Anti-drone electromagnetic rifle invented

The French company CERBAIR has presented a kit for tracking and disabling UAVs, which includes a powerful electromagnetic rifle.

Due to the availability of drones, many terroristactively use them in their operations. Despite their small size, unmanned aerial vehicles pose a serious threat to the military and civilian population.

Currently, to combat UAVs, devices are used that generate radio fields to interrupt the operator's signal, broadcast false GPS signals from the ground in order to disorient them, lasers, guns shooting nets and even birds attacking them in flight.

CERBAIR suggested another waycountering drones. The company has developed an anti-drone kit consisting of a backpack with a generator, a vest with a built-in UAV detection module, a targeting control tablet and an electromagnetic rifle. The kit allows you to neutralize drones outside the line of sight.

The system detects the location of the drone,analyzing the radio frequency spectrum in all directions. Once detected, the algorithms also track the azimuth position of the remote pilot using a directional antenna.

Recall that earlier in China, the first portable sound rifle was developed, causing a person to feel severe discomfort when aiming.
