Anti-drone technology just took a huge leap forward.
The SkyWall 100 is an anti-drone cannon created by a group of English designers from startup Open Works Engineering. It’s essentially a high tech man portable net gun. The ingenious system weighs in at 22 pounds utilizes compressed air to launch an explosive net system to bring down drones over 100 meters away.
The shoulder-mounted air cannon uses an intelligent tracking system that locks onto a drone not unlike the TrackingPoint smart gun technology. This means that an operator with limited training or skills could still intercept a moving drone.
This system looks incredibly advanced and expensive so don’t expect to see it in the hands of anyone but wealthy governments anytime soon.
