Brits develop drone jammer
A UK-developed system capable of jamming signals to small drones is to be trialled by the US aviation authority.I think the technology will also find uses around military defended positions to block prying eyes.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is expanding efforts to source technology that can detect small, unmanned aerial vehicles near airports.
Three British companies developed the Anti-UAV Defense System (Auds), due to be included in new trials.
It works by jamming signals to drones, making them unresponsive.
A thermal imaging camera allows the Auds operator to target the unwanted drone before signal jamming, via a high-powered radio signal, is activated.
