Ministers say unidentified systems have been readied to prevent further chaos of the kind that struck Gatwick last week
The government has said it now has detection systems that can be deployed throughout the country to combat the threat of drones.
Gatwick faced three days of disruption last week after drones were repeatedly sighted at the airport’s sole runway.
Flights were only able to recommence on Friday after the Army deployed anti-drone technology whose exact nature has not been disclosed.
The airport said it has spent £5m since last Wednesday, when the disruption began, on technology to prevent further attacks of a similar kind.
