Safe way to disengage a dangerous drone in the sky
Drones have been a bit of menace lately and people have even resorted to shooting them down as a safety measure. Of course shooting these un-manned flying machines if they are trespassing in unauthorized air space or spooking over someone’s backyard. To counter this modern age privacy and national threat, Battelle has come-up with a safe way to disengage notorious drones in the sky. The DroneDefender is a rapid-to-use counter-weapon to stop hostile drones which are a danger to security.
Rather than shooting physical artillery like the Drone Muntion, DroneDefender shoots a concentrated radio frequency to disrupt the functioning of UAV in range of 400 meters and bring it on ground. This is a very simple and safe way to bring down a dangerous drone to an abrupt halt. Moreover, it doesn’t have any physical effect on the nearby objects like bullets or other weaponry that can incur damage. The main motive of this drone technology is to stop any malicious activity carried out with drones like dropping illegal drugs into a state prison or shooting bullets from gun mounted onto drone.
According to Dan Stamm, senior reseacher who led the project:
This is just the kind of tool we need to safely counter a drone threat. The DroneDefender can help protect us from those who may wish to do us harm.
Alex Morrow, technical director on the project added by saying:
It can help us in numerous settings, from the White House lawn to bases and embassies overseas; from prisons and schools to historic sites. It easily and reliably neutralizes the threat.
