When you are faced with swarms of drone attacks, defence of the need to work with the understanding that we are each a mini-drone that can self-accept an incoming explosive, a surveillance and “node” for a larger weapons system or even an electronic warfare weapon designed to disrupt the vital systems and command and control.

Defenders are under drone attack, medium-sized and large drones should have recognized that the defense platform, you may be ready to launch missiles, or targets for the long-range-to-surface missiles and air assets, or even the approach of the troops. Modern technology makes it possible for drones to be used in the high-resolution sensors and targeting systems to locate and attack targets at very long distances, thus compounding the threat. Drones are able to operate less and less, and less and less human intervention, and it has to be programmed in order to enter into the enemy’s airspace, crossing into well-defended areas, and with less risk. Many of them are now able to fire weapons with very little human intervention, due to advances in technology and the price.

For example, a Military armored convoy to be a “move to contact” with the enemy, consisting of heavy, medium and light combat vehicles, which are to be supported by dismounted infantry, they can be harmed by a rapidly evolving drone attacks from a variety of angles. It would be a very, very sudden onset, resulting from a concealed location such as behind a mountain. A lot of the counter-drone systems, which are currently being developed by the Army and its industry partners such as Raytheon, have been designed to handle this kind of circumstances, they have been designed for new applications, and to destroy, jam, or disable the enemy drone swarms as their medium, and even large-scale and unmanned aerial systems.

Not only are his attack drones are easy to purchase on the commercial market, but they are quickly becoming more and more sophisticated, given the lightning speed at which technology is moving forward. The videos can be found much better quality at the longer ranges, navigation systems and more accurate to join with the sensors, and targeting technologies, and the increasing numbers of drones are able to operate always in the system, a more co-ordinated way. Battery technology, in order to point to a different example, it’s going to be so fast, that in fact, is to increase the dwell time over targets, complicating any effort to defend against them.


All of which explains why the Army is fast-tracking what could be called an entire region of the counter-drone weapons-these are Electronic-Warfare (EW), innovations in order to fix the enemy drone of a signal to a vehicle-mounted Stinger missiles to shoot drones out of the sky, and also the fast emerging laser weapons. Many of the small and large industry has developed systems are, for example, a portfolio of technologies that are currently being developed by Raytheon, based on the “sentence of the song hit,” transformers: the drone kill chain.

Raytheon’s strategic and tactical approach that makes use of an integrated system of systems to track, target and destroy enemy drones with Stinger missiles and High-powered Microwave weapons, the mini-drones, such as Coyotes — as well as laser weapons, such as the High Energy of the Laser LIGHT.

This approach is consistent with the results of the research carried out in 2018, Defense Science Journal, paper titled “the control of the uavs, The Unit of Study in the field of Military technology.” The essay also sheds light on the increasingly difficult technical task of actually “tracking” of the different kinds of drone attacks, especially the mini-drone attacks.

“The processing of the initial information on the possible location of the the accompanying drawings, it can often be very difficult because of the size of the signals, this information is often only slightly above (or below) the threshold of the future,” the essay states.

This is the reason why the radar and sensors need to be integrated more and more precise, and rapid analysis. This is a challenge made more difficult by the conditions, obscurants, in relation to an uneven surface area, or other air-travel entities, such as small aircraft or even flocks of birds. The return signal from different types of attacks by drones, and can, therefore, magna cum laude, or detection of complications. This specific difficulty has, among other things, inspired by some of Raytheon’s against the drone programs, many of which can be greatly improved by the networking of the sensor, and the radar nodes; Raytheon, systems have been designed with the technical aspects and to network with other sensors and detection of the nodes, such as the operational Network of Radar, the people in charge of the company’s board of directors to explain the difference.

When it comes to the effectors with the aim to defend, “out”, or set it to attack of the drones, in the Defense of Science, Journal essay, cites a number of specific features.

The essay is called what it is called “scatter” technology, such as shotguns, or pellet guns, some bullets, and concentrated beams of electromagnetic energy.” What’s interesting is that the methods that are listed in the results of the study seem to agree with some of the evolving technologies into Raytheon’s programs.


