Birds of prey trained to take out drones

Can birds of prey help protect against drones?

During my flight test for my PFAW I was warned that I should not fly over a particular area of the test zone because birds of prey had a tendency to attack drones if they encroached on their territory.


Well, now it looks like the Dutch are taking this a step further and are investigating training birds to take out drones for the police. Perhaps to use for security at prisons, government buildings and military establishments.

The report below is from the Dutch Police website, translated for us by Google.

World first: police put raptors in to turn drones

Last update:

Netherlands – In an innovative project of the National Police in collaboration with Guard From Above, a company that trains raptors, looks at the ability to turn into birds of prey to intercept enemy drones.

In the future, drones are increasingly used and will increase the number of incidents with drones.Drones can also be used for criminal purposes. The police have therefore been working on researching ways to prevent unwanted drone use.

“There are situations in which drones are not allowed to fly. This has almost always to do with security, “said Mark Wiebe, innovation manager of the National Unit of the police. “There is a case where an air ambulance wild lands but could not because someone out there flew a drone. You can also imagine that people want to create beautiful images of an event and a drone to fly above the crowd. If the drone that falls from the sky, can be dangerous for the people. ”


Safety Net
Finding the ‘driver’ of an unwanted drone is not always easy. Therefore, the police is looking except for electronic solutions such as the adoption of an operating system, also for ‘physical’ capabilities to prevent unwanted drone use. The use of a safety net is an example of this, but also the ability to use before a specially trained bird of prey.

during a demonstration last Friday the police showed how this works in practice. Once the specially trained eagle the drone in sight gets them flying towards it, the thing grabs, and brings it to the ground.Wiebe: “The bird sees the drone as prey and takes it to a safe area, a place where he does not suffer from other birds or humans. We use in this project. ”
