Watch Your Drone Photography - Anti-Drone Weaponry Deployed to Biden Meeting
1

Petapixel has a story up about anti-drone weapons that were deployed for Biden's meeting with the King of Belgium.

The bazooka-like weapon held by the guard on the left is the SkyWall Patrol handheld drone capture system made by a British company called OPENWORKS Engineering. It fires a projectile (with assisted targeting) that expands into a net, physically capturing the target drone and using a parachute to safely bring it down to the ground.

The guard in the middle is holding a DroneGun Tactical by the Australian company DroneShield. The weapon can jam the signals used to control drones from over a mile away. Upon getting hit with the jamming beam, a targeted drone will automatically land vertically or return to its remote controller or starting location.
