Kalashnikov Unveils New Anti-Drone Weapon

by | Sep 6, 2017 | Conspiracy Fact and Theory, Emergency Preparedness, Experts, Headline News | 30 comments


While most western countries are reverting back to medieval technology to combat the use of drones, legendary Russian arms manufacturer Kalashnikov, makers of the AK series, has developed an advanced anti-drone gun. Drones are now becoming more widely available, therefore, anti-drone technology is becoming a major field in the defense industry.

Of course, Kalashnikov is leading the pack in anti-drone warfare. Built on the MP-514K rifle system, the fully modular device comes equipped with interchangeable jamming units, which disrupt GPS, GLONASS, WiFi, and other electronic and radio signals, rendering drones inoperable. Due to its ability to block phone signals, the device also can be used to prevent remote detonation of improvised explosives.

Meet the REX-1.

For the first time in Russia, Kalashnikov Concern, the largest arms manufacturer in the country, showed off its electromagnetic anti-drone rifles at the Army-2017 expo in the Moscow Region. Prototypes of the REX-1 are also undergoing tests in some subunits of the Russian National Guard.

The gun has some fascinating features which makes it extremely effective. It is able to “fire” continuously for four hours. It can then be recharged for four hours using an ordinary 220-volt socket, or it can be connected to an additional battery for uninterrupted use. And, according to Nikita Khamitov, head of the special projects department at Zala Aero Group – the company that developed the new weapon and is part of Kalashnikov Concern, it’s possible to change each component in a matter of seconds, just like changing the magazine on an assault rifle.

“This radiomagnetic ‘gun’ suppresses the command and control channels of the world’s most commonly encountered drones. It’s also installed with a number of interchangeable electromagnetic and infrared units that suppress GSM, GPS, GLONASS, Galileo [the last three are various types of satellite navigation systems – RBTH], and other channels,” said Khamitov. -RBTH

Drones generally have two default modes in case communication is lost with the operator.  They will either return to the start point or automatically land. “In the latter case the drone will disappear from enemy radars, and you effectively have a new toy in your hands,” Khamitov added. “A particular feature of the device is the possibility of not just neutralizing unmanned aerial vehicles but also explosive devices triggered by remote control – via a phone call or text message, as one sees in films. The gun shuts out all external signals and gives the combat engineer group time to arrive on the spot and completely eliminate the threat,” Khamitov said.

And it’s possible you could end up getting your hands on a REX-1 too.  Well, the civilian version, anyway.  According to Khamitov, a version of the gun could definitely be designed for the civilian market. Or course, not all its functions would be made available. For instance, in the civilian version, the GPS neutralizing device would not be included.

The price of the weapon will be determined when the subunits of the Federal National Guard Troops Service decide the number they want to procure. “Looking at the market, I think the civilian version of our system could cost around $5,000,” Khamitov said.

      For all us poor folk. We need to come up with a simple RF jammer. I remember when my brother was using a linear on his CB. We could hear him on the phones, the TV’s, and radios. Make enough noise and the drone will loose communication.

      Along those lines, I’d like to see a USB radar system.

        i would love to have one so i can shut down people texting and driving.

        How about an ethernet/networked radar? Several manufacturers of marine products have them. Garmin, Raymarine/Flir, Simrad…… Easily interfaced into a residential pc network as well. My field. Hell, it is possible to view whatever you see on a purchased display on your darned iPhone if you wish.

        Don’t mean to offend anybody but if you are bleeding over the phone / tv / radio you are using a cheap system and / or the antenna is not set up correctly. I know people putting out thousands of watts and not bleeding on anything, just talking a long way.
        Your next problem is even if you deliberately set up your system to get maximum interference you will not be able to get the height / distance you need for a drone.
        I am sure it could be done on the cheap. You just need somebody with electronic know-how, time, and finances to get it rolling. Good luck. Please share. It would be awesome to defend against the sky.

      Remember friends, in most cases you don’t need to defeat the drone, just the drone operator. Keep on the clock y’all.

      lol probably a spoof video

      who’s to say that the quadracopter pilot wasnt the one lowering it to the ground?

      no proof in this video they work

      and these arnt “Drones”, people .. they are toys called quadracopters

      the Predator Drone ..is the one I want to see taken control of with this toy , or its a fake!

      A $200 12 gauge and some #6 3″ magnum birdshot way cheaper.

        most here might also say “more fun too.”

    11. ronna

      Those are “toy” drones available to anyone. Battelle here in the USA has had the identical device available for about two years now.
      The military drones are controlled by signals from military space satellites. On frequencies nobody knows. Their GPS control comes with the control signals, not directly from the GPS satellites (like the toys) that use common GPS frequencies. Can’t jam that! Don’t be too quick to discount our military stuff! It is really good! The tanker collisions were caused by incompetence of the crew, not jammers.

      never underestimate you enemy’s !

    13. Asshat

      This might work on the toy drones civies can get. It won’t work in a military one that has stealth technology. Propaganda.

    14. Willy Hunter

      You can buy a 12 guage and some high power bird shot for a lot less than $5000!

    15. 2ifbyC

      I’ll keep my $5k for a underground storage container. Good old fashioned 12ga works well for these little drones. Ammmo is cheap as well.

    16. Brian

      I can see where drones would be useful in SHTF situations for a community especially. Most of these things are either toys or are being used by voyeurs.

      NASA has issued an update on the X-Class Flares. Expect the first geomagnetic storm to be stronger and arrive sooner. They can interact so that subsequent CMEs can accelerate prior CMEs resulting in more powerful geomagnetic storms. You can time an EMP attack to coincide with a powerful Solar-caused geomagnetic storm to make it even stronger. Really bad news.

      The “old” anti-drone technology works just fine.
      It’s called a 12 gauge.
