Order and security in the sky: combating drones.


Scientists from Michigan Technological University, after a short development, have found an effective way to combat drones, which have already become one of the biggest headaches of the US National Security Agency. In fact, these small remote-controlled devices do not cause any panic by their appearance, however, in reality, the problems posed by drones are incomparably greater than it might seem at first glance.



Not so long ago, the information portal Avia.pro published an article in which American experts pointed out the fact that small aircraft, called drones, pose a great threat to civil aviation, in particular, in a collision with an aircraft, a drone hitting an aircraft engine, etc. etc., this can cause a plane crash with the death of tens and hundreds of people, and given the fact that drones are usually launched in populated areas, the number of victims, from a seemingly harmless toy, can be measured in thousands.

Among other things, not so long ago it became known case of attempts to span the drone to the territory of the White House, which, in turn, when using such devices by terrorists and could face a terrorist act since the drone could carry their lifting power load of explosives.



To somehow solve a similar problem, specialists from Michigan Technological University have developed a unique drone capable of using the emitted network, to carry out "fishing" drone-offenders, and, as shown by test trials 84% of cases, the offender is caught, and as a consequence, it could not continue the flight.

An interesting new development is probably just the fact that dron- "catcher" is almost completely automated, in particular, it alone can approach the drone-offender, and with sufficient convergence to throw out the network. The basic principle of this device is the presence of a small software chip that taking the signal from the transmitter, it should be the subject wrongdoing.

It is expected that the development of new innovative start using in places the greatest threat at the end of this year.
