ESG to protect ILA 2018 against drones with GUARDION

ESG’s modular Counter-UAS System GUARDION has been established as an integral part of the security infrastructure of large scale political events.

20.04. 2018

The modular Counter-UAS system GUARDION will be integrated into the security architecture of the police authorities during ILA Berlin 2018, thus ensuring effective protection against the dangers of the unauthorised operation of drones.
GUARDION, the Counter-UAS solution of ESG and and its cooperation partners Rohde & Schwarz and Diehl Defence is based on the mission-proven system used to secure major political events such as the G20 summit in Hamburg in 2017, the state visit of President Obama in June 2016 and the G7 summit in Elmau in 2015.

The ESG portfolio includes the selection and integration of high-performance sensors, the optimized operational picture and situation awareness via ESG’s Command & Control system TARANIS® and the connection to existing IT networks and infrastructure. As a result, GUARDION offers scalable solutions adapted to the individual requirements of customers and scenarios for detecting and countering drones in stationary, mobile or deployable configuration.

In addition to the products and solutions of the GUARDION cooperation partners which were approved in multiple missions, such as RF analysis, direction finding and Smart Jamming with R&S®ARDRONIS by Rohde & Schwarz, further high-performance sensors and effectors of renowned German and European technology companies will be deployed due to the specific security requirements in Berlin.
One of these GUARDION Selected Suppliers is OpenWorks Engineering which, with its SkyWall100 net launchers, extends the GUARDION system by a physical countermeasure deploying parachute-secured nets.
All of the deployed technologies and products will be integrated, fused and coordinated with ESG’s state-of-the-art Command & Control system TARANIS®.

Further information about GUARDION can be obtained during ILA Berlin in Hall 2, Stand No. 225 as well as at ILA Plaza Display H4, Booth 001.
