The EDM4S is a hand-held, trigger-actuated infantry-level drone neutralization solution for the modern battlefield. Of Lithuanian origination, the system is intended for use by military / security forces against small-to-medium unmanned aerial targets (drones). The solution is manufactured by NT Service UAB of Kaunas, Lithuania and the product was debuted at the 2019 Security and Counter Terror Expo in London. Its designation stands for "Electronic Drone Mitigation 4 - System".
The EDM4S is billed as a simple-to-operate, one-man, "point-and-shoot" anti-drone solution. The operator aims the system towards the intended airborne target and a pull of the trigger activates an Electro-Magnetic Pulse (EMP) effect resulting in a partial, or complete, interruption of the drone's communication signal(s). Depending on the complexity of the drone target, this may result in the aircraft falling out of the sky, reversing course (automatically) to return to its launch point or last waypoint, or executing an emergency landing. The weapon has a range out to 5 kilometers.
Thanks to its predominantly aluminum frame, the complete system weighs 12lb (5.5kg) and has an overall length of 41 inches (1,050mm) with the stock fully extended, 32.6 inches (830mm) otherwise. Its general arrangement is that of a standard infantry rifle complete with pistol grip / trigger unit and optics set. A 24V battery pack supplies the needed power and offers operating times in the range of 35 minutes for continuous use. An accompanying battery charger supplies battery renewal.
