DroneShield Releases Ground-breaking Modular Multi-Method Drone Detection System

DroneShield Ltd, an Australian public company with substantial U.S. operations, has released a video of its ground-breaking DroneSentinel / DroneSentry anti-drone systems in operation.

DroneSentry is an integrated automated drone detection and counter-measure product with an anti-swarming capability. DroneSentry provides its users with 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 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.

The DroneSentry and DroneSentinel products can be customized based on a users requirement/budget. They decide which modules they want to add or remove.

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. Unlike many of the existing anti-drone products globally, DroneSentinel and DroneSentry are commercially available to customers in many countries, and their production has commenced. 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 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.

DroneSentry has not been commercially authorized as required by the federal communications commission ("FCC"). As a result, this device is not, and may not be, offered for sale or lease, or sold or leased, in the United States, other than to the United States government and its agencies, until such authorization is obtained. The use of DroneSentry in the United States by other persons or entities, including state or local government agencies, is prohibited by federal law.

Laws limiting the availability of DroneSentry to certain types of users may apply in other jurisdictions, and any sales will be conducted only in compliance with the applicable laws. Jammer affects only frequencies at 2.4 GHz, 5.8GHz and GPS/Glonass (optionally). Emergency broadcasts, cellphone communication and other dedicated channels will not be affected.
