“Researchers believe that this method is much safer than the traditional solution to knock down a drone. If a downed drone carried explosives on board, then after a fall, the charge can detonate, as well as the drone can injure people and its own weight. To prevent such incidents, developers propose to attach the network to the interceptor drone - in this case, the captured drone can be transported to a safe place for landing, ”writes the publication.
In the presented video, the UAV interceptor rises into the air and shoots a network into the "enemy" drone. The intruder's screws get entangled in the grid, and it hangs limply under the interceptor frame.
According to the developers, "this system can be used to protect strategic sites and during mass events, as well as to capture unregistered drones."
