DroneShield to collaborate with Department of Homeland Security

The ASX-listed company’s UAS detection and mitigation capabilities have been selected by the US Department of Homeland Security for an R&D project.

The ASX-listed company’s UAS detection and mitigation capabilities have been selected by the US Department of Homeland Security for an R&D project.

DroneShield has entered into a new Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the US Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate (DHS S&T).

The research is expected to involve DroneShield’s multi-sensor unmanned aerial system (UAS) detection and mitigation capabilities, primarily focusing on the fixed and semi-fixed site applications of the firm’s DroneSentry and DroneSentry-C2 products.

DroneSentry is a modular system, which integrates multiple sensors – radiofrequency (RF), radar, EO/IR camera, and acoustic for layered detection, classification, identification, and tracking of UAS.

The product leverages AI technology-based RF detection, long-range sensing, and expanded multi-sensor data fusion capabilities.

DroneSentry-C2 is designed to provide end users with an interoperable common operating picture for counter-UAS missions by pairing sensor fusion with an enterprise-level visual platform.

This, according to DroneShield, enables users to deploy a complete detection and threat assessment capability of unmanned systems for their critical infrastructure and base protection requirements.

“We are excited to work closely with DHS S&T under this co-operative agreement to support end users throughout their agency and sub-agency partners,” DroneShield CEO Oleg Vornik commented.

“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.” 

This announcement follows the rollout of DroneSentry-C2’s US Military Standard (MIL-STD) compliant version of the software platform.

DroneSentry also recently supported the US Army Defense in Depth Exercise (DiDEX), along with DroneShield’s dismounted and mounted C-sUAS offering.
