'As the C-UAS market continues to rapidly grow, fuelled by use of drones in Ukraine and evolution of drone technology in warfare, DroneShield is seeing record demand for its solutions. We are pleased to be working with these leading government customers as they commence to build out their C-UAS capability.'

DroneGun Mk4 uses is a handheld RF effector which can disrupt a UA, causing a vertical controlled landing on the spot, or return it back to the operator or starting point. The RF disruption can also interfere with live video streaming, halting the collection of intelligence by the UAS.
