'DroneHunter' Hunts For Unauthorized Drones

'DroneHunter' Hunts For Unauthorized Drones

This is not your average drone. DroneHunter hunts for unauthorized drones and captures them. It’s a fully-autonomous air defense mechanism. Stray drones can be specifically targeted. Or DroneHunter can learn to find rogue drones itself. DroneHunter captures the rogue drones with a net. Forcing it to land on the ground.

The goal is to stop threats at a safe distance from protected locations. It is able to detect, monitor, and autonomously capture drones in real time. Here’s how it works.

Timothy Bean: The way it works is very simple and straightforward. Usually, a drone is reported in an area where it shouldn’t be. This can be reported by a human. It can be reported by a ground radar system or RF system is detecting a drone in a no-fly zone. That system will autonomously queue or send a message to our DroneHunter. So the law enforcement or official will take the DroneHunter out of their car. Or the drone hunter will be deployed at the site because it’s there to protect the crew and infrastructure. The DroneHunter will receive an automated queue autonomously with no pilot, no joystick, will launch into the air and go to the sector where the target drone was found. Sometimes up to a mile or two away from the area that’s being protected. Or outside the perimeter of the no-fly zone. The DroneHunter will then autonomously with the onboard radar detect the target drone and will track it, and will safely shoot it down with a net and tow it away to a safe location. Either capturing it with a drape net or capturing it with a target net. 

DroneHunter’s airborne net gun can launch at 80 mph. It can hit a target up to 25 feet away. The captured drone is then delivered by tether or parachute. DroneHunter was created by Fortem Technologies. The company’s goal was to create AI-based airspace security and safety solutions. The DroneHunter is used by both the US Government and Military. The drone is also used around prisons and stadiums. It’s also available for commercial use. As our airspace changes, DroneHunter can keep any area protected and safe.

Timothy Bean: So, DroneHunter is used by anybody who wants to protect a no-fly zone. So, whether that no-fly zone is around a border, around a data center, around a stadium, an outdoor venue, anywhere you have airspace can be threatened by a drone. A drone bringing a bomb, or invading privacy or doing any kind of illegal surveillance. Those are the customers that want a DroneHunter to control their airspace and keep their airspace safe.

Fortem imagines a world where we can feel safe with autonomous drones in our airspace. No drones were harmed in the making of this video.

    What if area 51 had these dronehunters?

  2. PlugcityCM on December 12, 2021 at 11:34 am

    FPV drones at the moment. Hold my drink!

  3. Bob Russell on December 12, 2021 at 11:36 am

    Wow, I can see lawsuits in your future.

  4. Chad Baxter on December 12, 2021 at 11:37 am

    That’s great but good luck catching a high speed racing quadcopter

  5. Hex on December 12, 2021 at 11:41 am

    But what if I two DroneHunter hunts each other

  6. Space Sheep on December 12, 2021 at 11:41 am

    Don’t sell those to Russia

  7. Roy Clark on December 12, 2021 at 11:42 am

    Isn’t it every Americans right to own a drone?

  8. Rocks 25 on December 12, 2021 at 11:42 am

    Thats useless against my homemade signal jammer and RPG.

  9. II Goofy Lucy II on December 12, 2021 at 11:44 am

    great now we can’t use drones to see whats in area 51

  10. Etra Zombanya ウルトラ - アルバニー on December 12, 2021 at 11:45 am

    what happens if the drone shoots at the dronehunter before it catches it

  11. jordanlease1 on December 12, 2021 at 11:46 am

    Government : you are having to much freedom…

  12. CC Chodkowski on December 12, 2021 at 11:46 am

    This video was made with 2 drones launched at the same place at the same time. My drone only has a 20 minute flight time so that drone hunter better be fast to get to where my drone is flying.

  13. Steve Randall on December 12, 2021 at 11:47 am

    So the answer to drones is more and bigger drones? I’m up for that.

  14. Some Dandy on December 12, 2021 at 11:50 am

    Now we drones that will do this…with missiles!
    [edit] Shooting missiles down, btw. I know we have drones that _fire_ missiles.

  15. Kai Beckers on December 12, 2021 at 11:51 am

    👋 Bye Bye Drone from $900…..

  16. TALKINGtac0 on December 12, 2021 at 11:53 am

    You could always just try to jump and grab it.

