Airspace Systems raises $20 million Series A to take down dangerous drones with other drones.

There’s more than one way to get a drone out of the sky.

While many companies are looking to tech that digitally jam signals to land rogue drones, one startup is taking a more theatrical approach with a speedy drone that races at 2-3 times the speed of the fastest consumer options and takes down enemy drones that may not pop up on competitor’s systems.

Airspace Systems has built what it calls “kinetic capture” technologies, which currently consists of a ground-based system that identifies an offending unmanned aircraft, then launches its own drone to chase it down, fire a tethered net at it and carry it away.
Here’s a look the whole system in action from a video we did with Airspace back in 2016.
