How to disable a drone on your property?
- Shooting down drones with guns. Shooting down a drone using a good ol' shotgun is one of the easiest and effective methods BUT this isn't for common people. ...
- Using anti-drone drones. This is a much safer way of bringing down a rogue drone from the skies.
The US Air Force said in September that it will test a prototype of Raytheon’s “Phaser” anti-drone system, which uses a burst of high-powered microwaves to stun a swarm of commercial drones while frying their electrical components. Counter-drone lasers, which are also reportedly undergoing Air Force testing this year, are better at incinerating one drone at a time. Both of the “directed-energy” weapons could be used in a single system. The Turkish military has also used drone-downing laser technology.
Cutting communication signals between a drone and its pilot is by far the most popular counter- drone approach. “Jamming rifles” are able to target the right spectrum, but if you don’t want a crash landing, “spoofing” allows you to commandeer a drone by sending false GPS signals that guide it to where you want it to go. “Perhaps the biggest long-term drawback to spoofing (and jamming for that matter) is that in the not-to-distant-future there will be autonomous drones with no communications links to the operator or a satellite,” Holland Michel says.
Taking a drone out of the sky, especially with an actual gun, does not take a whole lot of firepower. According to Cornblatt, "Drones are so fragile that almost anything that hits them or touches them is likely to cause them to crash or lose orientation."
That being the case, virtually any firearm can absolutely thrash a drone if
it draws blood, so to speak. 9mm pistols on up to full-on sniper rifles stand roughly the same chance of turning a hit into a kill. Even lowly pellet guns—some of which have muzzle velocities on order with that of a .22 caliber rifle—stand a good chance at doing fatal harm. "If you were to hit a drone with [a BB], that pellet would penetrate and certainly cause some damage," Cornblatt told me. Should you find yourself in range to hit it with a rock or a baseball, that's likely to be a game-ender as well.
