An Australian company aims to protect the US public
DroneShield offers different technology services. Their DroneGun, for example, can jam frequencies of a drone that is over a mile away. While these aren’t the only counter-drone tech available, they are definitely among the few that can be rapidly deployed and aren’t tough to operate.
Drones: A threat to public safety
In the world of warfare, drones have long been feared for their attack potential, and this threat has only become worse with the use of drone swarms. In order to be a threat to the general public, a drone does not have to be military-grade or be operated by military personnel. Even a hobbyist drone could be deployed with nefarious intent, and this is where DroneShield’s technology comes in.
Instead of using radar, which finds it hard to distinguish between man-made drones and natural birds, DroneShield turned to radio-frequency-based detection. The company deploys a wide range of sensors in different form factors ranging from sentry towers to body sensors.
