Wingman 103: New wearable drone detection for special ops


Mydefence is launching its third product in the Wingman series of wearable drone detection platforms – The Wingman 103 – designed to be the most advanced wearable drone detection solution available on the Counter UAS market.
The Wingman 103 has been engineered to meet the requirements of elite forces, designed to be the wingman of its operator. With its ultra-light weight and rugged exterior, the Wingman 103 is the only truly wearable drone detection platform that can withstand extreme operational conditions.

The small and light form factor allows dismounted soldiers to wear the Wingman 103 on their uniforms or backpacks using the Molle clip-on system. Designed to withstand extreme conditions with operating temperatures from -30°C to +65°C (-220F to 1490F), it also has an an IP67 rating, and is dust- and waterproof. The detection range covers 1-2 kilometers, depending on environmental conditions, and provides situational awareness and early-warning on threats. The Wingman 103 has been designed to be used with standard external clip-on batteries with 14 hours of operation. “The Wingman 103 has been designed together with special operations forces, making it a truly unique product that takes operational requirements of the end users into account. The result is a rugged dust- and waterproof wearable drone detection device that provides all-day battery life in all operational conditions – from arctic to desert environments”, says COO of Mydefence, Dan Hermansen.

Together with the Wingman 103, the Mydefence external Active Antenna (AA100) is also being introduced. The special-designed quad-band active antenna provides 360 degrees of coverage on the 433MHz, 1.2Ghz, 2.4GHz and 5.8Ghz frequency bands. The AA100 is plug-n-play and does not require an external power source, as the antenna is powered by the Wingman. The AA100 active antenna is dust- and waterproof and is designed specifically for drone detection with its built-in filters and low noise amplifiers, making it the ideal companion for the Wingman 103.
