DroneShield Ltd, an Australian publicly listed manufacturer based in Sydney, has sold a quantity of its RFOne MKII long-range sensors to the Australian Army. The capability will be delivered immediately, allowing the Australian Army to assess its future counter-drone requirements and options.
“As an Australian company, DroneShield is immensely proud to support the Australian Army with its long-range counter-drone strategy,” Droneshield CEO Oleg Vornik said.
The deployment of these long-range sensors will highlight the flexibility, resilience and capabilities of DroneShield equipment in a dynamic field environment, while also assisting the Australian Army in establishing its counter drone requirements and future capability options.
The sale was structured as a one-off sale to the Australian Army, and, similar to the standard purchases from DroneShield’s other defence and law enforcement customers, comprises a small purchase of equipment.
While the size of the sale is financially immaterial, it is considered to be material from a growth perspective, as it is expected to lead to larger procurements once the equipment from the earlier purchase has been fielded for a period of time.
DroneShield specialises in RF sensing, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Sensor Fusion, Electronic Warfare, Rapid Prototyping and MIL-SPEC manufacturing.
The company’s capabilities are used to protect military, government, law enforcement, critical infrastructure, commercial and VIPs throughout the world.
