Re: How About Directed EMP?

The directed EMP sounds effective, but boring. I would prefer to make a statement with my air defense system, something more like commercial fireworks. But since I also don't want any interference when admiring my nude sunbathing neighbor from above in all of her 4k beauty, I guess I'll have to come up with appropriate countermeasures as well.

@Steve: Parrot have just release a much more updated drone, which looks amazing. I would love one but the wife would say, but you don't use the one you've got now!

I'm sorry -- her point would be? LOL

Parrot AR Drone

I have had one of the original Parrot AR Drones for about 3 years now and I think it was this device that kicked off the revolution of Drones. It cost me around £250 and I have spent nearly as much in spare parts fixing it after crashes in to trees mainly. It seems that when I take it above 6 meters up (above what the altimeter can register), I loose control over it and off it goes in the breeze. I was able to see a lovely shot of the local area from way up high though.

@DrFPGA: Thats what I'd use to bring down these pests.

Hey -- that's my future hexacopter you're talking about! :-)

Hi Elizabeth Merry Christmas:

I am trying to find the clip on the net of the Hochiki fire fighting water cannons that have pin point accuracy. They have knock down in large quantities LOL

@Crusty

one of the opertunities I am going to tap into is roof mounted radar tracking automatic air rifles to bring the pesky things down.

How about an air powered tennis ball launcher or similar to get around the gun discharge laws? I've seen articles about such things being used to launch lines into trees to get ham antennas up so they probably have sufficient range.

Sounds like it would be fun to test....

@ Max: I think that in 10 years time the sky will be full of drones doing all sorts of things and opening up all sorts of new business opertunities.


Yes one of the opertunities I am going to tap into is roof mounted radar tracking automatic air rifles to bring the pesky things down.

A high pressure water hose might do the same thing and not break any gun discharge laws.

@collin0: Therefor, the business on drones must have great potential.

I agree -- I think that in 10 years time the sky will be full of drones doing all sorts of things and opening up all sorts of new business opertunities -- but for me I just want to do it for fun -- take arial pics of my house or interesting pics of myself LOL

Actually, I often read news on EETimes. Some subjects are very attractive, many comment listed.But some are very boring, seldom comment found. Of course, this subject belongs to the former situation.

I find that the articles about drones are always cared by many readers. Therefor, the business on drones must have great potential.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
