Frequency spectrum management can be a real pain in the ass, when coupled with countering UAV’s I don’t envy those with that job.
Cell phone detectors exist and are in use by DOD. Easier, IMO, to detect contraband phones and confiscate then to barrage jam them.
According to https://www.fcc.gov/general/jammer-enforcement federal agencies are exempt from FCC regs (with federal spectrum being managed by the NTIA instead) - is it more of a community relations issue so, as Swanee said, everyone's WiFi and smart homes don't go haywire? Same reason the DOD can conduct "interference tests" of GPS on various ranges.

You can bet there would be hell to pay if federal government activity in frequency bands interferes with critical civilian functions, with 'critical' being defined by the public and politicians, the hammer would come down pretty hard unless it was a wartime or emergency situation.

The FCC’s Pen Register and Wiretap statute prevent federal (DoD) agencies from doing a lot of things that can help with the c-UAS problem wrt signal detection, collection and jamming.

ZZZzzzzz...how for God's sake do VAQ pilots stay awake if this is what cockpit talk with their NFOs is like?😵

Can civilians purchase the EMP cannon? I want one to use against people who drive slowly in the left lane... slowly being how I choose to define it.
Need to get this idea to Cheddar, they can make this happen and you will be a hero !!! I want in on any early investment plans.

Seems like people are fixating in them cause they’re new.
No. It's not the same as birds. Not in the slightest. You can't control a bird. Usually they dive away, but not always. Bird strikes are part of the risk of flying -- they were here before us, they'll be here after us.

Drone strikes are 100% preventable.
