As in the past, this year’s Black Dart will test defensive systems of all kinds against drones of all sizes, from those as big as the 116-foot wingspan RQ-4 Global Hawk to mini- and micro-drones launched from tubes or even by hand.



“We’re open to looking at anything that anyone brings out there.”

Contractors, academics and military and defense organizations all take part in the tests. They provide the systems and pay their own way. “Our organization pays for the range time and all the range services,” Gregg said. “We provide surrogate targets for all of these systems to come and track to assess their own capabilities and, in some cases, take it out.”

So there you have it. If you have a good idea and a working prototype of a detection system or intercept system bust it out. Maybe Finnish that lazer cannon you forgot about of try out your attack falcon.

What a cool event to go to and watch drones get blasted, vaporized, shot, ect.

I am sure we can get some ideas going here on how to down drones.

I was thinking those trained falcons could take out small drones. Or a big net lifted in the air by small rockets.

I have a 100% sure fire way to take down drones, although, I will only divulge this information if I'm elected President.

If they were a problem in the US. My tactic would be that they have to land somewhere and I would attack that place .

You deal with Drones the same way you deal with wasps and flies.

Salt Cannons.

LOL, I have few ways, but why would I tell them?

I have IDEAS but I would need access to SAP special equipment to test them...

For low-flying drones as a hillbilly I'd like to keep it simple . When we get angry normally the first weapon we reach for is a shotgun .





One shot one kill .

Cool video but I think they are looking for "outside the box" ideas.

Apparently anti-drone systems is a big money maker.
The Boston marathon contracted 10 drone detecting sensors and an untold number of some kind of net guns.

Please go on about your ideas.

If you are really into that kind of stuff there will be all the big name contractors at the black dart event.

Do you have any prototypes? If so pics would be cool.
I am pretty sure most people have everything the need to build a jamming device in their home.

I am pretty sure you are wrong, nor do most people have the knowledge to make it work even if they did.

No, if you want low tech answers then look to low tech solutions. The kind of drones they are talking about here could be dealt with through simple chain or mesh nets. EMP Guns might not be handy yet, but a shotgun full of buckshot will take out most smaller drones in a few shots. Salt or Water Cannons could do the trick at high pressures, Dead Rising 3 has some neat ideas too...

Hmmmm.......I keep picturing something akin to a Pitcher Plant or Venus Fly Trap.......but then my head is a fun universe to live in.

Right, take your civilian ideas and let us know in advance what to expect, the best ideas will be used to evolve better counter-measures.
Brilliant.

yeah, they want to know how you would do it so that they can develop counter measures before you actually try to do it.

From the article cited in the op


As in the past, this year’s Black Dart will test defensive systems of all kinds against drones of all sizes, from those as big as the 116-foot wingspan RQ-4 Global Hawk to mini- and micro-drones launched from tubes or even by hand. Gregg said 55 systems will be assessed in tests including opportunities to knock down an Outlaw as it flies over the Point Mugu sea range.


It can be anything. If you can come up with a software program that can modify say a IR seekers to hit a drone you may well get paid for it.

And yes jammers are pretty simple to make.

I think you should read the article cited in the op.

Maybe you could even feed them roids or genetically modify them to take out even bigger drones.

Or just get dump ducks to fly into the intakes.

if you could get birds like that trained to do that I would love to see some videos.

Great big nets. attached to rockets fired at 45 degree angles in front of them.

Messy but effective.

Next.
