South Korea’s DUTA Technology – a growing company specialising in wireless communications, special antennas, unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) datalinks, and counter-UAV (C-UAV) systems – is highlighting its proprietary C-UAV solutions with an eye on the Thai and Southeast Asian market.

DUTA Technology’s C-UAV portfolio comprises a comprehensive suite of fixed and portable systems that perform the full range of detection, identification, and neutralisation measures to prevent illegal drone flights in protected airspace. These centre on soft-kill capabilities which disrupt communications and forces intruding drones to land or engage their return-to-launch (RTL) function.

“We have products that easy to carry, products that can be installed in vehicles and buildings, and can be jammed in all directions,” the company told D&S Bilingual Show Daily, pointing out that its jammer solutions are already being supplied to top-tier organisations such as Korean government agencies and the National Police Agency.

It has prepared three of its C-UAV products for Thailand Defense & Security 2022: the portable WILDCAT and PUMA, as well as the handheld WOLF. These are designed to disrupt L-Band (GNSS), S-Band (2.4GHz), and C-Band (5.8GHz) frequency channels. In particular, in case of WILDCAT II, jamming in the UHF-Band(900MHz) is possible.

The first product, WILDCAT, weighs about 2.2 pounds (1kg) and is designed for portability and ease of operation, and is especially suited for mobile applications such as police officers or VIP protective services. The latest PUMA system can also be installed aboard vehicles or on buildings, providing full 360-degree omni-directional jamming capabilities. The latter can be remotely controlled via the supplied tablet PC.

In contrast, WOLF is a handheld jammer – with a rifle-like form factor – suitable for the protection of military installations with its mid- to long-range jamming range.

Currently, a lot of drone-based terrorism is often occurring in places. For preventing them, military and government agencies are preparing the defence and security system in each country.

The company told D&S Bilingual Show Daily that it hopes to address emerging demand from police and military forces in Southeast Asia, including countries such as Thailand and the Philippines.

“We [have] identified some demand about our anti-drone solution from Thai police,” it said. “We are also great interested in the Southeast Asia market and want to participate in the bidding.”
