Plextek wins D&S accelerator contracts to defend against hostile drones
“Plextek has been awarded two contracts under the £2 million Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) competition to develop new capabilities to detect, disrupt and defeat the hostile and malicious use of drones.
Both contracts build on Plextek’s research and experience in Low Size Weight and Power (SWaP) radio systems. The first project focuses on the development of an innovative signal detection and jamming capability to detect and defeat hostile drones, while ensuring that non-hostile systems in the vicinity are not affected. For the second project, Plextek-DTS will develop a miniature radar that can be integrated into airborne drones in order to detect, track and accurately target hostile drones.”
