DroneShield will leverage xReality's immersive technology to offer C-UAS training solutions for military markets.

DroneShield is teaming with Australia's xReality Group to provide extended reality (XR)-based counter--UAS training solutions, it was announced at I/ITSEC 2022.

XRG’s subsidiary Operator Tactical Solutions develops immersive planning, rehearsal and training packages for military and law enforcement markets, across local and international markets. Video released of a C-UAS training scenario by DroneShield showed use of a combination of VR headsets and DroneGun hardware, plus an instructor tablet device.  

DroneShield CEO Oleg Vornik commented: 'As the counter-drone industry continues to rapidly grow and develop, evidenced by significant use of small drones by both sides in the Ukraine war, there is an emergent need for counter-drone tactics and training packages for the system operators. As the global leader in the C-UAS sector, DroneShield is well placed to provide the training.'
