DroneShield Ltd (ASX: DRO or DRO.AU) (the “Company” or “DroneShield”), a publicly-traded leader in the emerging industry of drone security solutions, has announced that its products were utilised by the Australian Defence Force for the protection of the ASEAN-Australia Special Summit 2018 in Sydney.
The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) is the premier regional grouping in Southeast Asia. The heads of the ten ASEAN states and the Australian delegation including Prime Minister Turnbull met in Sydney, the first time such a meeting was held in Australia.
Monitoring of drone activity at high profile events has become an important component of event management, similar to perimeter access control or participant credentialing. DroneShield’s product DroneGun was used by the Australian Defence Force at the event, on behalf of the New South Wales Police for the protection of the participants from potential drone threats.
Oleg Vornik, DroneShield’s Managing Director and CEO, commented, “We are proud to be able to assist a high-profile event like this. The selection of DroneShield to assist with the aerial protection of the ASEAN-Australia event is a testament to the quality and capability of our product suite.”
