No more unwanted flyovers with the DroneDefender rifle, and it’s completely nondestructive.
Ohio-based company Battelle has released the DroneDefender, a 1,300-foot ranged rifle that fires radio control frequency disruption “to safely stop drones in the air, before they can pose a threat to military or civilian safety.”
Drones have become widely popular, not just in the U.S. military’s covert operations in the Middle East, but also in the form of camera-equipped quadcopters hovering over homes, sporting events, and basically everywhere else public. They’ve become such an issue that Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) proposed legislation to have them banned from within two miles of an airport and from flying above 500 feet.
As Battelle’s lead researcher Dan Stamm said, “This is just the kind of tool we need to safely counter a drone threat.” And technical director Alex Morrow added, “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.”
