This work proposes a proof of concept along with a prototype of a multi-agent autonomous drone system that can be used to detect, and capture a intruding adversarial drone. The functional Counter Unmanned Aerial System (CUAS) prototype is used to convey the feasibility of a persistent multi-agent aerial protection and apprehension system by demonstrating important features of the mission through both simulation and field testing.
