If drones in your area are becoming a pain or you would just like to test your skills, a new Raspberry Pi powered wireless drone disabler system has been created and showcased this week over on MAKE.
The handy drone disabling system is fitted with a directional antenna constructed from a can and uses two scripts that are ready to use, allowing you to start taking out those bothersome drones with ease. Just be aware the owner might not to thrilled with your actions is they are not doing anything wrong.
MAKE explains :
Quadcopters capable of transmitting high-quality video are making it possible to affordably record unique perspectives. But these “unmanned aircraft systems,” as the FAA calls them, have posed new challenges in security, safety, and privacy, and many experts caution pilots to consider the implications of increased drone usage. In addition to the concern of constant surveillance, there’s the possibility that businesses (or hackers) can collect location information from mobile devices by using roving drones.
As a result, a cottage industry is forming for anti-drone technology. These devices come in a range of sizes, from plane-mounted to handheld tools. I will show you how to build our own rig to execute a particular network-based attack against one type of quadcopter control: Wi-Fi.
For full details on the Raspberry Pi powered wireless drone disabler jump over to the MAKE website for full instructions and everything you will need as far components.
