DroneShield, Thales enter agreement
DroneShield has entered into a teaming agreement with Thales to promote its products in the Spanish market.
Under the agreement, Thales Programas De Electronica Y Comunicaciones, a Spanish subsidiary of Thales, will utilise DroneShield’s products in its defence and security contract bids in Spain for programmes with counter-UAS requirements.
Oleg Vornik, chief executive officer, DroneShield, said: ‘Over the course of the recent year, we have made substantial progress with advancing our market penetration in NATO countries and in Spain in particular.
‘This partnership with Thales builds on the work we have undertaken and couples it with Thales’ extensive market penetration in Spain, as well as it long-established brand and reputation in this market, in order to achieve a multiplier effect on our and Thales’ counterdrone efforts.’
DroneShield develops multilayered UAS detection and disruption solutions to protect people, organisations and critical infrastructure from intrusion by UAS.
