The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s two-year-old Aerial Dragnet initiative could begin testing in 2018, an agency official told The Daily Beast.
If it works and the government funds it, Aerial Dragnet could help military commanders and law enforcement officials keep tabs on drones zipping through urban battlefields or flying over densely populated city neighborhoods in the United States.
And the new drone-tracking system might even include unmanned aerial systems, or UASs, carrying sophisticated sensors. That’s right. Drone-hunting drones.
