The Indian Army recently unveiled a novel Hybrid Anti-Drone System at the Inno Yodha 2023 event in New Delhi, showcasing its commitment to staying at the forefront of counter-drone technology. This innovative system has been integrated into the upgraded ZSU-23-4 Shilka self-propelled anti-aircraft guns (SPAAGs), further enhancing their capabilities.
This hybrid system combines various technologies to effectively detect, track, and neutralize drones in the battlefield. It utilizes a combination of radar, electro-optical sensors, and radio frequency jammers to provide a comprehensive defense against aerial threats.
The system features two anti-drone guns mounted on top of the existing 4 x 23mm gun mount of the ZSU-23-4 Shilka SPAAG. This integration adds a layer of direct counter-drone firepower to the system, allowing for precise and rapid engagement of aerial targets.
The ZSU-23-4 Shilka SPAAG itself has been upgraded with modern electronics and targeting systems, further enhancing its effectiveness against drone threats. This modernization program ensures that the platform remains a potent asset in the Indian Army’s arsenal.
The rise of drone warfare necessitates effective countermeasures. This Hybrid Anti-Drone System demonstrates the Indian Army’s proactive approach to addressing emerging threats. By incorporating advanced technology and adapting existing platforms, the Army is ensuring its preparedness against future challenges.
Benefits of the System:
This Hybrid Anti-Drone System offers several advantages:
- Improved Detection and Tracking: The combination of radar and electro-optical sensors provides comprehensive detection and tracking of drones, even in low-visibility conditions.
- Effective Neutralization: Radio frequency jammers can disrupt the communication and control of drones, effectively disabling them.
- Direct Firepower: The anti-drone guns provide a direct and precise means to destroy drones that pose a threat.
- Enhanced Operational Capabilities: The integration of this system on the upgraded ZSU-23-4 Shilka SPAAG offers a mobile and flexible counter-drone platform.
