Description: Drones used in intelligence gathering and espionage are a threat to military personnel and national security, which creates a demand for a device that can disable drones without risk to life. Built specifically for the Navy, the Anti-Drone Device is designed to detect and disable drones autonomously. It consists of a microcomputer, LCD screen, Wi-Fi antenna and protective case designed to withstand the elements, such as rain, wind and humidity. Once a drone is detected, the device automatically connects to the Wi-Fi access point of the drone and sends commands via Telnet to shut it down.
