Azerbaijan has purchased Drone Killer system, designed to combat unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) from the Turkish company Harp Arge.

The company reported that the deal is its first agreement on the export of military systems to Azerbaijan.

The weapon system was successfully tested in Azerbaijan, according to the company.

Drone Killer can break connection between a drone and a control center, and disorient a GPS system. The system uses high-speed electromagnetic interference on a frequency of 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz for that.

Drone Killer is used by Turkey’s Armed Forces, National Intelligence Organization and other security agencies of the country.

Azerbaijan, which is in war with neighboring Armenia over the latter's groundless territorial claims, keeps in focus the armament. Azerbaijan enjoys the most modern army in the Caucasus and leaves behind many CIS countries to take its place among the first 60 strongest militaries of the world, according to the U.S.-based Global Firepower survey center.

Along with purchase of armament, Azerbaijan increases the volume of local defense production every year. Some 10 countries purchase the production of twenty-eight military factories that currently operate within the Defense Industry Ministry of Azerbaijan. During 2015-2016, the number of local defense products increased by 1.8 times.
