BT has signed a deal with Australian company DroneShield, which has worked with the British Army.
Its DroneGun Tactical weapon shoots rays to take down a target from more than a mile away.
BT will also offer clients use of the DroneSentinel, which can track a pilot operating the drone up to three miles away.

Well, there is the whole : “Where are the projectiles that missed heading?” thing...
Hell Yes! We’re gonna take your AR 40 Megawatt Laser gun!
Door to door ...
I can’t wait for the ray or laser gun and its technology to hit the American gun market. The left will have a heart attack. They will be easier to design and tool by 3-D than our conventional guns. God bless the Second Amendment.
Yeah, but it’s bird shot. Who cares?
For a second, I thought the headline was in reference to upgrades to what Tommy Sotomayor refers to as the “BT” series of Terminatrix. :P
