Escribano develops a promising Counter UAS solution

Madrid 21st January – ESCRIBANO M&E has shown its capacities against drone threats employing its GUARDIAN 2.O RWS integrating a MK-19 40 mm automatic grenade launcher using 40×53 HEDP-RF grenades (by Nammo Plasencia) with airburst capacity and a Dillon M134D minigun. The test was performed at Médano del Loro test field in an exercise leading by Spanish Antiaircraft Artillery Command.

This defense solution, in collaboration with Nammo Palencia, is positioned as one of the most advanced, versatile, and economical alternatives, based on cutting-edge technology that allows the use of equipment and ammunition already in use in NATO Army, obtaining very promising results and highlights its effectiveness compared to the rest of actual anti-drone solutions.
