The WINGMAN 103 continuously scans and searches for UAS control and video signals and acts as an early-warning detector of commercial drones. The continuous scanning function makes it capable of detecting the drone control signal and/or video downlink signal – often before the drone takes off from the ground.
The WINGMAN 103 is designed to function autonomously, and the internal antennas cover the 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz ISM band and is directional. An external active antenna (AA100) can be added to provide 360° coverage, which can increase the frequency range and cover four different frequency bands (433Mhz, 1.2Ghz, 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz) allowing for greater threat detection of enemy drones.
The WINGMAN 103 is an all-weather device that can withstand extreme weather conditions. The device is IP67 rated and waterproof with its cover-caps that protect the unused connectors. It also has the capability to withstand extreme temperatures from -30°C to +65°C.
With a minimum of 14 hours operational battery life using standard external clip-on batteries (AN/PRC 148-152), it makes it the most versatile and durable WINGMAN yet.
