Airbus DS Electronics and Border Security (EBS), future Hensoldt has added a portable jamming system to its family of Counter-UAV products which detects illicit intrusions of small drones over critical areas and offers electronic countermeasures minimising the risk of collateral damage.

After several enhancements, the completed product family now will be christened “Xpeller”. 

“Together with our partners, we have created a modular counter-UAV system which is extremely effective”, said Thomas Müller, CEO of Airbus DS EBS, future Hensoldt.  “Due to its versatility, it is able to offer maximum protection under a variety of conditions and ranges”.

The most recent addition to the “Xpeller” product line is a lightweight jamming system from South African Hensoldt subsidiary GEW Technologies.
