Eventually, though, Desmond hopes it will be useful for protection, especially in scenarios where people don't want to get too close to a drone.

The DroneGun, according to Chairman Peter James, provides "a sophisticated drone response technology" that enables prisons, airports, defense firms, and commercial arenas "to monitor their airspace and respond to any potential threats". USA and Australia-based firm DroneShield has developed a rifle-like gun that uses signal-jamming to disable drones at a distance of up to 1.2 miles away and bring them safely to the ground.

With this new technology, anti-drone teams may even track drone operators. It also has technology capable of blocking Global Positioning System and the Russian equivalent, GLONASS.

It also immediately stops any video feed back to the device's operator. The objective here isn't to shoot down the drone, it's to force the unidentified aerial vehicle to land right there or return to where it flew from. The only problem is that it's now not FCC certified in the US. The DroneGun is already being called out as a fake on the internet, though the company behind it (Droneshield) looks real enough. You can also buy a broad-range omnidirectional drone detector and long-range sensors for extensive drone detection. While it might sound a little over-the-top given the growing ubiquity of drones, the company's motto is simply to protect and serve.
