ECM Technologies launches Allen Vanguard’s new ANCILE Counter Drone technology at AAD


ECM Technologies is proud to announce the South African launch of Allen Vanguard’s new ANCILE Counter Drone capability.

Governments around the world are becoming increasingly aware of the threat posed by commercial drones weaponised by terrorists and insurgents or used for criminal activity, and until now, there has been no effective counter-measure that is affordable, portable, easy to use and readily deployable anywhere, including urban environments.

Allen Vanguard’s new ANCILE electronic shield means security forces everywhere can now afford a capability that will reliably defeat commercial drones.

ANCILE prevents the intended drone mission by using Allen Vanguard’s battle-proven RF inhibition technology to disrupt a wide range of command and control protocols. It assures total enforcement of a no-fly zone, for example, to protect convoys, operating bases, sensitive locations and public events (for example, one of the first real deployments of the product was protecting world leaders at the G7 Summit held in Canada in June).

ANCILE is effective against multiple, simultaneous drone threats, including swarms. It can be used in a standalone position or easily integrated into any suite of electronic assets and tailored to any specific circumstance or requirement.

Allen Vanguard is exclusively represented in South Africa by ECM Technologies.
