US Army Deploys Experimental Counter-Drone Vehicles in Europe | #MilitaryNews:

The team at Fort Bliss, TX developed another CMIC application using two HMMWVs carrying several sensors dedicated for the C-UAS role. The systems used with these prototypes are mostly in use by the Army, thus enabling rapid deployment and integration with the active force, if required. The systems on board include the Q-50 Counterfire Radar System, Lightweight Laser Designator Rangefinder (LLDR) and mast mounted Venom target acquisition payload, providing visual identification of targets. The radar that was originally designed to detect mortar bombs in flight uses modified software to improve detection of small or hovering UAVs. When the radar detects a drone it sends the bearing and elevation data to the LLDR which slews on the target. If further action is required, the system can direct soft or hard kill against it.
