    I see a day coming when flying in the city or near any sensitive area will be highly risky, regardless of NFZ's from DJI. Check out this article, and this manufacturer that make drone counter-intelligence and defense equipment.

    Is only about $$$ and a piece of the pie.
    If they can not make a drone, well lets make a device to shoot down the drones. They will feed on the drone fear and sell this technology to all that wear tin foil hats.
    Detection is OK but jamming and shooting down the drone is illegal same as is illegal to use cell phone jammers in restaurants and movie theaters.

    This is going too far. Next time, some yahoo will shoot out the operator.

    How can they interfere with the operation of an aircraft (other than gov. & infrastructure) without violating laws?

    Here's another California based company I posted about last week doing similar.
    Makes a Phantom look like it has turrets. This is more about downing a quad than detecting.

    They can connect to the wifi and ping it till it is unresponsive, or send out radio signals which could interfere with the drone which is not illegal, but what is illegal are radio jammers, these could take down a drone quickly, they are illegal but that hasn't stopped their use. (DO NOT ATTEMPT)

    Reading how the system is said to work it states you can safely take control & land the drone safely. After watching the short video it most definitely does not seem to be landing it safely! Looks more like it falling out of the sky. So if it were at a much higher altitude it could possibly harm or even kill someone.

    I don't see it as being acceptable for that reason.

    If this becomes available to the general public....a lot of drones are going to be lost mysteriously.

    According to the Skysafe website, it will only be available to certain organizations. Hopefully, this means law enforcement agencies? Otherwise, providing it to the general public could result in serious consequences as I stated earlier. Whereas, the short video clearly demonstrates it literally falling out of the sky. Not (as they say) can be landed safely.

    I think he's referring to jammers. Not the device shown in the OP

    Some people will get annoyed with people on cell phones and use it to end their call, for example, some people might get annoyed with drones and use it to crash them.

    What if this thing takes down a plane thinking it's a drone?
