IXI Technology Dronekiller

Drones are an impressive application of new technologies and, under normal legal circumstances, great toys for hobbyists and engineers. But they also come with some potential consequences — like the fact that they can be weaponized or used to invade privacy. Thankfully, however, companies like IXI Technology are developing handy countermeasures like their Dronekiller jamming gun.

Modeled after a bullpup rifle, the Dronekiller is completely self-contained — meaning it doesn’t need to be plugged into anything to work, lending it some excellent mobility. It also boasts a range of up to 800 meters, has a functional life of up to four hours per charge with hot-swappable battery packs, and it can be charged via any 12-volt vehicle outlet. It can even be equipped with optics and lights, thanks to its Picatinny rails. What’s even cooler is that it can take down class 1 and 2 drones using a non-broadband FCC-compliant data communications interruption technique (meaning it can target specific drones without knocking out all in its range). It’s only legal to be used by the military for now, but that could change in the near future.
