    Boeing unveils new anti-drone laser cannon

    Published on Aug 28, 2015

    The aerospace giant has developed a new weapon system designed specifically to shoot down drones.

    People flying their drones over places where they shouldn't be is a problem that is likely to get a lot worse over the next few years, especially as these devices become cheaper and easier to use.

    Sensitive locations such as airports, military bases, power plants and government buildings are all having to take precautions to deal with the possibility of a drone incursion.

    There is even the potential for terrorist attacks using drones equipped with explosive devices.

    Now in a renewed effort to tackle this problem aerospace giant Boeing has developed a futuristic laser cannon that can be used to shoot down drones over significant distances.

    The weapon, which looks a bit like an overgrown speed camera, is both easy to use and portable.

    It can be set up by just two people, can be operated using an XBOX 360 controller and can be packed up in to four suitcase-sized boxes and moved to a new location very quickly.

    Once it locks on to a target the laser can take down a drone within just two seconds.

    It might not have the same visual appeal as the laser guns seen in science fiction movies but as drone use increases it is quite possible that systems like this one will see deployment across a number of sensitive locations over the next few years.

    SKYNET Anti-Drone Shells - Do they live up to the hype?

    Published on Apr 14, 2017

    I hoped to get some sample rounds of these Skynet shells from the manufacturer. It's a pretty cheap way to get millions of eyeballs looking at your product. But... they ignored me. I have no shortage of stuff I need to shoot, so it wasn't the end of the world to not shoot these. But, a person named Jon contacted me and offered to buy these for us to test. These are a pretty complex round, and it seemed a lot could easily go wrong with them. Each shell is almost $7, and even more when you add shipping. These are designed to damage quadcopters either by impact or by fouling the props with the string.

    We got 6 shells, we shot them all and show you the results, good or bad. Remember, this is not a sponsored video so there was no incentive to try to appease the company and only show cherry-picked shots.

    High-power microwave test

    Published on Mar 21, 2018

    From Sept. 30-Oct. 3, 2013, Raytheon’s high-power microwave shot down multiple tier one and tier two drones during a U.S. Army live fire exercise at Fort Sill, Oklahoma. The high-power microwave uses speed-of-light technology to disrupt and down unmanned aircraft systems. In this video, the system shoots down a Flanker tier one UAS.
