Default Uk Airports and the Drone stories continues

We all have read about the shutdown of Gatwick Airport .... well the story continues and is interesting ...

https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-46754489

Careful reading of the news item shows a bit of mis-information going on ...

For many reports previous and also the photograph taken on top of GW Terminal building ... not sure if its North or South ... shows the Drone Dome or what is supposed to be the DD Israeli system.
Now the report says that a different system 'undisclosed' was used by RAF Tech to protect the airport during that situation. That now GW has spent ~5m on a system to install ... and Heathrow similarly. Both airports not stating which system.

I have throughout this sorry affair been gobsmacked that a fully tested and viable UK system ... UADDS Blighter ... has been available for more than 2 years for just this work ... even the USA took test setups of the Blighter and proved its working prior to GW events ...

Curioser and Curioser as the saying goes ...
