DroneShield's DroneGun takes out drones like a boss (VIDEO)

Because sometimes using a shotgun just isn’t a viable option, DroneShield introduced the DroneGun to take care of those pesky flying cameras.

Although the 13-pound “gun” is somewhat rifle-shaped, it doesn’t actually fire a projectile, but rather emits a signal – from up to 1.2 miles away – that jams the unwanted drone, rendering it useless to the owner. The holder of the DroneGun, however, has the power to either land the drone or signal it get out of the area.

While the DroneGun sounds like a fun – though rather expensive – way to annoy nosey neighbors, that’s not exactly its intended purpose. In fact, it was created with government agencies, airports, law enforcement and military in mind. DroneShield hopes the “gun” can be used to stop explosive-carrying drones, keep illegally flying drones out of restricted spaces and drug-dropping drones out of prisons.

“We certainly feel that a jammer is a safer way to bring down a drone than shooting it,” Oleg Vornik, DroneShield’s chief financial officer, said in an interview with The Washington Post.

Presently, the DroneGun, which was introduced in the U.S. Monday, is not available to the general public, but federal agencies only.

“In terms of how this is sold, there is clearly a very controlled process,” Vornik said. “In most developed countries around the world, there is a very narrow bandwidth of customers we can sell to.”
