San Luis Obispo based WhiteFox Defense Technologies demonstrated it anti-drone technology at the recent Xponential Trade Show in Dallas. Their lead product, the DroneFox, detects, identifies, and mitigates drones with a multi-mile range and is intended to provide a solution for responding to dangerous sUAS.
At the show WhiteFox performed a series of operational tests for attendees including Michael Huerta that, according to WhiteFox CEO Luke Fox, performed flawlessly for all of the tests.
“The DroneFox demonstrated air-tight tests all week, without a single problem all the way through the kill chain from detection through threat assessment and into a safe landing,” Fox said.
“The potential harm drones can cause, whether it’s drug smuggling or corporate espionage, is prolific and growing as the technology advances. What’s needed now is a solution that is adaptable and deployable to a diverse set of operations, which is why and how we designed the DroneFox.”
The DroneFox is a SWaP-C optimized, portable solution which uses a novel method for tracking and taking temporary control of drones: a “master signal” which allows its operator to choose from a dynamic set of responses including land, return to launch, confiscate, and reroute.Unlike jammers and other non-kinetic products, the DroneFox can select the exact signal it wants to manipulate, without interfering with any others signals—even other drones.
