When asked about the use of the new software in situations like the Gatwick drone incident, Mr Vornik said: “That was our idea. It works a bit like Google Maps, showing us a picture of an area and an accurate identification of the drone pilot’s location.
“The system can detect when a pilot communicates with a drone by accessing the ‘uplinks’ and corresponding “downlinks”.
“The location of the pilot can be found and they can be arrested, it would save a lot of money.
“It can also watch the drone’s video feed using radio frequency detection sensors – there is nothing on the market like this.”
CEO Oleg Vornik has not yet revealed the exact cots of the system but did confirm that the rifle ranges from five to seven figures.
Mr Vornik added that the system could be used to protect airports from done incursions.
This could prove particularly helpful in British airports as Gatwick and Heathrow airports were victims to drone incidents 33 hours before Christmas last year and early into 2019
The Gun is able to deactivate flying drones from more than 3,000 feet (10,000m) by using jamming radio frequencies fired from the rifle.
Australian defence company Drone Shield has developed a rifle that deactivates flying drones quickly and effectively in a promotional video. In the video, a soldier can be seen donning the oddly shaped rifle and running into range of a drone deployed in the area. He then aims through his scope while showing the dials and selectable frequency settings positions on the rifle.
