DroneShield system ordered to protect VIP convoys


Drone detection and countermeasure manufacturer DroneShield has received an order of $4.7 million from a new non-government Swiss international customer to provide multiple vehicle-based counterdrone (C-UxS) systems.

The vehicle-based solution offers a C-UxS platform that can be operated in both static and On-The-Move (OTM) missions for convoy and mobile VIP protection, according to the company.

The end customer is a high-profile government agency which the company did not name.

DroneShield CEO Oleg Vornik said: “This order highlights DroneShield expertise not only as a maker of cutting-edge AI-based C-UAS sensor and effector technologies, but also a system integrator, for demanding applications that involve multiple sensor and effector modalities, operating in tough conditions.

“We are excited to have this new customer onboard and doing more work with them over coming years.”

Payments are expected to be received by the company throughout 2024, with the final payment expected in Q1, 2025.

The solution provides operational flexibility by incorporating DroneShield’s radio frequency detection and mitigation, radar, and electro-optical sensors, into a single vehicle-based platform.

The system will be powered by the DroneSentry-C2 command-and-control system, including its proprietary AI-based SensorFusion engine.
