TSU will teach drones to capture air intruders
The staff of the TSU Faculty of Innovative Technologies, working with an industrial partner, have developed a hardware and software system for hunting spy drones. A distinctive feature of the scientists’ invention is that the watchman drone operates autonomously, does not require manual control by the operator, and is capable of blocking the control channels of a spy drone.
- Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have recently become increasingly accessible. This led to an increase in cases of industrial espionage, and hooliganism using UAVs is also growing, - explains Stanislav Shidlovsky, dean of the TSU Faculty of Innovative Technologies. - The methods that are used to solve these problems are still technically imperfect: either neutralization of the spy by an attacking drone with manual control, or birds specially trained for hunting.
