Gun for Drones
We’ve seen a couple of brute force anti-drone devices designed to snatch the tiny machines out of the sky, but Battelle’s DroneDefender is one of the first to do it with an invisible beam delivered in an ultra-portable, gun-like form
The device uses radio control frequency disruption to halt and bring down drones in a way that keeps the drone intact while preventing it from setting off any kind of self-destruct sequence
That last point is important because small drones are increasingly being used for aerial surveillance. In the case of industrial espionage, the ability to snag a drone intact in order to investigate its source could be vital.
