Effectors: HPEM

The Diehl HPEMcounterUAS source directly impacts the semiconductors of the control electronics inside commercial drones by means of electromagnetic pulses. Whether flying autonomously or radio-controlled, the drone becomes inoperable upon impact of HPEM pulses.

If navigation methods like inertial navigation, infrared homing, optical flow, home on jam, simultaneous localization and mapping are used, jammers cannot affect the drone. In such cases, the HPEM can affect the control electronics, regardless of the control method, and immediately disable the drone.
