U.S. Army Show Off Latest Drone Defence: Stringy Streamers

The U.S. Army has showed off its latest defence against hostile drone units ‘STRINGER STREAMERS’ fired from a small interceptor.

Tests at Eglin Air Force Base saw Darpa's Mobile Force Protection (MFP) Program successfully demonstrate a counter-unmanned air system (C-UAS).

Darpa explained: “The primary drone negation mechanism shoots strong, stringy streamers from reusable interceptors that foul propellers causing loss of propulsion.” The demo highlighted the requirement that non-kinetic solutions could be employed in and around civilian areas.

Darpa is currently working with the military services to transition technology developed in the project into various acquisition programs.
