The Americans have created a system to intercept drone

70
Employees of the University of Michigan laboratory HIRoLab created and decided to patent the system of interception of drones, which will be caught by the network of other drones, reports Look with reference to the N + 1 edition.




“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."

    With crossbows drones would still come out to intercept ....
    Our “smart heads” have long developed a control system for intercepting combat and reconnaissance drones, which was successfully demonstrated during the events in Crimea. The American drone fell under our control and was successfully landed on one of the aerodromes of the Russian Aerospace Forces.
    Americans let them "wash" ...

      Only instead of horses and losso - drones and a network

        Cheap and cheerful. Only our electronic warfare products plant immediately everything within a radius of 500 keme. Fast and efficient. And string bags to catch - not our method.

        - Do not rush to mock. The article is not about those drones that are in the subject of the forum. The massive use of quadrocopters by the population is becoming a security problem. Copters have become too accessible, but not skillful use of them can lead to injury to both the user and others. Even worse, when intentionally a copter is sent with a load or a video camera to where it should not be. What is the reason for transferring police patrols to the "Automobile depots"?

          Some models with compact dimensions have a load capacity of several kilograms, a large radius of action (several kilometers), programmable route following functions and automatic return to the starting point. This can also be used with malicious intent to collect espionage data, carry out terrorist attacks, and steal from closed territories.

        This system is patented by patent lovers, in the hope that those lovers will be able to earn extra money. One trifle missed by large specialists, against power, large drones, it is powerless. Even useless.

          This system is designed primarily for police purposes to capture drones, which are freely sold in stores and can be used for a wide variety of purposes, including criminal ones.
          In a city, it’s unreasonable to shoot a drone. It will fall on someone's head - then pay compensation. We, I think, will probably also construct such a system. And then all sorts of good fellows began to produce unauthorized shootings in places that were not recommended for this.

        I don’t think so. Quadcopters are developing very fast. They can already fly around obstacles on their own. Imagine we attach ammunition to it, set the coordinates, he himself chooses the optimal route at any height, including several tens of centimeters from the ground. Such a gift flies out of a forest or a ditch, you will not be glad.

        And the idea itself is quite successful and most importantly cheap. You can put such a cannon with a network on any of your own drone and now an ordinary scout also turns into a drone hunter. A good addition to electronic warfare systems.
        So we seek an antidote against this.

    Networking drones is not news especially for the Japanese, since the Tokyo Central Police Department announced this week a decision to use drones equipped with nets to intercept drones flying over sensitive sites without proper permission. mid December similar drones will receive a division of the metropolitan department responsible for protecting the building of the Japanese parliament, the Imperial Palace, the official residence of the Prime Minister and other important facilities in Tokyo.

    News in topic:
    Russia has tested a flamethrower multicopter
    Tests of multicopters "United Instrument-Making Corporation" has tested the first samples of multicopters, armed with flamethrowers and automatic grenade launchers. The tests were carried out in a situation as close as possible to combat. An official representative of the defense industry complex told TASS journalists about this.
    “Testing of the copters has already begun. They are conducted in a situation that is as close to combat as possible, ”the source said.
    Multicopters were fired from the ground to test their strength and survivability, they were tried to land in the conditions of using various electronic warfare equipment, and also underwent a number of other tests. It is noted that the combat robots have shown "very good" results.
    According to the general director of the defense industry complex Alexander Yakunin, the first samples of multicopters have already been created in Russia, capable of dodging bullets. They are armed with grenade launchers and flamethrowers.
    “Samples of a reconnaissance copter, an observer-spotter of fire, an attack and a cargo copter have already been created. They can autonomously monitor objects and perform special maneuvers during shelling, which makes them practically invulnerable to small arms, "Yakunin said.
