New Pitbull jamming device combats drone swarms

Fredensborg, Denmark

Five drone operators attempted to execute a coordinated drone attack during a demonstration, and the coordinated attack was effectively neutralised using the Mydefence Pitbull Counter UAS jammer.

Mydefence recently co-hosted the Electric Storm event to demonstrate the capability of the latest Mydefence Counter UAS products for dismounted soldiers. The event featured a live demonstration of the detection and jamming capabilities of the Wingman 103 drone detector and the Pitbull Counter UAS jammer.

Last month, Dedrone announced the capability to detect drone swarms, and assuming the same conditions, Mydefence is now announcing drone swarm jamming capability, as demonstrated at Electric Storm. During the event, five drone operators attempted to execute a coordinated drone attack. The coordinated attack was effectively neutralised using the Mydefence Pitbull Counter UAS jammer, and all drone operators lost control of their drones.

“Drone swarms are a concern in the military domain and it has been a priority for us to provide an effective solution to combat multiple drones for both dismounted soldiers and in fixed installations. With the Wingman and Pitbull setup, we have demonstrated just that, and the system will be able to defeat countless drones simultaneously,", says Christan Steinø, CEO of Mydefence.

The Pitbull Counter UAS jammer is an ideal solution for dismounted soldiers operating in hostile environments, where enemy forces utilise commercially available drones for reconnaissance and as weapon delivery systems.

The device is wearable and weighs only 775 grams. Used in conjunction with the Wingman drone detector, the Pitbull can automatically jam drone signals, when a drone is detected. This reduces the cognitive load of the operator, allowing the soldier to focus on the mission, without worrying about enemy drones.
