DroneShield Ltd recently announced that the U.S. Department of Defense Asymmetric Warfare Group at Fort A.P. Hill in Virginia has carried out an evaluation of 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 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 counterdrone space, as those and numerous other global end-users continue to seek counterdrone solutions to combat the rapidly escalating and constantly evolving drone threat.”
