The bad news continued to pour in for Obama this week as he was told that his precious drone program may be coming to an end.
Millions of Americans are becoming increasingly concerned about the violations of privacy and safety concerns that are associated with drones, which are becoming more and more popular.
According to The Political Insider, one company is hoping to capitalize on Americans’ hatred of drones with their new product: the DroneDefender Rifle. Manufactured by Batelle, the rifle uses radio control frequency disruption technologies to safely stop drones in the air before they can threaten civilians or military personnel.
Batelle boasts that DroneDefender is inexpensive, easy-to-use, lightweight, point-and-shoot system with a demonstrated range of 400 meters. The rifle quickly disrupts the drone so that no remote action, even detonation, can occur.
“This is just the kind of tool we need to safely counter a drone threat,” said Dan Stamm, the senior researcher who led the project. “The DroneDefender can help protect us from those who may wish to do us harm.”
“It can help us in numerous settings, from the White House lawn to bases and embassies overseas; from prisons and schools to historic sites,” added Alex Morrow, technical director on the project. “It easily and reliably neutralizes the threat.”
This will undoubtedly come as awful news for Obama, who sees drones as his personal “secret weapon.”
We’ll add this to the long list of Obama fails!
