Paper Abstract

This paper describes the findings of novel anti-drone obstacles development developed for stopping, fouling, and trapping Class I Mini and Micro unmanned aerial vehicles by targeting motors. This work, part of the Defeat Autonomous Systems (DAS) program, investigates counters to unmanned vehicle technology. Preliminary results demonstrate trapped drones, fouled motors that suggests this is a promising new capability to deny areas to drone incursions. Results indicate there is exists a sweet spot in mechanical properties that justifies further investigation into obstacle dynamics, modeling and simulation, materials, and notional system concepts to deliver a novel defensive obstacle capability against drones, expanding from the basic obstacle design.
