CellAntenna gets patent for system for detecting and defeating a drone

The engineering team of CellAntenna International has been awarded US Patent #9,529,360, for System and Method for Detecting and Defeating a Drone, the company said.

The patent and subsequent invention, represents a major advancement in the search for systems defending against the malicious use of drones.

The growth in the use of hobbyist drones in the United States and around the world has presented a security threat to the public, law enforcement agencies and safety of airports and airspaces used by aircraft. Since the use of jamming equipment is illegal in the United States, the invention represents an innovated way in which to control the UAV through spoofing of control channels using specific technology overriding the remote-control ability of the drone.

Headquartered in Coral Springs, Florida, CellAntenna International LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of CellAntenna Corporation, designs and manufactures tethered drones and high power amplification solutions for the control of cell phones designed for use by government agencies both domestic and overseas.
