Shvabe creates a mobile laser against drones


Polyus Research Institute, a leading Russia's scientific center in the field of laser technologies, a part of the Shvabe Holding of Rostec State Corporation, announced a tender for a part of research work aimed at creating a mobile laser complex for combating small-size drones.

As it is stated on the site of state procurement, the complex should consist of a tracking system and a system for object flight trajectory construction, it should designate targets for a powerful radiation guidance system, the source of which will be a liquid laser. Also, the mobile laser complex would deal with drones both in day time and in twilight.

The demonstration copy will be able to detect up to 20 air objects at distance of 200 - 1500 meters and obtain detailed images thereof, to distinguish a drone from a bird or a cloud, to calculate the trajectory and to hit targets.

The maximum value of the contract is 23.5 mln. rubles, the applications are planned to be considered on December 13. The work on the project is scheduled to be started on January, and to be completed in April 2018. Polyus Research Institute of M.F. Stelmakh is a leading scientific center of Russia for laser technologies. It is a part of Shvabe Holding of Rostec State Corporation. Last year, as per the decree of the Moscow Government the institute got a status of a tech park.

For the years of its work, the institute has developed and implemented in full scale production dozens of unique military instruments, numerous laser medical and technological equipment, a number of lasers for scientific instrument making.

Today, Polyus Research Institute is the largest research and production center in Russia in the field of quantum electronics. The Institute specializes in the areas as follows: solid-state lasers and devices based thereon, semiconductor lasers of all types, laser gyroscopes and navigation instruments, laser medical and technological installations.
