Battelle has demonstrated DroneDefender’s capability to counter unmanned aircraft system (UAS) at Black Dart annual event conducted at the US Air Force’s (USAF) Elgin Air Force Base in Florida, US.

Designed to provide critical security protection against unidentified UAS, DroneDefender is said to be the first man-portable, accurate and easy-to-use system.

Battelle said DroneDefender system can defend airspace up to 400m against UAS, such as quadcopters and hexacopters.

The radio control frequency disruption technology allows DroneDefender to safely stop drones in the air before they can pose a threat to military or civilian safety.

Battelle researcher Dan Stamm said: “We know that the threat posed by nefarious UAS is constantly evolving and we have to adapt our technology to meet those new threats.”

"Battelle is continually upgrading the DroneDefender technology to help ensure its continued value in securing US assets."

Weighing no more than 15lbs, the lightweight, point-and-shoot system provides instantaneous disruption of unwanted UAS, using remote control drone disruption and GPS disruption methods.
