The ASX-listed company has launched a new training and simulation system, designed to enhance counter-UAS capability.
DroneShield has unveiled DroneSim — a lightweight and rapidly deployable UAS/drone simulator, built to mimic common drone signals in support of C-UAS testing and validation.
DroneSim, which can be used to generate signals across aerial (UAV), ground (UGV) and water surface (USV) environments, is designed for durability, leveraging a ruggedised hard case with MIL-SPEC connectors.
The device can be operated remotely to support system testing in challenging drone flight environments.
According to DroneShield, the simulation system was developed in response to demand for the offering from customers.
“We are excited to launch DroneSim as our entry in the important market for training and simulation systems,” DroneShield CEO Oleg Vornik said.
“As a global leader in the C-UAS space, DroneShield is well positioned to expand its solution ecosystem into this area.”
This latest announcement follows the delivery of DroneShield’s long-range sensor technology, RfOne MKII, to the Australian Army.
RfOne MKII is a radio frequency (RF) detection product, which leverages DroneShield’s proprietary detection database.
The system deploys multiple RfOne MKII sensors across different installations, enabling triangulation to accurately position a drone threat on a map.

The platform is primarily built for large sites requiring early detection and direction finding.
DroneShield also recently secured a new contract to deliver a drone defeat system to a critical infrastructure agency in the US.
The unnamed ‘high profile’ federal agency placed an initial order for a portable drone defeat system.
The order is expected to serve as a reference case for follow-on sales with the US agency and other potential customers.
