Russia's Radio-Electronic Technologies (KRET), a Rostec company, has developed and commenced mass production of an advanced anti-unmanned aerial vehicle complex.

Named "Groza.04.K," the new product specifically targets First Person View (FPV) drones and has already been dispatched to military units.

The Novgorod research and production enterprise "Kvant," a division of KRET, undertook the development, subjecting it to comprehensive testing and checks. The complex has demonstrated its technical capabilities and high efficiency in countering FPV drones, Rostec said in a statement.

The initiative began in August 2023 when NPO Kvant received a directive from the Russian Ministry of Defense to devise a countermeasure against drones of this type. The first batch was delivered in the fall of the same year.

Modern FPV drones pose a significant threat to military personnel on the battlefield, being utilized for electronic and optoelectronic reconnaissance, as well as distracting radar equipment and missile systems during air attacks. FPV drones can be equipped with specialized means for carrying ammunition and often employ secure communication channels, rendering them resistant to electronic warfare.
