美海军陆战队舰载反无人机电子战系统初露“实战”锋芒

据Defense World网站2019年7月20日报道,处在试验阶段的美国海军陆战队新式舰载“轻型海上综合防空系统”的电子战分系统,击落了伊朗无人机。海军退役军官称,这是该系统展示毁伤无人机能力的首次公开亮相,作为新一代反无人机系统,具备电子战和定向能毁伤双重功能,是替代昂贵防空导弹系统、对付批次低端来袭威胁的有效手段。据称,该系统由北极星公司研制的MAZA全地形轻型越野车上舰改装而成,包括指挥控制与电子战、激光武器平台,4部相控阵雷达和光电系统等。

LMADIS anti-drone system

The United States (US) has used its new Light Marine Air Defense Integrated System (LMADIS) anti-drone electronic warfare system to bring down the Iranian drone from its amphibious naval ship.

“The encounter is the first known kill by a new generation of electronic warfare and directed energy weapons the US has developed over the last decade to handle the daunting problem of how to counter voluminous, low-end threats without resorting to waste high-dollar missiles,” naval analyst and retired Navy officer Thomas Callender told USNI News on Friday.

On Thursday, President of the US Donald Trump announced that an USS Boxer belonging to the US Navy destroyed an Iranian drone as it was entering the Strait of Hormuz. The drone reportedly approached within 1,000 yards (914 meters) of the Boxer.

A day later, Iran broadcasted video footage to “falsify US claims of destroying the Iranian drone” in the Gulf.

The anti-drone system is portable enough to be installed on large all-terrain vehicles (ATV), such as the Polaris Defense MRZR buggy. The LMADIS is an array of several round devices that resemble cellular antennas in a circular arrangement to provide 360-degree coverage, topped with a video camera.

​The LMADIS typically consists of two buggies: a command vehicle and an electronic warfare platform. Initially designed for ground operations, the system was recently installed on several Navy ships for testing. The system uses radar and cameras to detect drones in the sky, and, once a threat is found, emits radio frequencies that jam drone control, according to the C4ISR May report.
