Experienced in radar and electronic warfare systems, Meteksan Defence has exhibited the FELIX On-The-Move Counter-UAS System, for the first time at IDEF 2023.
The innovative system has been developed in response to the increasing use of mini/micro drones in recent years. The next generation close-range air defense system can detect and jam faster UAVs from higher altitudes with its increased elevation coverage and updated frequency rate.
Designed for the detection, tracking and neutralization of tactical and Kamikaze UAVs, FELIX is thought to be a force multiplier for Turkish security units in the protection of both fixed facilities and VIP/convoy protection, and one of the few UAV defense systems in the world with the ability to operate on the move.
- Retinar AESA radar system developed with AESA/MIMO technology and customized for drone detection
- Electronic Attack System capable of target-specific reactive jamming
- Command and control software
Retinar AESA, the detection and tracking system of FELIX, offers increased tracking performance with high update frequency and high-performance target classification features with low speed sensitivity. Retinar AESA, which can detect and track on the move, can operate 24/7 without being affected by adverse weather conditions.
The Electronic Attack System, another component of the FELIX system, creates a wide protection area thanks to its increased jamming range. With broadband reactive jamming, dynamic spectrum management, and target-specific jamming features, the system provides full protection to security forces on the move.
Selçuk Kerem Alparslan, President of Meteksan Defence, said that FELIX was developed to address the increasing number of mini/micro UAVs and Kamikaze UAV attacks in the world, and emphasized: “I can say that FELIX, which we have developed based on the innovative technologies we have obtained in the field of Radar and Electronic Warfare, is a very effective system against drone and Kamikaze UAV attacks, especially for VIP / Convoy protection. FELIX, which we launched for the first time at IDEF 2023, will achieve significant success not only in Turkey but also in the world market as an innovative product.”
Meteksan Defence will be at Salon 7 | 722A at IDEF 2023 Exhibition, being held between 25-28 July 2023 in Turkey.
