Unfortunately, with new technology comes new and innovative ways for those with nefarious intentions to invade the pleasantness of our daily lives. Drones, for example, are one such opportunity to invade the privacy of others or serve to garner information not meant for public dissemination. So – in response to this growing threat – DroneShield, a leader in drone detection technology, has developed an appropriate drone jamming gun to disable these flighty nuisances.
Aptly named the DroneGun, the technology works in the same manner as other jamming systems, that is when aimed appropriately at the targeted drone it fires an electromagnetic noise on the same frequency as the drones video transmission and control communications thus disabling it. The DroneGun can also disable GPS tracking as well which forces the little quadcopter to the ground on site from a distance of up to 1.3 miles away. Talk about self-defense circa 2016. It’s weather-resistant, boasts an 180-degree range of detection, and defends against a wide array of drone models. However, at least as far as the U.S. market is concerned, it’s not yet available for civilian use as it’s currently relegated to government agencies only. Though we’re optimistic this will soon be broadened as the use of drones become more ubiquitous through our day to day lives.
