Australia-based DroneShield has unveiled DroneGun, a “tactical drone jammer.” It’s essentially used against drones flying where they shouldn’t, without bringing unmanned aircraft crashing to the ground. Once hit, the drone will vertically land, or return to its original starting point. The 13.2-pound DroneGun can jam drones from up to 1.2-miles using 2.4 gigahertz and 5.8 gigahertz frequency bands, as well as GPS and GLONASS. On a full charge, expect up to 2-hours of continuous use. Continue reading for another video and more information.
“For now, DroneShield’s scary-looking invention is not yet FCC approved, so don’t expect to see the DroneGun in action any time soon. If and when it does get approval, however, it could be used to help take down drones flying near airports,” reports Peta Pixel.
