- Purpose-designed multi-band RF inhibitor
- High gain directional antennas to mitigate collateral impact
- Designed to defeat C2 links used by UAS
The AUDS RF Inhibitor is a purpose-designed multi-band system, engineered for maximum effectiveness against UAS command and control (C2) links. RF inhibition can be activated either selectively or simultaneously across the 400 MHz to 6 GHz spectrum, targeting five threat ‘bands’ which are designed to defeat the C2 links commonly deployed throughout the UAS threat landscape (i.e. 433 MHz, 915 MHz, 2.4 GHz, 5.8 GHz and GNSS bands).
The AUDS RF Inhibitor uses software defined radio (SDR) source generation, delivering an inhibition waveform best suited for counter-UAS operations. Changes and new threats may be accommodated under software control.
High gain directional antennas, coaxially mounted with the AUDS EO sensor pod, transmit the inhibition waveforms ensuring that the antennas illuminate the target UAS. The antennas have a nominal 20° beamwidth that provides the designed power density at the target UAS and mitigates collateral impact.
The AUDS Operator Console provides control and configuration:
• Spatially: Directional antennas
• Spectrally: SDR defined threat bands
• Temporally: Duration of operation
• Dynamically: Power level
The AUDS RF Inhibitor operation has maximum system flexibility across complex environments and operating concepts, enabling mitigation of potential collateral impact, by utilising the most appropriate Electronic Attack (EA).
Note: The response of a UAS to RF inhibition is dependent upon its design and manufacture, including the programming of any auto-pilot function and the actions of the UAS operator.
