Drone Jammer (AEGIS series) vs Eagles for immobilizing drones

Can you imagine a bird can immobilize a flying drone? A few days ago, I happened to hear that Swiss Police will raise eagles to terminate drones. I couldn’t believe it until I saw a training video clip of actual eagle catching a drone.Then I saw another news that some law enforcement in Europe decided not to train eagles for drone catching purposes anymore. Mainly because eagles sometimes don’t follow the order while training eagles cost a lot of money.

There are a number of ways to terminate drones while it’s flying. Nets are most often used but the problem with this is drone are flying fast. With drones’ evasive maneuvers, it’s hard to throw a net to catch the drone.

There is another way to catch a drone. If you have a drone jamming machine, it will immobilize a drone. When a drone is immobilized, it will hover the same location in the air until it drains its battery. But the problem with this scenario is that it takes usually 20 minutes to use up drones’ battery. In other words someone who is pointing a drone needs to hold its position for 20 minutes.

.

If the drone is in the combat area or an airport facility where you need to take care of the situation asap, you can’t really wait for 20 minutes or so. So in this case, nets come to play an important role. With a drone jamming machine, a drone will not move but hovering the same place, then one can throw a net to the drone to take it down. (Or shoot it down with a gun in combat place.)

BA Solutions offers a number of types of portable drone jamming devices. AEGIS-Drone sniper model is best for a soldier in combat environment. AEGIS-Drone sniper is a adapter type to a rifle gun. A very light unit has powerful range(usually a number of times longer range than a drone remote distance) with long battery time. Traditionally for a drone jamming operation, two units of soldier are mandatory as one unit should carry heavy antenna while the other unit shoot a drone down the a gun. But with AEGIS-drone sniper, one unit of soldier can do this and more.

While I like the idea of eagles taking down drones posing a threat to our society, we can’t control eagles mind 100%. There are a number of drone jamming solutions available but portable unit solutions are very limited. Usually portable drone jammer means a short range distance. But BA Solutions AEGIS drone jammers offer a long-range distance yet lightweight portable solution.

We also have a roadmap to add more companion products such as a drone with a capability of shooting nets to catch other drones in a close-range.
