Main Conference Day Two

11:40 AM UAV SUSCEPTIBILITY AND SELF-PROTECTION

  • Proving that RF expendable countermeasures are an effective means to protect UAVs from known threats, through the use of prediction and simulation tools to estimate the UAV RF signature
  • Simulate engagement scenarios with RF and IR trackers and seeker against UAVs and try to break lock using expendable countermeasures
  • Reflect on the payload of the dispensing system to evaluate the chaff and flare mass required to break lock
  • Assess the launching geometry and dictate way to install chaff and flare dispensers on a UAV
