Using a Drone to Catch a Drone

A team at Michigan Technological University has demonstrated a “proof of concept” design for a drone capable of shooting out a net that can entangle and capture another drone, disabling its ability to fly. In a law enforcement environment, just destroying a done that has penetrated restricted flying space may not be desirable. This concept offers an alternative.

Proof of concept prototype of a drone catcher system to intercept and physically remove the intruding multi-rotor drones from the protected areas (patent pending). This system offers a viable solution when force-landing or shooting the drones would jeopardize the safety. A patent is filed. More info in
