In the framework of strengthening cooperation between the Navy and unmanned aircraft, the U.S. Agency DARPA has developed a special manipulator allows you to intercept the UAV to fly in the air, he said .

SideArm — the so-called new development — requires almost no upgrades from the vehicles on which it will be installed. She easily fits into a normal shipping container and can be quickly assembled by few people without prior training.

Testing new «» conducted on military drones from Lockheed Martin, whose weight reached 200 pounds. Experts said that the testing SideArm was excellent, but there is still a lot of new achievements — the device is now going to check on the ability to catch unmanned vehicles heavier, up to 500 pounds.
