The agreement was signed in May 2020, following a Belgium Police-led procurement process.  

Oleg Vornik, DroneShield’s CEO, said delivery was disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Due to COVID, there have been initial delays in mobilisation of orders under the agreement, which have now commenced despite continuous COVID constraints in Europe,” Vornik said.

Vornik said this initial order is expected to be the first of many deliveries to the EU. 

“While this initial purchase is small at approximately $100,000, it represents the first purchase under what we expect to be a multimillion-dollar agreement supplying DroneGuns and associated counter-UAS products across dismounted, vehicle and fixed site range, to police forces across EU," he added.

About the DroneGun Tactical

The DroneGun Tactical is a UAS countermeasure, designed for two hand operation and long-range defeat.

The product includes directional antennas in a lightweight rifle-style design; featuring an intuitive control panel user interface to select and engage the range of jamming frequencies for target defeat.

According to DroneShield, the asset causes the UAS to respond via vertical on the spot landing or return to its remote controller or starting point.
