Discover how Alaris Antennas is assisting in the development of counter UAS antennas

In the modern age of technology, Unmanned Aircraft Systems are becoming an increasing threat. Alaris Antennas are continuing to develop Direction Finding antennas to assist in the C-UAS industry.

We have come a long way from the Aerial Target (a small radio-controlled aircraft) which was first tested in March 1917 during the First World War. Today, new technology ensures that drones are here to stay and increase in importance for Homeland Security, military and electronic warfare endeavours especially.

According to research conducted by Teal Group: “It is estimated that military UAS procurement spending will increase from the current worldwide level of almost $10.6 billion annually in 2021 to $13 billion in 2030, totalling $123.1 billion over the next ten years.”

Available from APC Technologies, Alaris Antennas has a large number of antennas which can be used for counter-UAS solutions. The products include linear and circular polarised antennas with various options for sensing, jamming and direction-finding applications. The products are designed for use in mobile, base station, and man-portable applications.
