Charities Donate $12,000 Drone-Jamming Devices to Ukrainian Military

Charities are buying Ukrainian-made drone-jamming devices to donate to the country’s military, according to Radio Free Europe.

This footage shows Yaroslav Filimonov, the director of Kvertus Technology – which produces anti-drone systems and other equipment for law enforcement, security services, and military units – demonstrating how to use the drone jammer on an enemy reconnaissance drone.

Filimonov says in the video that the tool does not damage the drone, it just forces it to lose connection and coordination, and eventually fall to the ground. This allows Ukrainian forces to confiscate the drone and read its data, he says.

“The main objective of our device is to save the lives of soldiers fighting,” Filimonov says in the video. “It’s not a secret that this is a new kind of war where drones are tasked with firing artillery, dropping explosives, and reconnaissance.”

Currently, the drone jammer shown in the video, ANTIDRON KVSG-3, is being sold for $12,000. But since the demand for anti-drone technology has increased since the start of the Russia-Ukraine war, some charities are buying the device to donate to the Ukrainian military, according to Radio Free Europe.
