be affixed to a military vehicle to
offer a bubble of protection, so
forces can enjoy full mobility without
limitations imposed by the rogue
drone threat. By operating mostly in
passive mode, takeover technology
maintains the element of surprise by
not electronically unmasking military
units. Other counter-drone methods,
such as radars, may emit signals that
can provide a trail of breadcrumbs to
terrorists, leading them and their antiradar
missiles directly to the target.
Cyber-takeover technologies, like
those provided by D-Fend Solutions,
function by passively and continuously
scanning and detecting unique
communication signals used by
commercial drones. Once detected,
they extract the drone identifiers for
drone identification and classification
and decode the telemetry signal
to extract the drone position with
GPS accuracy, as well as its take-off
position near the pilot in real time.

drone user pilot then loses control
of the drone, including video and
telemetry information. He cannot
regain control over the drone until
the process is completed. Meanwhile,
the cyber-takeover technology
emits a non-jamming solution that
transmits a precise and short signal,
taking control over the rogue drone
without interfering with other drones
and communication signals.
Controlling rogue drones and reaping
the accompanying intelligence is critical
on today's battlefield. Traditional
solutions are under fire for not
measuring up to these requirements,
while cyber-takeover technology
continues to evolve along with militants'
commercial drone technology.
