The Russian weapons manufacturer Kalashnikov demonstrated its REX-1 anti-drone gun at the International Military-Technical Forum «Army 2017» expo, at Patriot Park, in Moscow, Wednesday.
Rex-1 is a non-lethal device that works by severing the connection between a quadcopter and its controller, as well as jamming satellite positioning systems, GSM and Wi-Fi signals.
ZALA AERO special project... Еще manager, Nikita Khamitov, explained that the device «suppresses control signals up to a distance of one kilometre.» He went on to note that «if the quadcopter's autopilot has an auto return home function when it loses signal from the controller, we suppress GPS [signal] — GPS, [Global Navigation Satellite System] GLONASS, Baidu and Galileo. In this case, the copter hovers in position and lands automatically».
Rex-1's ability to suppress mobile network signals presumes that the device could be used to secure remotely-detonated explosives. The company also envisages that REX-1 could be used by the public to protect privacy.
