Drone Defense? Plasma ‘Force Field’ to Protect Against Shock Waves

Seems like this could defend against drone incursions?

Boeing Has Patented a Plasma ‘Force Field’ to Protect Against Shock Waves

Boeing’s proposed system involves using a combination of lasers, electricity and microwaves to rapidly heat up the air between the vehicle and a blast. This heat creates a plasma shield that’s denser than the surrounding air and able to deflect or absorb the energy from the incoming shockwave.
