UAVOS Inc. together with MP3 International, a Grade One Group member company, will showcase a variety of their security technologies for uncrewed land and air platforms at the International Defence Exhibition and Conference (IDEX) 2023, Feb. 20-24, at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre.
UAVOS Inc. andMP3 International’s joint exhibit will feature their family of uncrewed jet powered aerial targets Arrow 2 and an improved version of Arrow 3, in addition to an anti-drone laser system.
“For some years, UAVOS has been building partnerships in the Middle East to support developments in the area of unmanned security technology,” said Vadim Tarasov, chief executive, UAVOS. “We look forward to highlighting our expertise in products and solutions that meet critical security challenges.”
Arrow 3 Design and Features
The Arrow 3 has a length of 3.3 m and wingspan of 3.4 m. The target drone is capable of carrying a load of up to 50 kg. Arrow 3 can achieve an operating range of up to 530 km and maximum altitude of 12,000 m. The aerial target drone is powered by a jet engine, which gives the drone an airspeed of up to 520 km per hour. Arrow is launched by a high-performance catapult. Other capabilities of the Arrow 3 UAV include advanced UAVOS’ autopilot system, the ability to operate in GNSS jamming and resist electronic warfare.
It is suitable for simulating the threat of various manned and unmanned systems including fighter jets, uncrewed aerial vehicles (UAVs) and cruise missiles. It supports autonomous operations and can be recovered using a parachute. The performance of the aerial target drone can be changed using different plug-in modules.
Anti-drone Laser System Design and Features
Counter Unmanned Aircraft System offers precise drone detection and tracking performance with an Electro-Optic system.
Besides its detection and tracking capability, the system allows laser neutralization of drones. The system’s efficiency across military and civil applications offers advanced protection for maneuvering forces, border protection, as well as increasingly vulnerable civilian targets like airports and other public facilities.
The laser system’s capabilities allow it to neutralize the target with minimal environmental damage. Unlike rocket weapons as well as small arms, it doesn’t create physical objects that can damage infrastructure and people.
“Grade One Group is proud to continue working with UAVOS on various joint projects that will surely contribute to enhancing regional security. We are looking forward to our mutual participation in Idex 2023 in Abu Dhabi presenting our joint products and continuing our collaboration in the security sector”,- commented Ratko Bozic, Director of Business Development, Grade One Group.
