Drone Killer Counter-UAS Technology – Cost Effective – Rugged Design
The Drone Killer disables Unmanned Air Vehicles of all types. The Drone Killer enables Defense and Security Forces to thwart the use of drones by criminals and enemy combatants for surveillance and direct attacks to drop bombs, grenades, and improvised explosive devices (IEDs) on fighting forces.
The Drone Killer can also be used by First Responders and others to disable a drone being operated in restricted air space or when a drone is interfering with their operations.
Current counter-UAS system technology includes radio frequency (RF) command and control (C2) disruption systems (e.g., “electronic fences”) and directed energy weapons. These systems protect forward operating bases, airports, and other strategic high-asset facilities. These systems are large and stationary; they cannot be used by a mobile user. In addition, UAS threats are more prevalent at the front lines, at small checkpoints and outposts, and remote areas where convoys, dismounted warfighters, and security personnel on missions away from well-established air control assets.
The Drone Killer is a cost effective counter-UAS unit ideal for Defense and Security teams deployed World-Wide. The Drone Killer adds counter-UAS capabilities to mobile forces that cannot use large systems that add weight and require added power sources. The Drone Killer is compact and light-weight, able to be deployed from inside light vehicles or by dismounted warfighters in mobile units, strike teams, checkpoints,
forward outposts, and security response teams. Mobile units with the Drone Hunter provide gap-filling coverage and pursuit capabilities that complement larger, more costly fixed-location automated UAS defense systems.
One or more Drone Killer units deployed per mobile team or convoy (lead and rear) operating in regions having uncontrolled airspace would provide an umbrella of UAS protection.
In fixed locations having automated counter-UAS electronic fence systems, deploying the Drone Killer can fill in any gaps identified in the system that are affected by line of sight or physical obstructions. This type of deployment would fill gaps in protection coverage, extend spots of range, and provide pursuit and takedown capabilities beyond the immediate radius of coverage.
Upon detecting unknown UAS activity, an Drone Killer unit would disable a UAS within a few seconds.
The Drone Killer is easy to use and requires very little training and practice by an operator to disable a UAS.
