    So according to this report, the USMC attachment of the USS Boxer used the Lightweight Marine Air Defense Integrated System LMADIS
    This system is not some gold plated set up.
    Basically it starts with a Polaris MRZR. Think of a Gulf cart exposed to the same Gamma radiation of the Hulk, and very very angry.

    On the roll cage (because for this kind of vehicle the word “Roof” just sounds weak.)
    Is mounted 4 compact AESA radar array. About the size of a large box fan. The PRS 42 Air Surveillance Radar a of the shelf product from RADA of Israel.
    They scan the sky along with an electro optical turret, and a Radio Frequency scanner.
    To “attack” the system uses a Modi Jammer Originally developed to kill IEDs.

    They rolled these on to the deck of the Boxer and chained it down. This method has been in use for a couple years now as a cheap yet effective way to add anti drone ability to the LHA and LHD.
    When the Iranians started buzzing the Boxer apparently the Marines decided to put it to the acid test. Jamming the drone’s remote system.

    it's supposedly a cool story: it's made to a major news server here

    Nejnovější
    I guess that's what's massively read (by people with smart phones on the subway etc.)
