Drones are a common sight today. The future will have drones being used for a variety of purposes like delivery, surveillance etc. But are also a security threat, they can be used for wrongful surveillance in the wrong hands or to trouble someone with drone noise. So in order to get rid of drones flying over your private property or over places where it is not allowed we need a system to protect from drones.
So here we propose a system that can bring down drones from a certain range. For this purpose we make a drone catcher gun that can not only shoot but capture drones to check for evidence. This allows to capture the drone without destroying it to analyse what it was actually doing.
Our drone catcher gun is powered by a compressed cylinder/pressure vessel. We compress it with high air pressure. The cylinder is connected through pipes to a release valve that is released when user needs to pull the trigger. We further make a net with 3 cylindrical ends to carry the net over the target. The cylindrical bullets are fired through three different hollow cylinders for accurate shooting.
The three hollow cylindrical barrels are used to ensure bullets travel in a straight direction. The OD of the bullets is made to be just smaller than the hollow shaft. The barrels are fabricated in such a way that the net opens up when shot using certain angle deflection. The cylinder can be mounted on the back of the user so that the shooting pistol is lightweight to carry the net across towards the drone and bring it down.
