The LPD-801 is a Counter-Unmanned Aerial System (C-UAS) designed, developed, and manufactured by Russia. The system is a direct solution to the threat posed by many common low-flying unmanned aerial threats - recognized generically today as "drones". Development of this radio-electronic / Electronic Warfare (EW) "rifle" was handled by engineers of PPSH Laboratory and the system has been photographed in active use by Russian ground forces in its ongoing war with neighboring Ukraine.

The complete system takes on a "rifle-like" shape for familiarity to any infantry personnel. The receiver is bookended by a shoulder stock at the rear for support and a "silencer-like" assembly at the front containing the signal-interrupting gear. Under the weapon is an angled, ergonomic pistol grip with integrated trigger unit and a "magazine well" is present just ahead and serves as the battery pack insertion port. A vertical foregrip is positioned aft of the tubular forward housing section a carrying handle is featured over the frame, complete with a full-length of Picatinny rail for mounting various tactical optics.

The LPD-801 tips the scales at just 7.7lb, making it highly portable in the field, no heavier or bulkier than a modern infantry-level tactical assault rifle.

Reportedly, the system has a range out to 1 mile, making it an ideal counter to low-flying drones, particularly those used in the Intelligence-Surveillance-Reconnaissance (ISR) role or with limited attack functionality. As with other counter-drone solutions, the LPD-801 attacks these aircraft by attempting to interrupt their inbound communications signals, ideally driving the drone into a state of confusion and (ultimately) sending the unit crashing to the ground - neutralizing the threat at range.

Beyond Russia, the United Arab Emirates is said to be one export operator of this C-UAS.
