    Surely there is some electronic or radio jamming could be developed to prevent these items from operating near actual aircraft?

    I can see that idea being pitched to Channel 5 as we type - “Drone Wars”!

    Meaning that drones will continue to affect law enforcement /military operations with impunity.

    The Various criminal gangs in Ireland have been utilising drones for years to not only scope out targets but as an evasive/early warning system against Law Enforcement /rival gang operations against them

    The threat of small commercially available drones looms large over the U.S. military. After years of dragging its feet, the Battle of Mosul finally awoke the Pentagon as to just how complex and vexing the threat from these systems is. Now, ever more elaborate anti-drone defense concepts are hitting the field under rushed procurement concepts. One of those is the Light Marine Air Defense Integrated System (LMADIS), a highly mobile anti-drone solution that rides on a pair of Polaris MRZR buggies, and now the Corps is getting creative about how they put this capability to use.

    A great example of this is the amphibious assault ship USS Kearsarge's recent transit through the Suez Canal, in which LMADIS sat strapped to its deck, providing a much-needed albeit asymmetric defense for the multi-billion dollar technology packed warship.

    World first' as drone delivers insulin to Aran Islands
    Updated / Monday, 16 Sep 2019 20:34

    By Pat McGrath
    Western Correspondent

    Researchers from NUI Galway have successfully used drone technology to deliver diabetes medication to the Aran Islands.

    The test flight, from Na Mine airport in Conamara (Connemara) to the airstrip on Inis Mór, took around 15 minutes to complete.

    It is hoped the delivery can be used as the starting point for formulating more extensive drone dispatches to remote locations.

    Described as the world's first "beyond visual line of sight drone delivery" of insulin, the flight took place after the Irish Aviation Authority gave special permission to researchers.

    The test flight happened in a window between commercial flights to the island and involved detailed planning to ensure the correct safety procedures were adhered to.

    As well as researchers from NUI Galway, a range of medical, logistical and technical experts were involved in the project.

    They dispatched the insulin in specially designed packaging which was placed in a small parcel box on the drone.

    Operators on both air facilities were able to monitor the craft's progress throughout the 18km journey.
