Kaspersky anti-drone toolkit

"Weary of the threat posed by quadcopter drones flying into unwanted areas, developers with Kaspersky says it is working on a software platform ...................."

Unless Kaspersky have some of Nigel Farage's Brexit dust no quantity of software will stop a drone without the associated radio transmission equipment.

The likelihood of Joe public, or any non government business, successfully being granted permissions to transmit GPS and similar jamming signals is (I sincerely hope) a little lower than the square root of naff all.

So who are Kaspersky aiming this product at? I suspect that the security and police services have access to appropriate equipment already.
