In recent years, drones have become a rare pastime for amateurs. Now drones are everywhere, from people taking selfies, to commercial photography, to search and rescue missions.
Because of its ubiquity, accidents started to happen. The sky has become a drone infestation, and laws must be enacted to maintain order in the air, mainly in cities and airports. Due to their number and ability to carry all kinds of luggage, they have also become a serious threat to security expert review.
As mentioned earlier, it is not uncommon for drones to almost collide with aircraft, and drones equipped with cameras (or worse, explosives) may pose unique threats to the safety of the ground and facilities. However, in most cases, there are not many safe methods to deal with them.
Now, a new device that looks like a weapon in science fiction uses electromagnetic signals to knock drones out of the air quickly and safely.
Drone jammer guns are described as providing “safety countermeasures against various drone models.” It allows controlled management of UAV payloads (such as explosives) without causing damage to common UAV models or the surrounding environment. “This anti-drone device weighs about 8 kilograms and has an effective range of up to 1 km. It can be used on a rechargeable lithium-ion battery. As far as design is concerned, it will not be used by Stormtroopers in Star Wars movies.
It is very simple: you point the gun at the drone and pull the trigger. Transmit a series of electromagnetic signals and block the connection between the drone and its pilot. It uses radio frequencies to stop the drone from transmitting video and block the drone’s signal, forcing it to return to the launch point or land on the spot. “If the drone’s response is to go back to the beginning, this provides an opportunity to track it back to the operator.
Of course, there are other high-end technologies that can also attack aerial drones. It is an automatic defense strike system for drones.
