DoD, DHS Buy 100 Units of Battelle's Drone Defense Tool; Dan Stamm Comments - top government contractors - best government contracting event

droneBattelle has sold nearly 100 units of a portable drone defense system to the departments of Defense and Homeland Security.

The nonprofit science organization’s DroneDefender technology works to disrupt the operations of unmanned aircraft systems at a range of up to 1,300 feet through the use of radio control frequency, Battelle said Wednesday.

“The idea is to quickly halt the drone and to stop it from being a threat,“ said Dan Stamm, a researcher who helped develop the drone defense tool.

Stamm teamed up with scientist Alex Morrow to build the system.

DroneDefender is a man-portable, point-and-shoot system that follows three pre-programmed protocols during encounters with unauthorized UAS, Battelle said.

The nonprofit company produces the technology at its manufacturing facility in Ohio.
