The Teledyne LVSS drone protection system will track up to 500 targets simultaneously
The company Teledyne FLIR Defense (USA), specializing in the development of thermal imagers and sensors, has introduced a mobile suppression system for unmanned vehicles called LVSS. The installation was placed on the chassis of a Ford F-250 truck.
In recent years, emergency situations involving drones operated either by irresponsible owners or in the hands of outright terrorists have become more frequent at many airports.
A variety of means have been developed as means of countering, including conventional shotguns, hunter drones, casting nets, devices that cause radio interference, kamikaze drones and even eagles. LVSS is a much more complex system than all of the above. It is not exchanged for the fight against individual goals. Its TTX allows detecting hundreds of UAVs located from it at a range of up to 3 km and at an altitude of over 450 meters.
LVSS deployment time is less than a minute. During this time, she manages to raise the mast to a five-meter height and turn on the equipment. The folding time of the mast is half a minute. The radar tracks up to 500 targets simultaneously, while its TacFLIR-380HD camera, working in the infrared range, tracks not only enemy drones, but also aircraft with the combined efforts of software, operator and AI.
Teledyne reported that LVSS can neutralize enemy drones at a range of up to 1.5 km using radio pulses with a power of 30 watts. At the same time, the car can move or stand still.
