How we use birds of prey to intercept hostile drones

Not every location has the same threat of drones.

A drone doesn’t have be a threat at all. Is a drone carrying a HD-camera? This could be a threat but doesn’t always have to pose a threat.

Our first step is always to do a Threat analysis. The next step is to select the best combination of contra drone solutions. Detection & classification and of course neutralisation (interception). After a drone incident it is important to investigate the background of the incident and to share the incident data.

We are working on a Database with global drone incidents and future threats (also Red teaming).
