Project DroneCatcher started in 2015 when Dutch Police, Military Police and others called for solutions for the protection against UAS. DroneCatcher is a compact mechanically operated net system designed and integrated in small unmanned helicopter. From the flying platform a net is fired on a hostile drone. The net can be equipped with a parachute to avoid endangering people on the ground. The system is designed to manage potentially hostile drones in a controlled and safe way by capturing them and dropping them to safe location by parachute.
