DroneShield looks to Europe with NATO procurement


Drone detection and countermeasure manufacturer DroneShield can look forward to greater opportunities selling to European militaries following an approval from the NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA).

The approval awarded via COBBS BELUX BV, DroneShield’s in-country Belgium and Luxembourg partner, is the first Counter-small UAS procurement framework agreement in NATO history.

The initial agreement is for 3 years, with extension options, with DroneShield expecting a ‘significant’ total in sales under the framework.

DroneShield CEO Oleg Vornik said: “The importance of being awarded this first framework agreement, which is a distinctive feature of NSPA, is one of the most strategically noteworthy agreements since the company was founded.

“DroneShield is well positioned for the potential order volume with the new production facilities and production ramp-up announced earlier this year.”

DroneShield has rapidly expanded its supply chain through its Adelaide manufacturing partner and itself moved into a larger Sydney facility.

Also, as a result of being on the NSPA framework, additional end-users are likely to place orders with DroneShield.

NSPA is NATO’s lead organisation for multinational acquisition, support, and sustainment in all domains.
