Regulus Cyber – a leading expert in software-based GPS/ GNSS security – is launching the fully-operational Ring ARM-V, specifically designed and aimed at protecting armored vehicles, convoys and deployed troops from drone attacks, including multi-rotor, fixed-wing, swarms and dark-drones. With dual top protection and omni protection, it brings unmatched C-UAS capabilities to troops in any combat situation, without the need to jam or cyber-hack.
Based on the Ring C-UAS – the first combat-proven system to manipulate satellite signals to intercept drones, UAS and swarms – the Ring ARM-V has several modes of operation: manual mode that uses a simple ‘red-button’ mechanical kill switch that enables the user to focus on their main mission GUI mode, that integrates with the vehicle’s own C2 interface; or automatic mode, which integrates with Regulus Ring R1 internal RF drone detection software, or any other detection capability.
Ring ARM-V can be operated on two settings: low-power, providing about 150 meters (500 feet) of omni protection and up to 1,000 meters (3,000 feet) of top protection, for use in the tactical protection of a single or small group of vehicles; or high-power, providing up to 1,500 meters (5,000 feet) of omni protection and over 5,000 meters (15,000 feet) of top protection, for use in emergency situations or to protect larger areas.
The Ring ARM-V system made history when it was recently installed, integrated and approved in an operational armored vehicle – making it the first armored vehicle ever to include an internal C-UAS capability. Integration was quick and simple, taking less than one month to complete. Operational testing is now beginning, and the Ring ARM-V will be deployed for testing on other platforms during 2023.
“We are proud to announce the launch of the Ring ARM-V, based on the fully-operational and combat-proven Ring C-UAS which has been deployed and integrated with various systems and products,” says Yonatan Zur, CEO & Co-Founder of Regulus Cyber. “Designed together with a leading Western army to precisely meet the need to protect modern armored and tactical vehicles from C-UAS, in light of the current conflict in the Ukraine, the Ring ARM-V is based on a deep understanding of the threat to vehicles, troops, and convoys.”
Using proprietary, combat-proven GNSS manipulation, Ring takes control of the target drone or drones and deflects, holds or crashes them, or forces them to land. Whereas jamming uses high transmission power and must affect several RF channels to be successful and can therefore inadvertently affect various other systems in the surrounding area, Ring’s GPS manipulation can be used to target and neutralize a single threat, or unlimited threats simultaneously. Using very low-power transmission on a single channel, it assures low collateral damage only on the GNSS channel.
Regulus Cyber is a leading expert in software-based GPS/ GNSS security with two product lines: Ring C-UAS, which provides groundbreaking C-UAS capabilities, and Pyramid GNSS, which protects against GNSS spoofing & jamming attacks. Both technologies are commercial and deployed worldwide.
