Anti-UAV or drone technologies, have been developed to prevent jamming by bad drones.
While unmanned aerial vehicles, or drones for military and civilian use, are gaining popularity, there are still concerns that some drones could pose a threat to places like airports, prisons and power grids. Voice of America reporter Julie Taboh reports on a company developing technology that uses anti-drone technology to detect and reduce the threat of dangerous drones that Buasavan will throw at you.
In 2013, German Chancellor Angela Merkel was at an outdoor event when a drone flew overhead and suddenly landed near her, briefly interrupting her work.
But the incident has raised safety concerns about the presence of drones in areas that pose the same risks as the use of drones that are about to take off.
The case inspired the founding of Dedrone, which is now a leading counter-drone technology company with hundreds of customers in more than 35 countries.
"We detect drones primarily through radio frequency signals picked up by our receivers or sensors," said Mary-Lou Smeldas, Didron’s marketing director.
If the drone looks dangerous, Dedrone can help security personnel find the person in control of the drone and talk to them directly.
In very severe cases, such as in war, customers can directly disable drones by using drone jamming guns.
John Knag, Dedrone's vice president of defense technology, said: "It's called Drone Defender, which means defense drone, and it's a radio transmitter. When we see our drone in the sky, we will call it Target the drone. Interfere with the signal transmitted between the drone and the controller."
"Experts say the counter-drone technology industry is growing alongside the commercial drone industry."
Austrian Armed Forces and Rheinmetall successfully test anti-small drone system C-sUAS
16 December 2022 - The Austrian Armed Forces and Rheinmetall have successfully tested the leased anti-small unmanned aerial vehicle system (C-sUAS), which was delivered in May 2022. Following the successful test, the Austrian Armed Forces The lease contract has now been extended by seven months.
After the system training is complete, the operational capabilities of the Rheinmetall C-sUAS system will now be tested as intensively as possible under real conditions. A wealth of important insights and experience has been provided through a successful and intensive test week," said Matthias Diem, Vice President, Counter-Drone and Aviation Marketing. The Drone Jammer demonstrates combat with these enemy drones."
The system consists of two shelter units that can be quickly deployed on standard trailers and trucks. The sensor unit is automatically raised and lowered and can be equipped with a variety of detection technologies as required, including X-band and S-band radar, passive emitter locators, ADS-B receivers, and more. An integrated, stabilized 360° photoelectric PTZ sensor provides state-of-the-art verification and tracking capabilities.
