Quotable: “CITADEL’s goal is to secure the skies from nefarious drones. To do this, CITADEL has built a proprietary system that deploys a shield around high-risk targets and gives security teams the ability to automatically ‘depilot’ a drone as it encroaches into restricted airspace.
“All of this is accomplished without disrupting normal communication devices like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and cellphones.” – Daniel Magy
Notable trend: “The presence of a U.S. anti-drone system, while a seemingly sensible counter-measure against the Islamic State’s fondness for using the remote-controlled aircraft, is a small glimpse into how the American military is adapting to evolving battlefield threats in the wake of its two protracted ground wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.” (Washington Post, July 15, 2016)
