DroneShield Releases Video Of Anti-Drone Systems

DroneSentinel And DroneSentry Are Commercially Available Today

Australian public company DroneShield, which claims substantial U.S. operations, has release a video of its DroneSentinel / DroneSentry anti-drone systems in operation.

DroneSentry is an integrated automated drone detection and countermeasure product with an anti-swarming capability. DroneSentry provides its users with a multi-method drone detection capability and includes and integrates radar, radio frequency, acoustic, thermal and optical (with a range extender) sensor detection, i.e. all the key technologically viable detection methods that currently exist. These multiple detection methods are woven together using DroneShield's proprietary software and user interface, which provide for a low rate of false positives and a high probability of detection. For interception, DroneSentry integrates these layered detection methods with a radio-frequency jamming system (refer to the note at the end for the FCC disclaimer). This integrated detect-and-defeat functionality can be deployed either via a "man in the loop" function or in the automatic mode.

DroneSentinel is aimed at those customers who are unable to deploy jamming because of regulatory or operational restrictions. It contains DroneSentry's multi-sensor detection functionality, without the jamming capability.

The company says that DroneSentinel and DroneSentry are commercially available to customers today, and their production has commenced. To that end, the Company has recently conducted a heavily-attended and successful demonstration of DroneSentinel at its Virginia office. Present at the demonstration were a number of federal government and foreign governmental end-users, as well as several large prime defense contractors and financial investors.

Both DroneSentry and DroneSentinel are highly modular, the company says, and depending on the customer's requirements can include or exclude any of the radar, radio frequency, thermal camera, optical camera, acoustic, and optical range extender modules.

The summary of the modules contained in each DroneSentry and DroneSentinel product is set out below. This summary represents the base configuration of each product, with customers able to either upgrade to meet their specs, or downgrade to match their budget requirements.

"The Company originally started with an acoustic drone detection product. The market has evolved, and end-users are expressing substantial interest in integrated detect-and-defeat and multi-sensor detect products," said Peter James, DroneShield's chairman. "Sophisticated users' contracts will be won by those companies that are able to provide such multi-layered, multi-method products. Therefore, responding to customer demand, the Company has rolled out DroneSentry and DroneSentinel. Together with our portable drone jammer rifle DroneGun, this positions the Company to meet customer needs across the fixed site and mobile spectrum in the counterdrone space."
