US Department of Defense to fund DroneShield for development of its command and control system

DroneShield Ltd recently announced that it has received funding from the United States Department of Defense (DoD) for targeted development of its DroneShieldComplete Command-and-Control (C2) system. The section of the DoD, which has awarded the contract, is a new customer for DroneShied. The funding was awarded through a sole source contract.

DroneShieldComplete is an intuitive and feature rich C2, providing real time alerting, tracking and reporting information for native DroneShield as well as third party sensors.

The DoD is working with DroneShield, providing funding for an agreed list of feature enhancements, for a project expected to span over several months. Importantly, following that period, the DoD is expected to make multiple purchases of DroneShield’s C-UAS equipment, which would run on the enhanced DroneShieldComplete C2.

As mentioned in the press release, Oleg Vornik, DroneShield’s CEO, commented that they are proud to be working with the United States Department of Defense, one of most demanding defense customers globally, on this project to ensure their DroneShieldComplete C2 stays at the cutting edge of customer requirements.

Further, this project underscores their leadership not only as a product/sensor manufacturer, but also as an integrator of fixed site and mobile C-UAS systems. This contract is a material milestone in cementing their close working relationship with the largest defense customer globally.

The company is unable to precisely quantify the follow up orders currently, but it expects the orders to be material and will in due course provide an update on the dollar amounts to the market.
