Title: SYSTEM FOR DEFENCE AGAINST THREATS
Abstract:
The invention proposes a protection and defence system (1) for an infrastructure (100) against a threat approaching the infrastructure (100), comprising at least one effector (2). When a threat is determined, the at least one effector (2) dispenses a non-lethal countermeasure which damages the threat and thus causes its crash. Vision and target tracking means, such as at least a camera and tracker (3), and at least one directing/actuating drive (4) are allocated to the effector (2) or effectors (21-n). The effector(s) (2) and the vision and target tracking means thereof are supported by a modular platform which can be fixedly installed to/on various infrastructures (100), can be removed therefrom and be used in a mobile mode. In addition, the platforms comprise a sensor that detects the spatial position of the effectors (2, 21-n).
