To fight drone swarms, the Corps wants a battle drone that can kill other drones

The Corps says it is looking at drones that can kill other drones to bolster the Corps’ air defense capabilities.

Alicia-Marie Kodis’s insight:
This article discusses the types of drones that the military has already acquired, and goes on to tell about the White House ordering a drone that would be able to kill other drones. At this time it is unclear whether it will focus on kinetic or on electronic attacks. They have also been testing man-portable gun-like systems that can use electronic warfare to fire at incoming drones. These haven’t panned out in the greatest way and the military wants to look towards other innovations to shoot the drones down at this point.
