Fighting Fire With Fire: Japanese Police To Catch Small Drones With A Giant Net-Carrying Drone

December 15, 2015


This is a video from the Japanese police featuring a giant net-carrying drone they built that can catch other, smaller drones. They plan to deploy a fleet of the anti-drone drones to protect government buildings starting next year. An interesting concept. Except what happens when the drone you're trying to catch is bigger than your drone, and has a bigger net? Or doesn't have a net at all, but a powerful burning laser? What then? "Call Godzilla." Okay I feel like you may have skipped a few steps.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to my buddy D.j., who is going to help me start catching drones so we can resell them at my newly opened GW's Used Drone Emporium.
