This high-tech surveillance system can detect and take down intruding drones

As the popularity of drones increases, so does the need for protection against unwanted aerial intrusion or careless operators.

SkyDroner, made by Singapore-based security device developer TeleRadio, is a surveillance system designed to detect unwanted drones. But that’s not all: Upon command, it can actually take control and land the unmanned aircraft. The system can prove useful in protecting events, ports, homes of public officials, prisons and critical infrastructure.

“Drones have been increasingly used as improvised explosive devices and smuggling of drugs and weapons into prisons and even for taking video of celebrities in the privacy of their homes,” Jason Quek, TeleRadio’s regional sales director, told CNBC.

In some instances, an intruder drone can even be landed into a cage at a specific coordinate, where it would then be contained and prevented from relaunching.
