PITBULL, A Wearable UAS Jammer From MyDefense

Designed to be used in conjunction with the MyDefense WINGMAN series of drone detectors, the PITBULL jammer works against commercially available Unmanned Aerial Systems which have been adopted by threat forces due to their widespread availability. These UAS are used for reconnaissance, and with simple modifications, can be turned into smart weapons, utilizing terminal guidance or preplanned flight routes.

It will function either autonomously (when drones are detected by the WINGMAN) or manually (constant jamming), and the internal directional antennas cover the 2.4GHz, 5.8GHz and GNSS frequency bands. With its directional antennas, the PITBULL is capable of jamming a malicious drone at the distance of 1000 meters. An external active antenna will be made available to cover additional frequency bands.

Additionally, it can be mounted to PALS platforms.

    This is pretty interesting from an airfield defense perspective. I’ll definitely be researching this.

      This is the first actual solid, well developed counter-UAS system I’ve seen. Excellent if it works as designed.

        And what qualifies your opinion? A dji phantom is running freq hop, spread spectrum. I’m somewhat skeptical of the posted jamming range.

    If it blocks cellphone service I can see a huge opportunity in Miami traffic ?
