New US Army tool for Coyote family drones to attack and defend

Multipurpose UAV 1 – Coyote

This little bird was introduced in 2004 by Raytheorn. Initially for ISR (intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance) missions, it was in areas not accessible to manned aircraft, but today coyotes can be used for a variety of tasks from offensive to assisted targeting, anti-UAV, electronic warfare, and disaster assessment. Etc. configured. This inexpensive and scalable drone has a modular design and can carry out single or group attacks.
The length of the coyote is 66 and the wingspan is 47.1 meters. The structure consists of two rows of wings in a row that gather on the body when stored in the capsule and open after launch. The tail also has 2 vertical rudders and the electric motor is installed at the end of the body. Stable travel speed is more than 100 and maximum 130 km / h. In non-glacial conditions, it can fly at an altitude of 9,000 meters above sea level and stand in front of the wind at a speed of 160 kilometers per hour. It has a range of 80 km and a flight duration of 60 minutes. It weighs 579 kg and carries various loads according to the mission. It can be placed on the nose, day or night camera to collect surveillance images or advanced radar to detect and track the installation target. It also has a variety of sensors for collecting atmospheric data that are suitable for managing natural disasters. The information is also transmitted to the ground station immediately with a secure data link..
Raytheon is currently designing a larger version of the Coyote 3 electronic warfare that will be completed if selected. According to some sources, the Coyote 3 is an ISR and suicide drone ordered by the Navy to launch from boats and submarines. In addition to the military, the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) uses coyotes to track and model storms. In 2017, six aircraft were successfully used to collect information on Hurricane Maria. The reasonable price of cabotage reduces operating costs and saves lives!

Swarm (crowded or crowded flight)

With this AI-based technology, Kabut has created a new framework for increasing the security of attack aircraft such as fighters and bombers. In an area where the enemy arrangement is variable. The impact of satellite information and remote ammunition is reduced and live aerial imagery is required. But if the area has a heavy defense, sending a manned aircraft or a large drone is dangerous and costly. But with the coyote masses, the defense can be suppressed at the same time as the information and live images, before the attack aircraft are deployed. River. These boats were one of the most important challenges for the US Navy, but new methods are constantly being developed to suppress them, and the coyote is the culmination of this approach. Its great advantage over a weapon with almost the same features as the Brimstone missile, in addition to its much lower price, is its patrol capability and flight duration of one hour.
With this privilege, multiple masses can be sent to the area to patrol and target the targets with the least risk and cost To discover and destroy, by 2016, more than 12 coyotes were able to operate as independent swallows, which reached 30 that year. This feature can be used in various missions from ISR to attacking moving targets. A multitude of cameras flying over enemy forces, each capable of acting as a guided bomb.
Coyote Autopilot with GPS-based autopilot includes pre-loaded flight control software. Land and sea launch with a launcher is a box of 6 that is carried in large numbers on the deck of the ship or by a land tug. The coyote is designed to be launched from the Sonoboy tube of a naval patrol aircraft. In this case, with the umbrella, the fall speed is slowed down so that the wings can be opened.

Defense UAV2- Coyote


Today, one weapon cannot be used against all UAVs because they range from cheap quadrupeds to large aircraft. The military is also seeking new and specialized technology to suppress them. Coyote 2 is the result of the widespread use of commercial drones by terrorist groups in Syria and Iraq. In the next battle, swam is a key attack technology that can consume expensive defenders’ missiles and put pressure on the defense. A drone quite similar to Coyote 1 with the possibility of a group invasion has been operated in China, and our country is also moving in this direction.
Figure 2 – Coyote is completely different from its predecessor. Control levels are four small tail blades like a rocket blade that allow you to bypass high speeds and hit hard targets Follow. It also uses a rocket booster and jet propulsion, and has a burst warhead with an adjacent fuse. Its speed is 555 compared to 130 km / h 1 – Coyotn. Therefore, it has more of a missile aspect than a drone and is much faster and more effective for hitting an air target.
Navigation 2 – The Coyoto is command-oriented and receives target data from ground-based radar, so it does not require a sophisticated sensor. This combination is like a rifle with an expensive camera for firing cheap ammunition. A useful feature to deal with the mass of Chinese-made coyotes! The saturating nature of them attacking the network automatically as a coordinated group with dynamic tactics allows them to cross a large number of defenses. Even if the best short-range defense system, the council is against them.
Defeating small and cheap UAVs (terrorist or swerm) happens to be costly because the threat costs only tens or hundreds of dollars, but to destroy it you have to fire tens of missiles for hundreds of thousands of dollars. While the price of the Coyote 2, with the maximum use of parts available in the commercial market, is almost half that of the Stinger missile and is so cheap that a large number can be fired against a regiment of enemy drones.
Take. So it gives the US military a significant defense advantage. Coyote 2 in Launcher 4, although similar to a science fiction story, is the only thing that can stop a small UAV from swam attacking ground forces with military bases. This causes tens and even hundreds of dagfits of attacking and defending suicide drones in the sky. The final idea is a multi-layered anti-aircraft defense system in which the Coyote 2 performs long-range combat and other weapons (cannon, missile, laser, electromagnetic) close combat are carried by Thai.

Howler UAV Defense System


The U.S. military awarded Rayton a contract in 2018 to develop KuRFS active electronic reconnaissance radar to target and guide Coyote 2. It is derived from anti-RAM radar (artillery, mortars, rockets) and unlike most radars specifically designed to detect and intercept small targets, KuRFS has 360-degree early warning power, unprecedented resolution and a range of 16 km of small anti-UAV. Fast and accurate tracking enables the target of Coyote 2 to hit.
The recently launched Howler defense system includes KuRFS radar and two Cabot 2 launchers on the truck, which can be fitted with more launchers as needed. Interestingly, some thought that Howler was a new firearm system that would detect enemy artillery with radar and destroy it by launching Coyote 1 while defending. If needed, Raytheon can add a 10 kW laser weapon and a Stinger missile. A miniature version of Howier with a small radar and a launcher is also mounted on the M-ATV.
