF detection provides an indication of the direction of drone controllers and target drones

RADAR

Due to extremely fast airspace scanning rates, the radar can detect any fast-flying objects in very short time. This enables the radar to not only track drones with relatively low speeds, but also UAV, helicopters, planes and other small and fast objects. When radar detects a potential threat, the electro-optical system automatically turns in the direction where the object is located, smart detection function locks on it and follows it. When the target is identified, operators can then decide whether the threat is real and they can enable the jammer to soft kill the target. If the system is installed in a no-fly zone, it can also operate autonomously (the jammer will engage automatically when a threat is detected).

FEATURES

  • solid state technology
  • Real 3D airspace scanning
  • S-band frequency
  • E-scan pulse Doppler operation mode
  • Detection of very small and fast targets

POSSIBLE CONFIGURATIONS

Each radar antenna covers 90° x 90° 3D airspace. Combining four radar antennas gives full 360° e-scan high speed coverage. Full coverage can also be achieved with less than 4 radar antennas (2 or 1) with placing the radar antennas on rotating platform sacrificing some speed.
