Russia: Kalashnikov unveils REX-1 anti-drone gun at 'Army 2017' expo

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 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.”
