U.S. Navy Sailors held some tests and training with a modern counter-UAS device designed to provide an integrated, layered solution, from sensing to intercept of drones.
The Carrier Strike Group 5 released some footage that shows training with a Drone Restricted Access Using Known EW aboard the Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruiser USS Shiloh (CG 67) in the Philippine Sea.
The Northrop Grumman’s Drone Restricted Access Using Known EW, called a DRAKE, is a radio-frequency negation system that delivers a non-kinetic, selective electronic attack of Group 1 drones.
DRAKE demonstrates the feasibility of repurposing mature counter-improvised explosive device technology for interoperable, counter-UAS missions while protecting friendly force communications.
USS Shiloh is attached to Commander, Task Force 70/Carrier Strike Group 5 conducting underway operations in support of a free and open Indo-Pacific.
