Gatwick and Heathrow invest in their own anti-drone tech after Christmas chaos » Drone Accelerator
Drone Major Group
by on January 7, 2019
THERE WAS ONE big winner from the drone chaos that engulfed Gatwick and news headlines over Christmas: manufacturers of anti-drone technology. Not only did they get a nice advert for what happens when you don't purchase protection, but they've made millions of pounds' worth of sales as both Gatwick and Heathrow have opened their wallets to make sure it doesn't happen again.
Never mind that in the wake of releasing the only two suspects without charge, the police briefly indicated that the drones may not actually have ever existed, it's better to be safe than sorry. And in this case safety comes in the form of multi-million pound security updates for both airports.
Neither airport has revealed what technology has been purchased, presumably for the same reasons that you don't go bragging about the burglar alarm you use on burglary forums.
