The Dronebuster, authorized by the U.S. Department of Defense, boasts impressive capabilities, including the ability to jam commercial satellite navigation frequencies across all four satellite constellations (GNSS). Additionally, the system can disrupt drone radio bands simultaneously with GNSS bands, enhancing its effectiveness in countering diverse threats.

Weighing under 2.1 kg and measuring just 56 cm in length, the Dronebuster offers over 60 minutes of jamming time and over 10 hours of detection, making it a versatile tool for dismounted troops, security teams, and first responders. Notably, its compact design eliminates the need for external power sources or auxiliary equipment, ensuring agility and ease of deployment in various operational scenarios.

The utilization of the Dronebuster underscores the U.S. Army’s commitment to leveraging advanced technology to address evolving threats in the modern battlefield, enhancing the effectiveness and safety of military personnel engaged in critical operations.
