So UKs second biggest airport is closed for over 24hrs, due to some alleged drones that yet to be seen on any video, at the same time we posses the tech to deal with them, you can actually buy a plethora of drone radio jammers on a civilian market for crying out loud, yet you want to tell me that local authorities and the military cannot deal with this issue for over a day?! what the hell is going on, this is ridiculous.
Sure it's as easy as that? No repercussions from jamming? Like interfering with other, potentially important systems/communications?
Assuming such devices are actually available over the counter in the UK (I don't know either way).
Or maybe the focus is on tracking and eventually finding the drones and their operators, which I suspect is what the military have been deployed to do.
If they are jammed one day, what is to stop them appearing the next? Maybe at another busy airport, their very availability, lack of cost, portability is their advantage, so I suspect the authorities are going for catching those responsible rather than a quick fix for today, which might not even work and have other consequences.
