Commander's challenge

Justin Simpson, a member of the Kirtland Air Force Base team, aims a signal-jamming device at an unmanned aerial system as judges and range personnel watch Dec. 12 during the 2016 Air Force Research Laboratory Commander's Challenge at the Nevada National Security Site near Las Vegas, Nevada. Teams were given six months to develop a complete system to aid in base defense. Kirtland's system is able to detect, identify and track unmanned aerial systems with the capability of engaging through signal jamming and capture using a net gun.
