    Russia’s Kalashnikov Concern has come up with the REX-1. This is a nonlethal electronic weapon capable of shooting down drones and jam mobile phone and Wi-Fi signals, deputy director of Kalashnikov subsidiary, Zala Aero Group, Konstantin Abashkin told Sputnik.

    "Our team has developed a device against UAVs,” Abashkin said.

    He added that the REX-1 could also be used in everyday life to ensure the owner’s privacy, and by police during rallies and other public events.

    In addition, the REX-1 features a module capable of blocking GSM signals.

    “It can jam GSM-signals and 5.6 and 2.4 gigahertz Wi-Fi signals. Therefore, it can also be used against homemade explosive devices,” Abashkin explained.

    He mentioned a hypothetical situation where a police officer stumbles upon an unattended backpack, activates the REX-1, points it at the backpack blocking all incoming mobile phone signals and waits for the bomb disposal squad to arrive.

    The REX-1 also features a collimator sight, interchangeable GPS jamming modules, GLONASS navigation system, as well as a strap-on stroboscope, laser sight and audio and video recorders.
