New Tech Lets Israel Take Over Hostile Drones – Yaniv Kubovich (Ha’aretz)
Israel has developed anti-drone technology that can seize control of enemy unmanned aerial vehicles and land them anywhere.
“The system that we developed can detect hostile drones at a range of up to three and a half kms. [about 2 miles] and take control of about 200 drones at the same time,” said Asaf Lebovitz of Skylock, one of the Israeli companies that developed the technology.
“We have the ability to disrupt communications between the drone and its operator, and then to remotely take control of it and land it to check what it’s carrying and whom it belongs to.”
