The U.S. Army has come up with an initial list of the best usable counter drone technologies to destroy or deter quadcopters and other unmanned systems that pose a threat to troops and bases overseas.
The service has authorized seven defensive countermeasures out 40 systems needed to primarily detect, access, and engage with enemy drones. The Army also identified a single streamlined command and control, or C2, system that will work as the standard for its counter drone operations. This will allow the plug-and-play of emerging technology from industry into our architecture.
That way, the tech–from zappers to radio jammers–will integrate the department's networks from the start and not be limited by incompatible parts.
A remoter control for a TV, video or other piece of electronic equipment.
Device used to deliberately jam, block or interfere with authorized wireless communications.
Radio jammers are frequently deployed in facilities such as prisons, government buildings and military installations.
