With more and more hobbyists taking to the air with their Mavic Minis and Phantom 4’s, the number of rogue drones is constantly increasing. The DroneHunter F700 by Fortem Technologies allows users to capture and investigate these illegal flyers. Boasting over 4,000 real-world “kills” on their website, the Fortem Technologies drone uses a type of radar that allows for autonomous detection and capture.

While looking like an absolute brute of the skies, this sophisticated drone is capable of not only taking drones out, but catching them and towing them back to you for investigation. The primary benefit of this catch and retrieve strategy is that anyone below avoids getting clobbered by 30 lbs of drone falling out of the sky. The drone also offers a flexible undercarriage that allows counter measures for single, multiple or swarm threats. Oh, and did we mention it was made right here in the U.S.A.? Those folks at Drone Delivery Canada with their trash can drone need to take a lesson in style from Fortem Technologies.
