The risks posed by the misuse of drones have grown exponentially in recent years. The threat of drones is wide-ranging, starting with the use of drones by ISIS in combat in various countries, to reconnaissance drone flights by Iranian drones in military operations over the U.S. fleet in the Gulf, to civilian use of drones. Inadvertent penetration of man and machine. most likely) to the airport airspace.

Drone threats fall into two main operational concerns. The first is detection which can be achieved through a number of techniques, most likely through radar, passive RF detection, cameras, etc. The second, more acute, is the countermeasures. Few methods have been introduced so far, such as prayer birds, cast nets, short-range guns, hacking and deception, but the most popular and cost-effective method of operation is the use of drone jammer.

When countermeasures are raised to various security entities and airport authorities, several questions immediately arise because the main question is: “What if the drone lands on someone's head? One security guard even stated that he I'd rather have a plane crash than a drone on a child's head.

Before answering this serious dilemma, it is prudent to explore the well-known causes of the drone threat in most countries today, but few practical steps have been taken to mitigate the phenomenon. Here are a few reasons why the risk has yet to be responded to:

9/11: Every safety measure taken is usually based on a tragedy in which many people lost their lives, such as 9/11 before safety measures were taken. In our case, the question is we should ask ourselves ‘why do we always need tragedy to deploy the required safety measures? The answer to this lies in the second argument.


Psychological factors: Even when fully aware of the danger, people rarely take preventive measures. Examples are numerous, starting with people smoking, drinking and driving, etc. Also, since 9/11 has yet to happen, security groups will go the extra mile to ask their superiors to allocate funds for this threat. One might even argue that because of their size, it's hard to detect that something so small can do a lot of damage.

Most drones have a fly-home feature, which means that once we block the drone's connection to the ground with a drone signal jammer, I can leave the GPS connection unblocked and the drone fly home.
