U.S. Navy Sailors Demonstrates Counter-UAS Technologies Aboard USS Shiloh

The U.S. Navy Carrier Strike Group 5 released some footage, Lt. Gian Dabu, from Yokosuka, Japan, and Cryptologic Technician (Technical) 1st Class Brian Fleet, from Mechanicsville, Va., operate a Drone Restricted Access Using Known EW (DRAKE) aboard the Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruiser USS Shiloh (CG 67) in the Philippine Sea. DRAKE demonstrates the feasibility of repurposing mature counter-improvised explosive device technology for interoperable, counter-UAS missions while protecting friendly force communications.

The DRAK) is system, has already been deployed with US troops in Iraq. It disrupts con- a radio-frequency negation system that delivers a non-kinetic, selective trol of the drone, neutralising it so that no remote action, including det- electronic attack of Group 1 drones. DRAKE demonstrated the feasibility onation, can occur, minimising drone damage and risk to public safety of repurposing mature counter-IED technology for interoperable C-UAS. The device uses a non-kinetic solution to defend airspace against small missions while protecting friendly force communications.
