Euronaval 2022: MC2 Technologies displays its counter UAV systems.

| 2022

Since it was founded in 2004, MC2 Technologies has come a long way: a pioneer in France in drone neutralization systems, it is now an industrial and innovative SME. On the occasion of Euronaval 2022, the firm is showcasing its counter UAV systems, such as the Nerod HG and the Nerod RF but also the Matia radar.

MC2 Technologies started developing counter-UAV systems in 2014, starting with portable and fixed neutralisation systems. Since 2021, the company has also offered detection systems.


This ultra-compact and lightweight solution is dedicated to close protection. Thanks to its small size and weight of only 2 kg, the NEROD HG is the most effective "small size" solution on the market for commercial drone neutralization. Easily transportable and operable, it deploys quickly with one hand, offering a perfect combination of size and performance.


NEROD RF is one of MC2 Technologies' flagship products. It is labelled "Used by the French Armed Forces" (UAF), and is used by special forces and all army corps. It has been securing the 14th of July since 2019, and has protected numerous events, including the Beijing Olympic Games.

With over 400 systems sold internationally, NEROD RF represents the know-how and values of MC2 Technologies. It is entirely manufactured in France, in the company's premises in Villeneuve-d'Ascq.


Most UAVs are made of plastic and composite materials making their detection more complex, if not impossible with conventional radars. The MATIA radar addresses this problem: it uses Terahertz frequencies and Doppler and micro-Doppler analysis to detect all types of UAVs, including the smallest, autonomous UAVs (with no RF emission) and hovering UAVs.

Powered by machine learning (ML) algorithms, MATIA adapts to different environments to provide real-time airspace information. It is based on the detection and tracking of systems close to protected areas. The latter two systems can be coupled with the MAJES neutralisation system to form a global anti-drone solution called DNA-Drone.
