DroneShield reports an initial order from a defence customer for its target area-specific Satellite Denial Systems. DroneShield has used GNSS denial against drones/UAVs for number of years as part of smart defeat capability within its products, says the press release. The company has developed a number of techniques during that time and has growing experience in this domain. Importantly, DroneShield systems work on focussing the disruption on a specific targeted area.
A FVEY government (FVEY, or Five Eyes, refers to U.S., UK, Canada, Australia and NZ) has requested that DroneShield develops this capability to the next level with a paid research and development project, expected to be followed by a series of further projects, each project including more advanced development of the system.
DroneShield’s CEO Oleg Vornik commented: “Both Electronic Warfare and Satellite Denial represent closely adjacent areas to our core C-UAS space, with the learnings able to be channelled into our C-UAS work, in addition to the contracts on their own representing value for the business.”
There are multiple Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) used around the world – the US GPS being the most known, alongside of the Russian GLONASS, the Chinese BeiDou and the European Galileo system.
