DroneShield complements its drone detection products with the launch of the DroneGun jammer.

Issue 72 - March 2017

With Drone-related threats rapidly increasing and becoming progressively more common in areas such as terrorism deployments and prison contraband smuggling, DroneShield is pleased to announce their latest product offering, the DroneGun rifle-style portable jammer which works in conjunction with its drone detection technology to locate and neutralize potential threats by air. 

DroneShield’s DroneGun jammer is a “plug and play” rifle-style countermeasure that can be operated by one person against a wide range of drone models. The DroneGun jammer generally causes a drone to either perform a vertical controlled landing or return to its starting point, assisting an investigation to identify the pilot. DroneGun also causes the drone to immediately cease any video transmission to its pilot. The DroneGun jammer leaves the drone intact for forensic investigations.

“In the recent two months alone, various serious incidents have already been reported, such as the ISIS drone rigged with explosives causing fatalities and injuries in war zones. Drone-related threats are a serious issue and drones are getting into the wrong hands, putting public safety and privacy at risk as well as threatening national security,” says Peter James, Chairman of DroneShield. “DroneShield’s DroneGun jammer providers a sophisticated drone response technology that enables prisons, airports, defense, critical infrastructure, diplomatic, VIP, and commercial arenas to monitor their airspace and respond to any potential threats.”

With drone sales expected to double in the next four years and a growing number of drone incidents occurring daily, DroneShield’s launch of the DroneGun jammer is poised to respond to the unethical use of consumer drones and the resulting need for effective countermeasures to drone intrusions. DroneShield aims to help public and private sector customers take proactive measures against airborne threats to safety, security, and privacy.
