Airbus DS Electronics and Border Security adds Portable Jammer to its Innovative ‘Xpeller’ Counter-UAV Product Family

Airbus DS Electronics and Border Security (EBS), future HENSOLDT, has added a portable jamming system to its family of Counter-UAV products which is able of detecting the illicit intrusions of small drones over critical areas and offers electronic countermeasures minimising the risk of collateral damages.

“Together with our partners, we have created a modular counter-UAV system which is extremely effective”, said Thomas Müller, CEO of Airbus DS EBS, future HENSOLDT. “Due to its versatility, it is able to offer maximum protection under a variety of conditions and ranges,” he added.

The most recent addition to the ‘Xpeller’ product line is a lightweight jamming system from South African HENSOLDT subsidiary. The system offers very high effectiveness by combining sensor data from different sources with latest data fusion, signal analysis and jamming technologies. It uses radars, optical and other sensors to detect and identify the drone and assess its threat potential at ranges from a few hundred metres up to several kilometres depending on the type of drone. Based on an extensive threat library and real-time analysis of control signals a jammer then interrupts the link between drone and pilot and/or its navigation. The modular ‘Xpeller’ system concept relies on the selection of individual devices from the product family depending on customer requirements and local conditions.

The name ‘Xpeller’ derives from the verb ‘to expel’ signifying the system’s capability to protect critical installations by driving away hostile vessels. ‘Xpeller’ has been tested extensively at future HENSOLDT’s own premises and during customer presentations in Germany, France and Switzerland. An operational system is available on the market with delivery time depending on the required configuration.

The christening of the ‘Xpeller’ product family took place at CES Las Vegas on January 6.
