Australian drone countermeasure manufacturer DroneShield has received US Department of Defence funding to further develop its DroneShieldComplete command and control system. The work will take place over several months and the company expects it to lead to multiple purchase orders.
In a separate contract, DroneShield has also received an order to supply its DroneSentry system to a military customer in south east Asia “allied with the west”. The south east Asian nation has ordered a complete DroneSentry solution involving RF direction finding sensors and radar systems, DroneCannon electronic warfare modules and a command and communications system. The initial order is valued at around $1 million. The company says as it is a full capability initial order, it is expected to lead to additional multi-million dollar sales following its deployment.
DroneShield CEO Oleg Vornik said: “There is now a clear momentum in customer adoption of our products. We are now starting to see our extensive pipeline converting into end use orders.”
DroneShield makes a range of drone detection and electronic drone countermeasure devices to tackle the issue of drone intrusion into restricted airspace.
