Earlier this month MyDefence successfully demonstrated its lightweight, wearable counter swarm UAS detect and jam devices, the Wingman 103 and the Pitbull. During the demonstration, five drone operators attempted to execute a coordinated attack and all of them lost control of their vehicles.

MyDefence CEO Christian Steino said the system is able to defeat “countless drones simultaneously.” The company claims its product is the only wearable counter-UAS jammer on the market. Features include a weight of 775 grams (without the battery), up to 20 hours of standby time, two hours of continuous jamming time, automatic and manual jamming modes, a jamming range up to 1,000 meters, power output of 2 Watts, and programmable software that can be tailored to specific drone types, distances, and jamming ranges.

Used in conjunction with the Wingman drone detector, Pitbull automatically jams drone signals when a drone is detected, allowing the wearer to focus on his mission without concern for enemy drones, the company said.
