Droneshield has today released an ASX announcement with regards to its evaluation by the United States Department of Defense. The announcement is as follows:
DroneShield Ltd (ASX:DRO or DRO.AU) (“DroneShield” or the “Company”) is pleased to advise the market that the U.S. Department of Defense Asymmetric Warfare Group at Fort A.P. Hill, Virginia has evaluated DroneShield’s products DroneSentry™ and DroneGun Tactical™ at an event facilitated by the Army Night Vision Electronic Sensors Directorate (NVESD) Unique Mission Cell (UMC). DroneShield’s successful deployment at that event included:
• participation in seven experimental scenarios,
• detection and tracking of multiple UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) via combined radiofrequency (RF) and radar detection of DroneShield’s DroneSentry™ platform;
• provision of real-time battlefield intelligence of mock-threat drones to fielded experimental participants through TAK/ATAK integration (ATAK, or Android Tactical Assault Kit, is a major software platform used by the U.S. military); and
• enabling the “Blue Force” (friendly forces) command to negate mock-threat drones through the use of our DroneGun Tactical™ and DroneCannon™ systems
This follows DroneShield’s recent successful participation in the Autonomous Warrior 2018 exercise with the UK military, using its DroneSentinel™ platform.
Oleg Vornik, DroneShield’s CEO, commented: “The U.S. and UK military trials continue to cement DroneShield’s leadership in the counter drone space, as those and numerous other global end-users continue to seek counter drone solutions to combat the rapidly escalating and constantly evolving drone threat.”
