The Battelle DroneDefender, A Gun-Like Device for Safely Stopping Drones by Overpowering Their Control Frequencies

The Battelle DroneDefender is a new gun-like device designed to safely stop drones by overpowering their control frequencies. This causes the drone to act as if it has flown out of range of its operator, causing it to either hover in place or land.

Anti-drone measures have been used before that are designed to damage the target to knock it out of the air, but drones landed by the DroneDefender are unharmed, making it a unique option for drone defense.

A demonstration video simulates how the DroneDefender would work, showing a security guard forcing a DJI Phantom drone to land using the DroneDefender.
