TEXAS – While some companies are showing off increasingly complex anti-drone solutions, Roger Ballard thinks he’s found a more elegant way to handle the threat. Rather than relying on detecting and analyzing communication signals from the drone, Ballard prefers a more direct approach with his shotgun.
“A lot of folks are just over thinkin’ this. I don’t need some tech system that forces the drone to land. I can handle this the same way I handled that intruder last week – with this guy right here [holding up shotgun]”, he proudly stated. “I betcha I can detect one way before any of those other systems; I hear them miles away and I”m always ready with my shotgun. Best of all – then they don’t come back, and I can finally sit here and read in peace”
