New ‘Gun’ Looks to Zap Unfriendly Drones Out to 1km

While a good shotgun may be more gratifying, a Virginia-based company is marketing a new and improved directed-energy weapon aimed at snuffing wayward quadcopters and the like.

Drone Shield’s non-lethal Drone Gun Tactical uses radio control frequency disruption technologies to scramble the data connection between the drone user and said pesky drone itself. Resembling a device from a Rick and Morty episode, the 15-pound bug zapper broadcasts in wide-array of bands including 33MHz, 915MHz, 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz and is billed at being effective out to 1km.
