And who would be to blame if the said drone crashed into a residential area after being zapped by the EMP???Thanks, interesting.
I think offensive electronic action by authorities against offending aircraft (jamming/circuit disruption by high power EM energy through high-gain antennas to bring them down) may be an important tool in cases of big problems (disruption at airports, rescue operations, etc). It would presumably bring a quick end to that specific episode and having the device in hand gives a useful starting point for more investigation.
Not to mention the effect it would have on legitimate electronics that just happened to be nearby.
