Details: According to Mykhailo Fedorov, Piranha AVD 360 is a unique electronic warfare system that helps protect armoured vehicles and personnel more effectively from Russian drones.

The system creates a protective dome up to 600 metres around itself. Under the influence of the system, a copter or kamikaze drone cannot receive commands or transmit data. As a result, the drone either hangs in the air and makes an emergency landing or falls uncontrollably.

Piranha also suppresses satellite navigation systems, such as Russian GLONASS.

This development was implemented through the Brave1 support cluster for Ukrainian defence technologies.
