DroneCatcher is a multicopter armed with a net gun. It can safely remove illicit drones from the air. After detection, by for example radar, vision, rf detector or an acoustic system, DroneCatcher is able to quickly approach hovering or moving threats. With the use of multiple onboard sensors, the net gun can be locked on the target. Due to DroneCatcher’s tracking capabilities, the drone will be swiftly caught by shooting a net. After the catch, DroneCatcher can carry the captured drone on a cable to a harmless place and release it there. If the caught drone is too heavy to be carried, the DroneCatcher can be used as a ‘controlled parachute’ to ensure low impact on the ground.
Delft Dynamics B.V. is specialized in developing drones in-house for stable, easy to control, aerial sensor-platforms. This is accomplished by intelligently combining computer and sensor technology.
