DroneSentry stands guard for USAF

23rd July 2020 - 14:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


A USAF base in North Dakota will receive multiple units of the DroneSentry system (pictured) from DroneShield to detect and defeat hostile UAVs.

The value of the deal was undisclosed.

The 319th Security Forces Squadron will deploy the equipment at Grand Forks AFB, and the contract includes the option for the USAF to procure more systems.

Systems to be deployed at Grand Forks include passive RfOne RF direction finding sensors capable of detecting small Class 1 drones, plus DroneCannon fixed ECM units.

This is the first order from the USAF for DroneShield technology, but the company noted that there is a ‘substantial requirement’ for equipment to protect airbases, in the US and overseas.

DroneSentry utilises the DroneShieldComplete user interface, which will be updated later this year with AI-based  firmware.