  17. Dalgis Basulto on December 12, 2021 at 11:53 am

    Thank you drone hunter if one of these drones I’ll activate the flamethrower turret on my drone

  18. Sarah Bingham on December 12, 2021 at 11:54 am

    I want to see these things fight against each other

  19. E2 M5 on December 12, 2021 at 11:56 am

    You can order now at: Craigsmomsbush.com

  20. Stefan Rademakers on December 12, 2021 at 11:56 am

    That’s my drone 2:44

  21. Ruben Spyckerelle on December 12, 2021 at 11:57 am

    Okay so drones bully one another…. Cool welcome to the future

  22. TehButterflyEffect on December 12, 2021 at 11:57 am

    Ok I’m confused. He said it’s to protect secure locations, and then he immediately says it will target drones that are 1-2 miles OUTSIDE the protected airspace. What the heck? So people flying drones no longer have any rights?

  23. Bryton Massie on December 12, 2021 at 12:01 pm

    Respect for the parachute.

  24. Charlie Chuckleberry on December 12, 2021 at 12:02 pm

    Can I just get the net launcher? I want to catch that pervert’s drone that keeps spying on back yard pools and windows at a low altitude. Is it legal to shoot those down?

  25. Elevatorman 546 on December 12, 2021 at 12:03 pm

    Hypocritical drone. XD

  26. The Kindiger on December 12, 2021 at 12:06 pm

    You can’t catch a fpv race drone with that

  27. Zephyr on December 12, 2021 at 12:09 pm

    Let’s see that thing stop a 6s racing quad mid punchout

  28. The first sentient gazelle on December 12, 2021 at 12:09 pm

    they’ve already started predation upon each other

  29. exist_E on December 12, 2021 at 12:12 pm

    i’m probably the only one who hates this idea and would try to shoot a dronehunter if i saw one

  30. pappi on December 12, 2021 at 12:14 pm

    I need to build myself an anti-defense drone now

  31. Uranus on December 12, 2021 at 12:14 pm

    Add a scope

  32. TheSeeker008 on December 12, 2021 at 12:19 pm

    How much?

  33. Tomi Mantilla on December 12, 2021 at 12:19 pm

    Imagine seeing a drone that is used for racing troll this drone it would be really cool to watch that

  34. D Hansel on December 12, 2021 at 12:20 pm

    By putting this video out you are going to cause us legal drone flyers to hurt our hobby.
    The general public panics like a bunch of chihuahua in a thunder storm. They see this and start seeing drones all over the sky.
    You get some old busy body people with nothing to do and the first thing they do is call the FAA or police and scream bloody murder.
    This video could have been left off of youtube as it is fear-mongering clip.
    The next thing you could do is show a clip where someone stand up in a theater and screams FIRE.

  35. Vlad Teianu on December 12, 2021 at 12:21 pm

    What if the pilot uses the green lantern technique at the start if the movie?

  36. Destiny H on December 12, 2021 at 12:21 pm

    By the time your hunter arrives I am gone.

  37. • K a i • on December 12, 2021 at 12:21 pm

    meanwhile people make drones with net protection and nets to fire at dronecatchers

  38. Sisko The kid on December 12, 2021 at 12:21 pm

    Another advertisement. This channel sucks

  39. Tim Gerlach on December 12, 2021 at 12:22 pm

    What a scam. There are way better ways to take out drones than a net with some poorly coded vision algorithm in the sky, try a jammer.

  40. arbaz khan on December 12, 2021 at 12:23 pm

    depends who hit first

  41. rere439 on December 12, 2021 at 12:24 pm

    Death for dji 😜😜, but is the AI smart enough to capture fast random move from fpv drone?

  42. Bro on December 12, 2021 at 12:24 pm

    The time has come. DRONEWARS!

  43. Doc Brown on December 12, 2021 at 12:26 pm

    Kinda saw this coming yrs ago, it’s always a threat / response system, chess game. Places like KSC / NASA and surrounding aerospace firms and airports need this kinda stuff. I’m gonna post this vid to my FB site, some ppl won’t like it but since I’ve worked in security I like it.

  44. Jason Markle on December 12, 2021 at 12:27 pm

    NUU MY drone

  45. The ScreechingBagel on December 12, 2021 at 12:28 pm

    Amazon drones are shaking rn

  46. Neo Geo on December 12, 2021 at 12:28 pm

    Catch many birds this way?

  47. Geryz on December 12, 2021 at 12:29 pm

    Ironic.
    Unauthorized drones hunted by a drone.

  48. Robin Slee on December 12, 2021 at 12:31 pm

    who’s watching the watchers…

  49. blanshy19 on December 12, 2021 at 12:32 pm

    Gonna have to put countermeasures on my Mavic mini

  50. Lori Farrell on December 12, 2021 at 12:32 pm

    I have a problem with it when it leaves the no fly zone to hunt a drone.
