    Advancing Polish Radar Technology in Drone Defense

    Cutting-edge Polish radar technology defends against drones, endorsed by Ukrainian military. Offers opportunities for international collaboration.

    Poland’s Advanced Protection Systems SA pioneers cutting-edge drone defense systems, leveraging proprietary radar technology. Their SKYctrl systems, powered by FIELDctrl 3D MIMO radars, effectively detect, classify, track, and neutralize unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Utilizing AI algorithms, the device autonomously distinguishes drones from birds.

    Ukrainian Military Endorsement:
    Ukraine’s armed forces commend the efficacy of SKYctrl, stating it as their best-used system. Its range surpasses specifications, detecting UAVs and distinguishing them from birds.

    Challenges from Russia:
    The surge in drone warfare poses threats, with inexpensive armed UAVs targeting critical infrastructure and military bases deep within Ukraine. Such conflicts affect entire nations and necessitate innovative defense solutions.

    Opportunity for the Polish Defense Industry:
    Poland’s defense industry stands poised to promote innovative and cost-effective solutions like SKYctrl C-UAS systems. Already integrated into the Polish Armed Forces, they present an attractive proposition for NATO allies.

    International Collaboration and Development:
    APS products are being deployed in NATO member states, emphasizing interoperability. SKYctrl systems are designed with an open architecture, facilitating seamless integration with other defense systems, aligning with initiatives like the European Sky Shield Initiative (ESSI).
