Ukraine’s defense forces have introduced a countermeasure against the increasing use of drones in modern warfare. Developed by the Ukrainian defense company, Kvertus Technology, portable signal-jamming devices, small enough to be carried in backpacks, have been deployed to combat Russian first-person view (FPV) drones effectively. These innovative devices feature two projecting antennas that sever the connection between drones and their controllers, causing the drones to fail and fall short of their targets.
The jamming backpacks, known as AD Counter FPV stations, are designed to interfere with the frequencies commonly used by FPV drones, specifically within the 850–940 MHz range. Weighing just 5 kg and boasting a 360° radiation pattern, these stations can jam UAVs within a range of up to 150 meters, proving their effectiveness in real-time battlefield conditions. The rapid deployment capability of these devices, requiring less than 0.5 seconds to become operational, underscores their strategic value in fast-paced combat scenarios.
Ukraine’s approach to drone warfare has evolved significantly, with these jamming backpacks playing a pivotal role in protecting troops
