Do you guys know if there is way to protect our drones from anti-drone technology weapons? I was reading in the news how this technology is growing and can basically disrupt communication of our drones. Wondering if there is any technology out there that can perhaps shield our drones from it

I would think that the cost of those tools will limit who has them.
Probably not in your neighbor’s arsenal.

So technically, this would be anti-anti-drone technology. They THEY would come out with anti-anti-anti-drone technology..... where does it end??? what a world, what a world!!! :p

I am afraid that you are absolutely right. Even if the technology exist, not for civilians.

i wouldnt worry to much, apparently our drones are invisible already, because no one seems to be able to see them ,when they disrupt airports i am still waiting for the first visual confirmation of such an event

Doubt it, especially since DJI markets the Aeroscope to LEOs and will likely stay ahead of “hacking”.

Yes - Don't fly where drones are prohibited, especially govt or military installations where such technology is likely to be employed: prisons, high security installations, major airports, military bases, etc. Fly by the rules and you'll be OK.

(Not trying to be snarky: just passing on some plain advice from one drone pilot, who is also involved in the other side of the equipment you ask about, to another.)

Exactly this. Don't fly over/around sensitive installations/situations, and you'll never encounter anti-drone tech, ever. It's the simplest thing in the world to do.

Yes, your brain.

Don't fly where you are not supposed to fly and you won't be targeted.

I would be more worried about someone trying to shoot a drone down than any sort of radio jamming.
