Drone mitigation is a key component of counter drone technology. Tracking and categorizing risks is important – but then you have to deal with them. That’s harder than it might seem. Britain brought out the full force of their military to deal with the rogue drones at Gatwick Airport in December of 2018, but they were unable to capture or down the offenders. “Shooting down” drones isn’t just illegal, it’s more difficult than you might think – and in complex urban environments or places with people on the ground, a rogue drone has to be stopped without having it fall on the people below.
That’s why counter UAS technology firms like Fortem Technologies are creating mitigation tools that complete their airspace security solutions. Today, Fortem announced that are shipping the AI-powered DroneHunter F700- a drone-catching drone, if you’ll excuse the phrase – to handle rogue drones safely in any environment. Check it out in the video below, and read on for more details.
