The United States Air Force (USAF) has awarded DroneShield a contract to deploy multiple units of DroneShield’s DroneSentry integrated detect-and-defeat counterdrone (C-UAS) system at the Grand Forks Air Force airbase (in North Dakota, USA), protected by the 319th Security Forces Squadron of the USAF. As part of the contract, the USAF acquired an option to acquire additional systems following the initial deployment. This is DroneShield’s first US Air Force deployment.
DroneSentry systems to be deployed feature DroneShield’s passive RfOne radiofrequency direction finding sensors combined with the company’s DroneCannon fixed site electronic countermeasures systems. DroneSentry utilises DroneShieldComplete user interface, a tracking and reporting software. The system will receive regular firmware updates, including the company’s upcoming Artificial Intelligence-based firmware rollout planned for late 2020.
