Canadians have come up with a new way to shoot down drones

The Canadian company AirShare offered to catch intruder drones using “safe” missiles. At the presentation, the company showed a system of interception of small UAVs called OVERWATCH Interceptor-UX, reports "Warspot" with reference to the portal

Canadians have come up with a new way to shoot down drones

Canadians presented small missiles with a non-standard "combat" part. Instead of a kinetic strike, an explosion, or electronic jammers, the Interceptor-UX hits drones with a network.

When approaching the target, the rocket releases a network in which the drone's screws get entangled. The network is equipped with a parachute, through which the intruder UAV gently lands. At AirShare, they point out that, thanks to the parachute network, Interceptor-UX missiles can be used even in city conditions or at crowded events.

The OVERWATCH Interceptor-UX system can be produced in several versions: infantry, mobile (for installation on vehicles), and also as a stationary system for protecting an object. To date, Canadians offer two types of rockets Block 0A and Block 0В, the working range of which is 1,1 and 1,6 km, respectively. In the future it is planned to release interceptors with a range of up to 4 km.

        Yes, here Global Netom smacks of ... In general, a powerful idea ... And break off the intruder and squeeze drones ...

        This must be used against all sorts of American drones. Type op and he himself fell for example on the territory of LDNR)) or in the Crimea))))

    So it’s been invented for catching animals for a long time, the same stray dogs are caught with bazookas with a charged net, but here the question of my copter hangs for 200 meters, how do they accurately catch it in the city, the wind will blow the network onto the electric support and hang like a garland.

    What if a drone without screws?

      Then the drone will simply break the network and slip through.

    A very sensible idea for use in a city in peacetime. It would not hurt to equip the rocket itself with a parachute for safe landing. I wonder how suggest suggest? and can a rocket maneuver at least once during a drone maneuver?

      Model airplane club. They have never been in Canada, we do not have them now. What more can people running smartphones have to offer?

          To equip ZU-23 for shooting in urban conditions with ping-pong balls, it will be cheaper smile .

          They cannot make them, that’s the problem. Aircraft modeling is creativity.

    It is possible as an option to intercept the drone with a carbon dioxide jet wassat , there is still an option, "drone landing" wassat builds optics to another's drone, flirts with him wassat and then under the pretext of "dating parents" wassat pulls into a trap! lol

    ... Invented would be better (compact) radar for their detection.

    1.6 km, the range for aiming is small, you can say visual contact ... if there is also a network of squares 20 ... another question is the price itself, a rocket with gadgets, a guidance-detection system, etc. ... isn’t it easier to work with a jammer?

    It can apply the experience of the Israelis ... they have called ammunition of a limited radius of destruction ... of the order of only a radius of up to 6m ... mostly high-explosive, used mainly against people ... a mixture of explosives and small inclusions such as coarse sand ... add radio fuse. In the warehouses of the reserve there are still probably 37 mm automatic anti-aircraft guns stored ... off. In any case, it will be cheaper than rockets.

    ... the network, of course, is not bad, but the Canadian maple slingshot is much more effective ...

    It’s easier to create a drone that will catch enemy drones with a net.

    By the way, is it really impossible to deal with attack helicopters in this way?

      Not. This is only against remotely piloted vehicles.
