Perhaps Ratheon should first develop technology that can ascertain if a drone is actually involved?

Surprised it is that hard to intercept a radio controlled toy drone broadcasting its GPS position.  Jam its frequency and make it go home.  Report to the airport it's home location.  Alternatively, just keep a database of land now commands for popular drones (Phantom 4, Mavic) and broadcast commands for it to land now.  It wouldn't be hard to intercept it's unique id code from its transmitter and give it commands.

The autonomous drones with no radio broadcast flying stealthily around would be a much tougher problem but currently represent zero drones flying around airports.   Raytheon seems to be making a much more expensive product to handle this very limited threat of stealth drones.

I think it would be easier and cheaper to keep a few $100 race drones and their $100 controller and a set of FPV goggles around for maintenance guys, or airport firefighters, to play with a few times a day.  Teach them where they can fly in a designated area.  Then if a drone is sighted or its signals detected, notify maintenance to take up one of the race drones to collide with the Mavic Pro 2.  A stealth drone would be an easy kill.

That would be funny. And not a bad job to fly around in off time for a drone demolition derby

I don't fly anywhere near an airport so I'm not worried about it.

The FBI should maybe investigate Raytheon if they want to get to the bottom of the drones at airports reports . it mostly likely is but ,Assume it isn't a Hoax  . a drone that could do what was reported by the pilots at >3500 ft going> 250 mph  would cost a minimum of 30,000 . Raytheon didn't waste anytime to step up to the plate with a answer to this terrible public drone menace , for a huge government contract of course .
give me a break people .
