Elbit Systems has been awarded a contract worth approximately $55m to supply ReDrone Counter Unmanned Aerial Systems (C-UAS) to the Netherlands.

The contract, which extends over a period of four years, will see Elbit Systems supply mobile, stationary and deployed configurations of the ReDrone integrated Counter-UAS solution.

The company will also supply a logistic support package and training to use the software and hardware.

Oren Sabag, a general manager at Elbit Systems, said: “The growing threat of drones creates an increasing demand for our Counter UAS solutions. We have leveraged our technology of advanced radar, signal intelligence, electro optic and electronic warfare technologies to develop an advanced, open and future ready solution for this emerging requirement of our customers.

“We are very proud to have been selected by the Netherlands to supply this solution and further strengthen our long term partnership.”

Elbit Systems ReDrone solution

The ReDrone solution is comprised of Elbit Systems’ DAiR Radar, signal intelligence (SIGINT) sensors, and COAPS-L electro-optical (EO) payload, which provide an enhanced integrated aerial picture, along with high-end electronic attack capabilities, all fully controlled by a unified command and control system.

The ReDrone system provides functionalities beyond the common active and passive sensors that enable it to rapidly detect and locate multiple drones simultaneously within the protected area.

The system can detect, identify, locate, track and neutralise hostile UAS during day and night, both in urban and rural environments and under various weather conditions.
