New Gun Uses Radio Waves To Take Down Drones

Published on October 29, 2015 by   ·   No Comments

What started off as a simple device, we have seen the technology of Drones make a huge impact on our lifestyles in several ways. Anyone can own their own drone by purchasing one at your local electronic shop such as Best Buy, Fry’s, and even Radio Shack.

Now we can see what started off as a simple project, has blown into one of the world’s best electronic devices. From using it for field services in which we can use drones for search and rescue missions, to government using them for spying. However, as war progresses along, we can also see drones being used for mass destruction. Until now, The most effect way to destroy these drones would be by means of rocket launchers or machine guns/turrets. This possesses a problem as the drone would detect where the source of fire was coming from. Then a squad would go in, better prepared for combat thanks to the drone.

Now we have a new option that allows us to destroy these flying machines with little to no tracing. A US sci-tech contractor, Battelle, has indeed developed a new revolutionary weapon in which is able to detect and stop the UAV’s dead. More incredibly at a long distance of 400 meters, this new gun uses radio signals instead of rockets or bullets.

The “DroneDefender” is able to aid in the protection from those who wish to utilize drones for deadly intent. While the essential usage of the DroneDefender is aimed to aid in the protection by defending the White House from terrorist drones. The Government will also be using the DroneDefender at embassies overseas in will be used to protect and defend their schools and even historic locations.

The weapon itself resembles the appearal of a modern assult rifle, only with an antenna replacing the barrel of the gun. The entire weapon weighs less than 5 kg. The more shocking use of this weapon is that in less than one tenth of a second, the weapon is on and ready to operate. The DroneDefender is able to operate and take down drones for over 5 hours without the need of recharging.

Operating the gun, is far too easy. The operator of the DroneDefender simply aims at a drone and pulls the trigger. The weapon doesn’t exactly destroy the drone, but merely produces a signal surrounding the drone. This signal makes the drone to appear it is out-of-range of the operator and will cause the drone to go into one of three different safety protocols. The safety protocols includes the drone will hover in the same position until the operator regains control, the drone will land and wait for the operator to physically retrieve it, or simply returns to the point or origin.

In either case, the drone is practically defenseless and will stop all actions until further instructed to by the operator. While disrupting the control of the UAV and even the GPS signal the drone sends out, makes this weapon effective against any and all commercial grade drones.
