As the market for commercial unmanned aerial systems explodes, so does the potential for savvy entrepreneurs to make a few bucks by hawking a variety of anti-drone products.
"You're going to get a whole subindustry of people providing jammers for systems, or creating a cone of silence [to hide from drones] or whatever else you're looking for," said Doug McDonald, director of the North Dakota-based Unmanned Applications Institute, a nonprofit that promotes the use of unmanned aircraft systems in the region.
"It makes everybody refocus on securing [citizens'] privacy" rights, Mr. McDonald said. "We just have to educate people more effectively. What we don't want is to lose a technological advantage to the point where competing nations are ahead of us."
