Turkey’s first manufacturer of electromagnetic anti-drone sounding systems Harp Arge introduced its new lightweight, drone-fighting system, called “ES-60 Electromagnetic Drone Savar”. It is made using the latest antenna technology, which reduced size and weight. The ES-60, an electromagnetic shotgun, is designed to create high-speed electromagnetic interference to disrupt communication between drones and their control units and cause enemy devices to malfunction. The firm added that the jamming weapon is produced using more than 70% of locally sourced content and would only be provided to government agencies as per weapons regulations.
The new ES-60 Electromagnetic Drone Savar gun has a weight of 2.5 kg and is capable of enemy drones within 3 kilometers. The company said the newly installed antenna technology allowed it to significantly reduce the size and weight of the weapon. The firm also added that these weapons are made using more than 70% of local raw materials and will only be provided to government agencies in accordance with weapons regulations. The new ES-60 Electromagnetic Drone Savar is an effective solution in the fight against the drone since it does not harm human health and environmental safety and produces a silent and fast result.
Harp Arge said they had been working on the design and prototyping of an anti-drone gun for a long time but that its production was made possible only after it was acquired by Istanbul-based Ekba Holding last week. The company has now been included in the Cemd Defense Corporation group that operates as part of the Ekba Holding and will start mass production of the ES-60 after establishing its assembly line. Harp Arge focuses on meeting the Turkish military’s need for unmanned systems, electronic warfare and robotics. The first exports of the weapon were made to Azerbaijan after successful tests by the country’s military in 2017.
