Portland, Oregon-based Radio Hill Technologies (RHT) has recently completed a contract for sale of a large number of Block 3 Dronebuster hand-held counter- drone detection and jamming system for the US Air Force. Contracting was done via the Air Force’s Installation Contracting Agency at Barksdale, LA with deliveries starting immediately.
This is the third generation of the Dronebuster line of hand-held detection and jamming systems. This model, released on 1 November last year, was tested extensively by the Air Force as part of this competitive contract award. The contract is in excess of $2.5 million dollars. The block 3 includes improved range and reliability over previous models. It has the ability to detect incoming RF signals to aid in aiming the device in low visibility and display that signal strength via LED lights on the control panel. It jams consumer and modified drone radios in the ISM, UHF HAM and GPS bands. The redesigned antenna cluster and amplification network provide directional jamming over longer ranges than any other man-portable system.
The Dronebuster weighs only 5 lbs. with a rechargeable Li-ion battery. Radio Hill’s CEO Jake Sullivan commented: “We are excited to partner with the Air Force to get this easy-to- use capability in the hands of our Air Force Security Forces personnel.”
