Counter drone company DroneShield and sensor specialist Teledyne FLIR have announced a collaboration to offer a joint sensing and mitigation solution for unmanned aerial threats.
As part of the collaboration, Teledyne FLIR is extending its counter-UAS thermal imaging sensing technology to the DroneShield platform, which features AI and machine learning software algorithms via radiofrequency (RF) sensing and computer vision technologies. The addition of Teledyne FLIR thermal camera hardware and expertise will enable military customers to improve detection, including identifying and tracking numerous unmanned threats in the thermal and RF spectrums at considerable range, within a single system.
The combined sensor offering has secured an initial marquee customer, a major Western military agency, which will be deploying the combined system at a military testing range.
Oleg Vornik, DroneShield CEO, commented: “We are already working together on multiple tier-one global opportunities, including having jointly secured the initial marquee DoD customer for our combined offering, which incorporates our radiofrequency sensors and DroneSentry-C2 command-and-control system. The joint system’s capability, plus the combination of Teledyne FLIR and DroneShield channels to market, strongly positions the combined system for a meaningful-scale rollout with Five Eyes partners and approved allies globally.”
