Department 13, a counter-drone company, said today it has entered into a teaming agreement with Raytheon to "market and support existing counter-drone technologies and co-develop new capabilities."

"D13 and Raytheon initially will seek opportunities for MESMER, D-13's patented, low-power, non-jamming, non-line-of-sight, non-kinetic, counter-drone solution," Department 13 said.

According to the company, MESMER can detect and then stop, redirect or take control of drones.

Last year, Department 13 announced Booz Allen Hamilton had licensed its system for potential inclusion in military prototype demonstrations.

"The technology was procured solely to enable Booz Allen to demonstrate and enhance its general technical expertise and understanding of the challenges and threats presented by UAS and will not be used by Booz Allen for developmental purposes," D13 said.
