It's a bigger drone, probably fixed-wing, that catches
drones that fly where they shouldn't. First, it carries a
receiver, to receive the reflections of a ground-based
radar's beam from the offending drone (which should be
closer the receiver is to the target). It
has a grabber to
grab onto it, and motorized spinny notched
things that sync up with its rotors/propellers (by
stroboscopy), grab them in their notches, and bring
them to a stop. Then the drone-grabbing drone can bring
the rogue drone down for a safe landing. If designed with sufficient adaptability, it should be
effective against fixed-wing and rotary-wing drones of all kinds, up to a certain size.
