Under the influence of Cleanliness, the drone may fall, freeze in place, or return to the take-off point
Ruselectronics, part of Rostec, for the first time demonstrated a compact anti-drone system, Chistyulya. The presentation of the product took place as part of the “Army and Society” conference organized by the Russian Ministry of Defense.
The device is enclosed in a suitcase measuring 34 x 28 x 17 cm and weighs 8 kg. The complex was developed and produced by the Central Research Institute “Cyclone”, which is part of Ruselectronics.
The press service said:
The device completely suppresses the control and navigation channels of aircraft within a radius of up to a kilometer, and also blocks the transmission of photo and video data from the drone. The product is equipped with three types of antennas with separate frequency control, emitting a powerful omnidirectional pulse.
After switching on, the complex generates a uniform signal covering the upper hemisphere within a radius of up to 1000 meters. Under the influence of Cleanliness, the drone may fall, freeze in place, or return to the take-off point. This depends on the type of drone and its settings, as well as the distance of the UAV from the complex and from the control station. “Chistyuli” can be powered either from the mains or from a built-in battery, which provides autonomous operation for 100 minutes. The device is equipped with an active cooling system.
General Director of the Central Research Institute “Cyclone” Alexey Kravchenko said:
Against the backdrop of growing demand for counter-UAV equipment, the holding’s enterprises are actually working “on wheels”, developing new modifications of such equipment. The Chistyulya complex is compact and lightweight – the weight of the wearable set does not exceed 8 kg. The ergonomic parameters and ease of use of the product were confirmed by tactical units during the use of the device in field conditions.
