What is a DroneGun and what is the DroneGun MKIII

A DroneGun is a device that uses radio frequency jamming and GPS jamming to defeat drones. The DroneGun Tactical is manufactured by DroneShield whose offices are in Australia and the USA. DroneShield’s DroneGuns has been deployed on many assignments around the world including the 2018 PyeongChan Winter and the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Australia. A DroneGun breaks the command and control frequencies between the drone and controller, which forces it to enter the ‘fail safe’ and return to home.  When a drone is flying autonomously the GPS jamming capability of the DroneGun is used to prevent the drone from navigating via GPS satellites.

The DroneGun MkIII is a compact, lightweight drone countermeasure designed for one hand operation. The product provides a safe countermeasure against a wide range of drone models. It allows for a controlled management of drone payload such as explosives, with no damage to common drones models or surrounding environment due to the drones generally responding via a vertical controlled landing on the spot, or returning back to the starting point (assisting to track the operator), with an immediate cease of video back to the drone pilot.

Benefits of DroneGun MKIII

  • Lightweight: 1.95kg total device weight including battery
  • Effective coverage: Allows for an up to 500m coverage, in a wide range of environmental conditions
  • Fully Integrated: Battery powered hand-gun style solution, one person operation
  • Easy to use: minimal technical training for set up or use required, highly portable design
  • Immediate video cease: immediately ceases video transmission back to the drone operator
  • Enables investigation: drone remains intact and available for forensic investigation
  • Additional Frequency Bands: Option to disrupt multiple RF frequency bands simultaneously (433MHz, 915MHz, 2.4GHz & 5.8GHz)
  • GNSS Disruption: Optional GNSS disruption capablity (GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo)
  • Protected: Unit supplied packed in rugged carry case

General Benefits of DroneGuns 

Every counter drone system has benefits and limitations and its important that an end user understands them.  Benefits of DroneGuns include:

  • Very effective against the drone threat
  • Long or short range defeat capability depending on model chosen
  • Uses radio frequency jamming to break the link between the drone and the pilot to send it home
  • If the drone is flying autonomous, the GPS jamming capability will stop it
  • It is effective against a swarm of drones
  • It is a simple point and shoot operation
  • It is handheld & highly portable

General Limitations of DroneGuns 

Every counter drone system has limitations and its important that an end user understands them. Some limitations include:

  • The use of jamming technology is prohibited in many countries
  • There are collateral effects from the activation of RF or GPS jamming.  RF jamming will effect all users who are accessing the same part of the radio frequency spectrum as the drones. e.g. Some drones operate on the 2.4GHz frequency as this is the common Wi-Fi frequency. GPS jamming can effect navigation systems
  • Jamming is not target specific and will effect all drones within its range.
