Zain Drone, DroneShield team up
Zain Group has signed an agreement with DroneShield to offer counter-UAS solutions across the Middle East.
In October 2018, Zain Group established its Zain Drone entity to provide drone-as-a-service to governments and enterprises in Kuwait, with plans to extend its UAS services gradually across the region.
Zain Drone is offering DroneShield’s security solutions to provide civil infrastructure operators, airports, governmental bodies and security agencies with the ability to identify and passively monitor unauthorised UAS that threaten safety, security and privacy. This is achieved by using a combination of multi-sensor detection technologies, an enterprise-grade network, real-time alerts and the collection of digital evidence.
Bader Al Kharafi, vice chairman and group CEO, Zain, said: ‘We are fielding increasing demand from our customers for comprehensive solutions in this space, and DroneShield’s product range, coupled with our telecommunications expertise, provides exactly what our customers are looking for. Consequently, after an extensive review of the counterdrone market, we opted to enter into a teaming agreement with DroneShield.’
