We have all known about various surveillance techniques using a drone to infiltrate aerial borders or monitor activity on enemies.
When it is about enemies, it is definitely useful. But, what if someone else is using a drone to keep an eye on our moves?
In this case, I am referring to the United States Air Force. Interestingly, the first Anti-Drone laser weapon system (Laser Dune Buggy) by Raytheon has been delivered to the US Air Force.
The anti-drone system uses infrared or electro-optical sensors to detect and track drones in its range. When it’s locked to the unwanted drone, it takes it down with its laser weapons within seconds of time (as you can see in the video above).
To make it portable, the laser system has been mounted on an all-terrain vehicle (aka buggy).
The company behind the anti-drone laser weapon system – Raytheon – claims that the system can utilize the power from a regular 220 Volt outlet.
They have not shared the exact details of the weapon (like the number of times the laser will fire). To add to the claim, they also mentioned that it can be paired with a generator if/when required.
What do you think about the exciting anti-drone laser system? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
