More and more attention has been paid to the field of wireless signal interference

The DroneGun MKIII is a portable pistol-shape drone cell phone jammer designed for one hand operation, coming in at a weight of 4.3 lbs. The company believes this product is peerless globally, for its combination of size and effectiveness.

As the drone industry is taking off, some individuals and groups have started using drones for malicious purposes around the globe. Many companies are watching the trend and are trying to get into the counter drone industry. They have introduced all sorts of drone guns, anti-UAS shotgun shells, attack birds, net cannons, lasers, missiles, radio drone jammer, radio spoofers, etc.

When the USS Boxer took down an Iranian drone in the Strait of Hormuz, it apparently represented a baptism by fire for new technology. The Wall Street Journal understands that the action was the US Navy’s first use of MADIS (Marine Air Defense Integrated System), an anti-drone system adapted for the sea. The technology uses jammers to block a drone’s communications and force it to crash. Some versions of MADIS can also fire at the drones, although it’s not clear that was the case here.

Governor from 2003 to 2011, Sanford was South Carolina’s top politician when one of the state’s prison officers was nearly killed in a hit authorities said was orchestrated by an inmate using a cell phone behind bars. In 2010, Sanford stood with Correction Capt. Robert Johnson to call on FCC officials to act on a petition to let the state start a pilot signal jamming program.

The LMADIS system comprises two all-terrain vehicles, called Polaris MRZRs. One serves as a command unit, while the other is outfitted with sensors and signal-jamming equipment. The sensor unit feeds information to a tablet on the command and control MRZR, from which an operator can track an incoming drone, get visual confirmation that it’s hostile, and disrupt communications between a drone and its home using a radio frequency blast.
