Drones, UAVs or unmanned aerial vehicles are a new industry that have both hobbyist and industrial applications.
Used in the right hands they can inspect, survey, observe and deliver at low cost and can bring great advantage to the user. In the wrong hands they can also be used for criminal activity, general skulduggery and be a menace to aviation in general.
PDA Electronics has developed an anti-drone system called Repulse® which prevent drones from accessing designated areas. It is designed for Government, Military and Law Enforcement applications world-wide.
They came to Bray Plastics for their design and materials expertise to design an all-weather housing for their equipment. Their system is capable of being mounted on vehicles (military and civilian), buildings and ships as well as remote stand alone installations. Design criteria included cold and hot (-42degc +72degc ) all-weather operation with minimum signal degradation through the material.
Bray’s answer was a bespoke polycarbonate housing part formed, part fabricated (as shown in the video below) which can be produced cost effectively in low to medium volumes.
