Rantelon, in cooperation with Tampere university has won the 2020 EDA Defence Innovation Prize with their work “Full-Duplex Radio Technology for Enhanced Defence Capabilities Against Drone Swarms”.
The core innovation of reaching full duplex capability should allow to simultaneously recon drones via their Radio Frequency (RF) signals and to neutralise them, e.g. via jamming, contributing to an enhanced situational awareness, improved neutralisation performance, multifunction capabilities, and minimised collateral damage. The proposed solution would bring detection and countermeasures, such as jamming and spoofing, to a higher level because it will allow the execution of both tasks simultaneously, what is not possible currently. Considering that the technological concept is already verified and experimental proofs-of-concept have been reported, it is possible to assume that this very relevant technology can be translated in enhanced security and defence capabilities by 2030. The technology has a high potential to create excellent dual-use synergies and to capture the attention of key players in the defence field to form valuable partnerships with non-traditional defence R&T communities and innovators for both defence and civil applications. The idea was considered by the jury as coherent and very likely to be feasible as proposed, given that the higher demand of power can be solved and expanded frequencies can be addressed.

The European Passive Radar Project PADIC has started
The kick-off meeting of the PADIC project took place on December 1-2 in Järfälla, Sweden. The European Defence Industrial Development Program project “Passive Acquisition by Digital Convergence” (PADIC) will develop a coastal radar network system with an open architecture; connecting passive, digital sensors of different types. Passive radars use reflections of signals from TV and […]
Ratelon is giving out two 2500 euro scolarships to IT students
Rantelon, in cooperation with Tallinn University of Technology, invites bachelor’s students in hardware development and programming to apply for a scholarship. The grant amounts to 2500 euros and is intended for two students. Rantelon’s goal is to recognize young active students in hardware development and programming. These students are potentially the next generation of engineers […]
