Why the Pentagon Fears Chinese Drones
The US Department of Defense signs a multimillion dollar contract with Fortem Technologies for the Drone Hunter system, which allows you to catch drones with snares on the fly.
The system is a drone equipped with artificial intelligence and radar that can chase and capture small aircraft on the network. The Pentagon plans to use this technology to capture drones that illegally invade closed airspace..
When the drone hunter gets close enough to a target, it shoots spider-man-style snares at it. Unlike other disarming systems, the Drone Hunter avoids damage or falling of the aircraft during interception, which ultimately makes it easier to determine who flew it..
The Pentagon also purchased an autonomous surveillance system from Fortem Technologies, which independently detects drones that have violated air borders and can alert personnel of a threat or immediately activate a drone hunter..
At the same time, she distinguishes mechanical objects from living ones, therefore she does not pay attention to flying birds..
Earlier, we also reported that the Turkish army has adopted quadcopters with a machine gun..
