Dubai-based Cusp Technologies has developed a new application based on magnetic beams with capability to repel hostile drone attacks according to a report by UAS Vision. The system uses advanced magnet technology to create a ‘magnetic shield’ to repel hostile drone attacks, which are either directed remotely, or have pre-programmed routes.
The report, originally published by Gulf News, says the technology provides the potential to expand defense capabilities and create a magnetic shield that can counter any kind of military attacks. “Drones widespread in the past few years, so the risks that these aircrafts pose have increased. This could cause damage to the main infrastructure, and paralyze both trade and travel in many countries,” said Mohamed Saleh, founder and chairman, Cusp Technologies.
He added that the company has conducted a recent study to develop technology and systems that enhance the capabilities of countering the attacks of these aircrafts. It concluded that magnetic beam techniques can be used in the applied and military fields, as these technologies are designed to protect certain areas, pointing out that the features of these technologies is the result of 5 years of research, and hard work. Saleh confirmed that another research study is currently being conducted in cooperation with a specialized American company, in order to increase the effect of the magnetic beam to a range of up to 100 km.
The new technology is scheduled to be displayed on a special platform that will be launched during IDEX 2021 and NAVDEX 2021 exhibitions in February in Abu Dhabi.
