Drone detection and counter-drone technology developer DroneShield has rolled out its first fully machine learning/artificial intelligence based drone detection and classification software.
The new AI based signal processing technologies will be rolled out for all new and existing customer systems to better detect unmanned robotic systems and threats in the electronic warfare fields.
The software is designed to run on low power field-programable gate array (FPGA) hardware deployed in the company’s RfPatrol, DroneSentry and DroneSentry-X products.
According to the company: “The result is a dramatic increase in detection responsiveness, lower false positives and a significant increase in the speed at which new threats are detected, classified and tracked by DroneShield systems.”
CEO Oleg Vornik said future device software updates would build on the new system architecture and further increase performance.
“DroneShield customers receive regular software updates via enrolling into a subscription as a service (SAAS) model at the time of purchase.”
Vorkik said the technology could also be deployed outside the counter-drone market, with the company in discussion with military customers in the Five Eyes group of nations including Australia which share intelligence.
