Police has finished training eagles to deactivate drones




The first sea eagles that can pull from the air drones for the Dutch police are ready to be deployed. The police are experimenting with multiple ways to turn the unmanned aircraft.

The police hires the bald eagles in a company, but also self-small raptors bought that receive training for one year. The project will cost several tons, writes the NIS. Facilitators must, among other things ensure that the animals get injured during their work. “In professional drones of three kilograms or more can cause the engine and propellers cuts in the legs and claws of birds,” said police spokesman Dennis Janus. TNO research has shown.

The police have to investigate how the claws of the animals can be protected. Conversely, the drones can be damaged after an interception by the birds; this would have happened in the meantime ten times at testing. The eagles will be used at events where they should stand ready to drones, in practice, probably mostly quadcopters to intercept. The police is working on other methods, such as drones with schietnet and -wave systems that operate based on UHF to frustrate the operation of drones.
