A lot of novelties from various manufacturers were presented at the forum "Army-2017". Representatives of Kalashnikov attended the event and demonstrated their developments to visitors. Among other things, the REX 1 electromagnetic gun was designed to destroy unmanned aerial vehicles. The weapon was developed by specialists of Zala Aero Group, which is part of the concern.
This cannon can disable absolutely any drones that are in direct line of sight. The weapon has connectors for the installation of lanterns, sights, targets and other equipment. In addition, it is equipped with a built-in battery that provides continuous and autonomous operation of the gun during three hours .
The REX 1 stuffing also includes a built-in suppression module capable of jamming GPS signals, Russian GLONASS, Chinese BeiDou and European Galileo within a radius of five kilometers, and can also block GSM, 3G, LTE signals and make interference at 900 MHz, 2 , 4, 5.2-5.8 GHz.
The rifle does not damage the apparatus physically, so the lost copter simply falls to the ground.
