As part of the 30-year anniversary of the founding of the RETIA technology company, and on the occasion of the traditional IDET trade fair, we presented the first Czech comprehensive anti-drone solution, which we now offer under the trade name ReCas.
The threats associated with the operation of unmanned vehicles, such as drones, or waiting ammunition are becoming more sophisticated every day. We have tried to respond to this dynamic development with a solution that will be as comprehensive as possible and thus cover a large number of potential threats associated with unmanned assets in enemy hands.
And so today we come to the market with our own SW solution (so-called C2 or Command and Control), which represents a kind of “central brain” of the entire system, into which individual components (elements) and third parties can be integrated, following specific requirements customer and declared use cases (use cases).
Our complex ReCas anti-drone system therefore represents a modular solution, where the customer has the option of choosing individual components into two basic parts of the system, both the “sensory” part and the “effector” part. The sensor part of the system is used to detect threats and the effector part to eliminate them.
The cornerstone of the sensory part in the case of the ReCas anti-drone system is our 3D ReGuard radar, which is very compact and, thanks to its technical parameters, ideal for long-range drone protection systems. The unique parameters and unprecedented range of the ReGuard 3D radar then guarantee an early warning of an approaching threat and thus give the operator more valuable time (not only) to decide how to react to the detected threat, but also very important time for elimination.
Another integral component within the sensory part is the RF-sensor, which serves to identify the directions and frequencies used by potential threats. (RF radio survey sensor).
The electro-optical sensor then serves to classify and confirm previously detected targets based on optical sensing in day and night mode.
The effector part of the ReCas solution uses standard electronic interference (the so-called soft-kill effector). In our case, we use the integration of the jammer directly on the optical system, thanks to which it is possible to directly monitor the reaction of the UAV to the realized jamming in real time. If necessary, the system can also be extended with means for shooting down the target (hard killing), which are sometimes also called lethal effectors.
