Technology that mimics falcon attack developed to take down illegal drones

Technology is being developed to attack rogue drones just like a peregrine falcon hunts down its prey. The move comes following major disruptions at UK airports and is part of a £2 million bid to avoid a repeat of the chaos caused by the gadgets at airports. Radar, electro magnets and artificial intelligence (AI) are also among the inventions being tested out to find ways to “detect, disrupt and defeat” hostile, malicious and illegal uses of drones.
