Counter-Drone Technology
Militaries can designate certain sUASs
as authorized, so these drones can continue
to perform their vital functions
without interruption during the rogue
drone mitigation process. And by pinpointing
the pilot's location at the point
of takeoff, the military can focus on the
terror source, ending the cycle of repeat
attacks.
Cyber-takeover technology can 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 anti-radar
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.
During the mitigation process, the
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.
