Drones are increasingly used to jeopardize aircrafts in airports, disrupt sports events, smuggle weapons and drugs into prisons, and harass politicians and celebrities. Current anti drone measures-electromagnetic guns, GPS spoofers, RF jammers and net throwers–are ineffective and unsafe in urban environment. Founded by Israeli electronic warfare and cybersecurity experts, D-Fend is developing a system that detects and identifies unauthorized drones and land them safely in a designated location
We detect, identify and safely intercept rogue drones in urban environment
