Monaco’s MC-Clic has unveiled more of the features of its anti-drone equipment. The company presented its anti-UAV rifle at the recent SOFINS security equipment expo near Bordeaux. Although not a rifle in the traditional sense, the gear has a rifle-like body with three antennas. Its power pack can be either transported on the rifle operator’s back or on board a vehicle.

MC-Clic commented it was originally approached in 2015 to develop a machine to stop drones approaching the Prince’s Palace, which it completed development of its anti-UAV rifle in a matter of a few months.

The rifle has a maximum range of one kilometre and its batteries allow for 90 minutes of continuous use. Once intercepted, the drone can be forced to land, since all commercial UAVs have an automatic safety mode that launches landing once the radio signal from its operator has been interrupted long enough.

The French Special Forces have indicated an interest in the rifle, MC-Clic said.