“Scatter,” or an area rug in need of defense are the same as the current use of a firearm or High-Power Microwaves, which is both the fire of hundreds of small interceptors on a per-second is a specific threat to the area, or blast targets with a crippling electro-magnetic energy. These weapons may be on the approach to a “shotgun” type of approach on a larger scale.

There are also more narrowly shot down a rocket interceptors, such as the Stinger missile, and the search for the heat signature of the approach of fact, they — and they can explode. In addition, some types of missiles that can be pre-programmed to the increased dispersion of air burst, the effects to the groups of the attack of the drones. Finally, the essay cites focus on energy, call for the HELL of system to the mind. Lasers, or microwave weapons may be particularly important in urban areas where a lot of “collateral damage” is not an option. In fact, the Defense Science Board, specific mention is made of the unique challenges faced by the urban drone attacks.

Overall, Raytheon engineers describe them in terms of a multi-layered security system, which is the provision of a variety of drone-killing of options, depending on the range and on the control of, the terms and conditions. It may be that, again, the complications to make the lasers difficult to fire, or in densely populated urban areas that require a non-kinetic solution, such as a High-powered Microwave weapons. In the case of an incoming target may be larger, or is likely to be a particular way, it is possible that a Coyote drone, a missile, or even a Stinger, it will be necessary to the defense.

“These technologies are in the kill chain. We’ll start off with a sentence, and to detect, with the aid of our radar, we will use the Command and Control of the brain…and our effectors,” Cliff Johnson, business development director for tactical radars, Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems, said a Warrior.

Interestingly, Raytheon system, has been inspiring a lot of the US military services, and large-scale commercial entities, such as sports stadia or large-scale public places, may be in need of additional protection. These technologies, therefore, are designed to work in both the great war and the weapons and counter-terrorism systems.

In general, Raytheon, war on the enemy’s drones, that can be described in terms of a three-part system: a mobile basis, or a fixed radar systems to detect enemy presence before the signals are analyzed by a computerized fire-control, leading to the firing of a wide range of “effectors” or the method of the destruction of the drones.

“It’s integrated, so we can have different effectors or in the Mines, lasers, high powered microwaves, or coat of arms. We have an architecture that can support all of them. It is a system of systems,” Johnson said.

In a system with the help of this drone is to destroy the technology , as mentioned by Johnson, is a Military program called the Howler; this is specific to the program, now in operation with the armed forces, fire interceptors, such as Raytheon and the Right 1 and 2 of the mini-Coyote-attack drones. Equipped with a more advanced seeker and a small warhead, Coyotes can be able to start from a variety of locations, including the plant sites, and armored vehicles-on-the-move. Coat of arms-Block, I was more of a drone, the form factor, with a coat of arms 2 is more of the missiles, Johnson said.


The Howler system is hinged at Raytheon is the KuRFS, radar, or Ku-band Radio Frequencies. It is a semi-sphere, a 360-degree detection radar, which makes use of a particular technology used to achieve this effect without the rotation, Johnson explained. The KuRFS, it is designed to increase the accuracy, which means that it has been designed in order to distinguish the difference between an individual’s mini-drone swarm and a large, floating, massess, or “blobs,” Raytheon developers, he said. The entire system can be mounted on a vehicle with the Right launch tube, which is in the vicinity of an individual vehicle for command and control. The KuRFS, radar was able to detect the threat, provide the information to a central Command-and-control system for the launch of the coat of arms need to drone on.

Despite the fact that many of these advances and the great promises of the new methods of the drone, the destruction, many yet-t0-be-resolved challenges will present themselves. What if the drone is heat signatures have been eliminated or reduced to create an attack platform for a more stealthy? What if the drone attacks were to be built with radar-absorbing material. What if the sensors and the weapons continued to make use of new technologies to achieve much more? What if the AI is compliant algorithms are allowed to attack from the drones for the detection of a variety of defensive systems and will to change course, to turn away from them. In general, the essay puts it this way:

“If we are to summarize all of the typical technical and tactical characteristics of a flying UAV, we are left with a synergic effect, in the form of a challenge, as no-one else in the air, defenders are standing only a few decades —_
