Rapere: An Intercept Drone to Seek and Destroy Other Drones
Back when they were expensive and complicated and fragile and having one was a big deal, people would be careful with them, and flying them would be enough of an event that you wouldn’t be thinking about all the ways in which it’s possible to use drones to do things that are (at best) obnoxious or (slightly worse) illegal or (way worse) recklessly dangerous.
What they’ve shown so far is a website with vague details and some crude graphics.And while they saytheir droneworks “in the lab,” they acknowledged thatit still hasa“long way to go before it goes commercial.”We asked them for some proof-of-concept videosbut haven’t heard back.
According to their website,here’s how Rapere would work: Lots of (12) high framerate (90 fps) moderately low res cameras (VGA) pointing in every direction, with structure from motion being used to guide the drone to it's target - hovering above the free floating target drone.
Rapere certainly won’t be cheap;it’s not supposed to be a toy, but a professional tool, and it’s possible that you won’t even be able to buy one without providing “some sort of proof of legitimate use, such as public safety officials, event organizers, private security firms, etc.” Again, though, restricting Rapere’s use doesn’t answer the question of whether it’s legal, since the upshot of using Rapere to destroy a drone is, as far as I can tell, fundamentally the same as just shooting that same drone with a shotgun.
