Sydney-based anti-drone security company, DroneShield (ASX: DRO), has won regulatory approval to fulfil an export order to a Central American customer.
The company announced in a statement that approval would allow it to go ahead and fulfil a $300,000 order for its DroneGun Tactical jammer products.
Oleg Vornik, DroneShield’s CEO, commented: “Drone misuse is a universal problem, and no government or corporate civil infrastructure operator is immune from it.
“Inaction is not an option, and the recent events at Gatwick Airport…have brought this home to decision-makers around the world”.
The Central American order comes after a series of successes for the company, including various innovation and export awards, and its largest order to date – a $3.2 million order for 70 DroneGuns from a Middle Eastern customer.
DroneShield offers a range of drone detection, monitoring and anti-drone countermeasure systems.
Because of the sensitivity of some of its technology to the United States and its allies, US regulatory approval was needed for the order.
