Regulus Cyber launches Ring – a revolutionary, next-gen counter-drone/ UAS system using unique GNSS manipulation

For the first time, this combat-proven system disrupts satellite signals to intercept drones, UAS and even swarms, rather than using jamming or cyber-hacking techniques.

Regulus Cyber - a leading expert in software-based GPS/GNSS security -is launching thefirst fully-operational, small-form-factor counter-UAS systemusing unique GNSS manipulation technology to defeat all UAS threats, including swarms, multi-direction attacks, dark drones, manually-piloted drones and 4G/5G drones.

In a timely development given the use of drones to attack tanks in the current conflict, this groundbreaking Ring system uses proprietary, combat-proven GNSS manipulation to take control of the drone and deflect, hold or crash it, or force it to land. Whilst jamming requires several RF channels to be jammed to be successful, andcan therefore inadvertently affect various other systems in the surrounding area, the GPS-disruption approach can be used totarget and neutralize asingle threat, or unlimited threats simultaneously, using very low-power transmission on a single channel, assuring low collateral damage only on the GNSS channel.

The detection capabilities of the field-proven Ring R1 add-oninclude a detection range of up to 1.5 km and fast scanning of the RF spectrum, with minimum dead spots, for coverage that is more scalable and effective than other solutions. It has a minimal false-alarm rate and provides accurate classification of threat types – for example DJI or Parrot – with threat alerts based on profile matches. The Ring R1 is suitable for operation in multi-threat environments, and non-line of sight, bad weather and low visibility conditions.

Already deployed by a leading army across various locations and platforms, the affordable, compact, lightweight and man-portable system is easy to operate and can be deployed and readyin less thantenminutes. "Red Button” effectiveness enablesthe operator to quickly react to any threat in the area using a simple mechanical switch interface, reducing the cognitive load and maintaining focus on the main mission and immediate threats. The high-precision, low-power system has a range of up to 5km in its basic configuration.

Fully compliant with any privacy regulations, such as GDPR, Ring transmits but does not receive or record any target data. The system works out of the box, with no protocol reverse engineering and no whitelisting required. It is capable of manual or automatic operation, C2 based or mechanical, 24/7, and is effective either stand-alone or integrated with any detection system or C2 interface via a simple API. It can be used whilst stationary or on the move, on any relevant platform or location, and creates minimal RF footprint and low collateral damage.

“Drones today are inexpensive, highly available, practical and lethal,” says Yonatan Zur, CEO & Co-Founder of Regulus Cyber. “Droneattacks are difficult to detect or react to. There is a real and pressing need for forces toneutralize drones simply and effectively; we need only look at the current conflict in the Ukraine to see how they are beingused to attack tanks and forces deployed in the field. Regulus has developed a unique technology which, for the first time, can intercept mostunmannedaerial systems, replacing jamming and cyber-hacking, which are complex to operate and might affect other systems and communicationsbeing used by the force. Successfully tested againstover 30 different platforms - including multi rotor and fixed wing, and naval and land-based threats - Ring hasalready been selected bydefense, police, and HLS forces around the world, and has been Battle Proven with excellent performance in real-world conflicts, stopping real-world threats.”
