DroneGun, a bazooka to shoot down drones

weapon against drones

It is not the first time that we talk about how certain companies work conscientiously to develop some type of weapon or control system capable of shooting down any drone fly over some kind of restricted area. Surely you are remembering events such as those that occurred in Dubai and that caused the city's international airport to close its airspace for several hours.

These types of problems, and especially the enormous economic losses that they usually cause, make certain companies and even entrepreneurs, see in them that business gap in which to start working. After all this waiting time, projects such as DroneGun, a large bazooka capable of shooting down any type of drone at distances of up to 2 kilometers.

DroneGun, a weapon capable of shooting down any type of drone.

DroneGun is a weapon against drones created by the company DroneShield, an Australian company that has grown thanks to several capital injections from the United States and a project as interesting as the one you see on screen, a weapon whose weight reaches almost 6 kilograms and that it is capable of emitting interference signals on the 2,4 and 5,8 GHz frequencies, basically the same ones that are commonly used by practically all drones.

In addition to this, in case the drone uses another type of frequency, tell you that DroneGun is also capable of block GLONASS and GPS signals. On the other hand, once the drone has been locked, the bazooka has the ability to track the drone so that, if it has the function of returning to its pilot, the operator of said aircraft can be easily located.
