MyDefence has introduced its latest WingMan series of wearable drone detection platform – The WingMan 103 – the most advanced wearable drone detection solution available on the Counter UAS market, said in the announce of the company.
According to the company, the WingMan 103 has been engineered to meet the requirements of elite forces, designed to be the wingman of its operator. With its ultra-light weight and rugged exterior, the WingMan 103 is the only truly wearable drone detection platform that can withstand extreme operational conditions.
“At MyDefence we are constantly trying to push the boundaries of technological development. Our engineers have been able to greatly advance our wearable drone detection and alarm system, and we are proud to introduce the WINGMAN 103 to the world – designed for special operations forces, who demands state-of-the-art Counter UAS technology”, says CEO of MyDefence, Christian Steinø.
The WINGMAN 103 works directly out of the box and is very easy to operate. It is designed to function autonomously, and the internal antennas cover the 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz ISM band and is directional. An external active antenna (AA100) can be added to provide 360o coverage, which can increase the frequency range and cover four different frequency bands (433Mhz, 1.2Ghz, 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz) allowing for greater threat detection of enemy drones. The WINGMAN 103 continuously scans and searches for UAS control and video signals and acts as an early-warning detector of commercial drones. The continuous scanning function makes it capable of detecting the drone control signal and/or video downlink signal – often before the drone takes off from the ground.
The WINGMAN 103 is an all-weather device that can withstand extreme weather conditions. The device is IP67 rated and waterproof with its cover-caps that protect the unused connectors. When a drone is detected, alarms are indicated to the operator with sound, vibration and/or visually with a bright LED. Continuous updates are provided to the drone database with new search filters in order to provide users with the latest technology at all times.
“The WINGMAN 103 has been designed together with special operations forces, making it a truly unique product that takes operational requirements of the end users into account. The result is a ruggeddust- and waterproof wearable drone detection device that provides all-day battery life in all operational conditions – from arctic to desert environments”, says COO of MyDefence, Dan Hermansen.
