European Military Bases to Get Sentrycs’ Cyber-Based Anti-Drone Solution

Israeli tech firm Sentrycs Ltd. has been awarded multiple contracts to deploy its cyber-based radio frequency counter-drone solutions to various military bases in Europe.

The move aims to mitigate threats from small drones conducting intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance missions over sensitive sites.

Sentrycs’ anti-drone solution employs proprietary protocol analysis technology to passively detect drones, track their movements, and identify their model and serial number.

It can also accurately distinguish a friendly drone from a hostile one.

Sentrycs did not disclose the total value of the contracts and which country awarded them.

Deployment Options

Undisclosed military bases in Europe may deploy Sentrycs’ counter-unmanned aerial system (c-UAS) tech as a standalone system for more secure operations.

It can also be fielded as an integral part of a layered c-UAS solution to enable the more efficient neutralization of enemy drones.

Either mode will allow the solution to disrupt drones classified as “threats” and land them in a predefined zone.

Sentrycs chief executive Yoav Zaltzman said the “field-proven” counter-drone tech is designed to quickly adapt to the fast-changing threat environment.

“Winning these projects signifies a meaningful market recognition of Sentrycs’ unique capabilities and technology leadership,” he stressed. “We are proud to contribute to the security of our allies with our advanced counter-drone solutions.”

Increasing Threats

The contracts were awarded amid the proliferation of drone threats due to multiple geopolitical conflicts.

US forces in the Middle East have been targeted by missile and drone attacks, killing three American soldiers in Jordan in January.

In Europe, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has evolved into a war with thousands of unmanned systems being used to gain an upper hand.

Apart from the deployment of Sentrycs’ c-UAS system, Poland, Lithuania, and other NATO members neighboring Russia have agreed to build a “drone wall” to defend against “provocations.”
