Australian counter drone company DroneShield has enhanced the AI engine behind its RF detection devices. The instruments improved include the RfPatrol, RfOne and DroneSentry-X drone detection and tracking platforms. According to a company press release, the key aspects of the firmware update include the following:
- Seamless Integration: Introduction of Cursor-on-Target message output, allowing sensors to seamlessly integrate into the major platforms such as ATAK (Android Team Awareness Kit)
- Increased Detection Speed: A 30% detection speed improvement. This means the time between initial detection scan and alerting is dramatically reduced.
- Improved AI-Model: The AI model has been trained specifically for weaker or obstructed signals, greatly increasing the detection range performance of all devices.
- Elevated Frequency Range: An additional frequency band is now fully operational, supporting a number of key protocol detectors specific to this band.
The updates will be rolling out across DroneShield devices globally in the next week, with heightened urgency given recent uptick in drone strikes in the Middle East and elsewhere. The technology upgrade is validated by deployments with the US Air Force and Australian Army.
“As we’ve seen in recent events, the use of drones and UAS escalates and increases destruction in situations of high tension- with no barrier of distance,” stated Oleg Vornik, DroneShield CEO. “Detection is even more vital than before.”
DroneShield capabilities are used to protect Military, Government, Law Enforcement, Critical Infrastructure, Commercial and VIPs throughout the world. Key products such as the DroneGun Tactical, RfPatrol, DroneGun MKIII, DroneSentry-X, RfOne MKII and software like DroneSentry-C2 are used to detect and eliminate unmanned threats.
