Droneshield accepts US Department of Homeland Security agreement
DroneShield Ltd (ASX:DRO) has entered into a new Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate (DHS S&T). The research will involve DroneShield’s multi-sensor Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) detection and mitigation capabilities, with the primary focus on DroneSentry™ and DroneSentry-C2™ solutions for fixed and semi-fixed site applications.
DroneSentry™ is a modular system that integrates multiple sensors – radiofrequency (RF), radar, EO/IR camera, and acoustic for layered detection, classification, identification, and tracking of UAS. DroneSentry™ leverages DroneShield’s latest advancements in Artificial Intelligence (AI) based RF detection, long-range sensing, and expanded multi-sensor data fusion capabilities.
DroneSentry-C2™ provides end users with an interoperable common operating picture for the counter-UAS mission. DroneSentry-C2™’s pairing of advanced sensor fusion with an intuitive enterprise level visual platform, enables users to easily deploy a complete detection and threat assessment capability of unmanned systems for their critical infrastructure and base protection needs.
Oleg Vornik, DroneShield’s CEO, commented, “We are excited to work closely with DHS S&T under this cooperative agreement to support end users throughout their agency and sub-agency partners. Our DroneSentry solution is at the forefront of fixed-site counter-UAS and partnerships like this one allow us to make further advancements that are most relevant to the end users and mission we serve.”
In addition to its cooperative agreement with DHS, DroneShield recently announced DroneSentry-C2’s U.S. Military Standard (“MIL-STD”) compliant version of the software platform. DroneSentry also supported the recent U.S. Army Defense in Depth Exercise (DiDEX), along with DroneShield’s dismounted and mounted C-sUAS solutions.
