The ‘Drone Defender: is a rifle like weapon that can take-out drones by blasting it with strong radio waves. According to the company it can target a drone up to 400-1300 feet away. It blocks the drone from receiving frequencies.
“the first portable, accurate, rapid-to-use counter-weapon to stop suspicious or hostile drones in flight, providing critical security protection at home and abroad.” While it’s not a weapon in the conventional sense, it represents a huge step in the fight against unwanted drone activity.”
