Little by little we have seen how the drones expand its presence in a wide range of disciplines, but within military strategies is where they begin to be more recurrent because their capacities and scope, so it is normal that also begin to emerge tools seeking Counteract its operation.
Within the battlefield drones have become vehicles to transport explosives, and although there are several methods to knock them down, they are not the best option since it requires the operator is at a relatively short distance, putting at risk their integrity. But this could soon change thanks to an incredible bazooka anti-drones.
DroneShield is an Australian company with US capital that has developed a weapon that promise to shoot down drones at distances up to 2 kilometers, which makes it ideal for tactical tasks that require disabling the drone without damaging it and without making the explosive charge is Active.
The company sells us DroneGun as a device with a weight of 6 kilograms signals emitted interference on the frequencies of 2.4 and 5.8 Ghz, which are commonly used on flights of drones, but also if If another frequency is being used, this bazooka is capable of blocking GPS and GLONASS signals. Another advantage of this device would be the ability to track the drone, because when it blocks it may land or may have the function of returning with its pilot, which would help locate the aircraft operators.
However, we must pay attention to the details, because so far there is no evidence to ensure the operation of this bazooka out of what promises the company, yet even lacks the FCC certification, so its sale Is prohibited at least in the United States.
On the other hand, its creators say that DroneGun would be ideal not only for the battlefield, and would also have no place in airports or sites that need to restrict air traffic.
