Battelle DroneDefender™ 

Directed-energy Unmanned Aircraft System Countermeasure

 This device has not been authorized as required by the rules of the Federal Communications Commission. This device is not, and may not be, offered for sale or lease, or sold or leased in the United States, other than to the United States government and its agencies, until authorization is obtained. Under current law, the DroneDefender may be used in the United States only by authorized employees of the Federal government and its agencies, and use by others may be illegal. Due to Federal regulations, this video is a simulation of the Battelle DroneDefender™ system. It has, though, been successfully tested in Federal government-conducted field trials.


While once owned solely by the military, small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), or drones, are now widely available. With increased availability comes increased risk, especially to government personnel and assets.

Yet, traditional defense mechanisms against UAS, such as shooting them down, are not tenable under current regulations and other potential solutions pose safety risks. So how can agencies of the federal government defend against drones and protect what matters most?

The answer is Battelle’s DroneDefender™ system, which utilizes a non-kinetic solution to defend airspace up to 400m against UAS, such as quadcopters and hexacopters, without compromising safety or risking collateral damage.

This innovative system provides instantaneous disruption of unwanted UAS using two different defenses:

Remote Control
Remote control drone disruption
Radio waves
GPS disruption

Immediate response against immediate threats

Successfully tested and demonstrated against drone targets, the DroneDefender system provided a consistent response in field demonstrations. The remote control and GPS disruption responses are both fast acting, resulting in instant threat mitigation.

  • Up to 5 hours continuous
  • No more than 15 lbs. - configuration dependent

Innovative, cost-effective technology

The contemporary design uses cutting edge technology to neutralize the threat posed by unidentified UAS quickly and safely.

  • Multiple antennas
  • Disruption electronics
  • Picatinny rail mount available
  • Battery operated

Quick implementation

The easy-to-use, lightweight, point-and-shoot system requires no extensive training.

The DroneDefender system quickly disrupts the adversary's control of the drone, neutralizing it so no remote action, including detonation, can occur, minimizing drone damage and risk to public safety.

Protect your assets

Protecting what matters most is Battelle’s priority. Unidentified UAS can pose a serious risk to government agencies and officials, both military and civilians, but Battelle has a solution.

The DroneDefender system couples innovative technology with efficient design for safe, reliable drone defense, right at your fingertips.
