In today’s rapidly evolving technological landscape, the rise of unmanned aerial systems (UAS) poses significant security challenges. Enter Paladin, the autonomous drone designed to combat rogue drone threats with unparalleled precision and efficiency.

Taking down rogue drones

Paladin is capable of taking down Group 1 and Group 2 drones or sUAS threats, which equates to drones with maximum takeoff weight of 55 pounds and a maximum speed of 100 knots.

Lawrence Mansour, who posted the video to their Instagram account, shared the following description along with the video.

Paladin is a Group‐2 Low Collateral Effects Interceptor (LCEI) designed to defeat Group 1 & 2 small Unmanned Aircraft System (sUAS) threats. It is designed for security operations with a suite of security missions such as perimeter security, sUAS interception, loudspeaker interdiction, and fenceline inspection. The Paladin system has been built on the best and most affordable commercial UAS, reducing production cost.
