Faucett was hesitant to reveal too many details about the system, but he did say it would be able to identify UAVs by their electromagnetic signature, alert the system owner and "neutralize the drone's capability to see you with its camera."
To debunk chatter circulating on the Internet that his system is some sort of weapon, Faucett was blunt.

"We don't interfere with the drones navigation in any way. We don't jam anything. We don't intercept anything... . This is non-combative. That's really important," he said. "We've taken great pains to design systems that aren't going to get shut down or be outlawed or become illegal."
In fact, he even has a sense of humor about his system's video interference capabilities. "The camera just won't be able to look at you. Actually, at some point, we can show the operator at the other end a little movie or something," he said, according to Stone, with a laugh.

Assuming the system operator would be able to choose the video, the possibilities are endless and beg the questions: What video would you choose to show intrusive drone pilots? Though it doesn't have to be a music video, I might go En Vogue's "My Lovin' (You're Never Gonna Get It). Or maybe a video of the NBA's All-Time Greatest blocked shots.
