Teledyne FLIR has added a new UAS type to its product line.
Vehicle-mounted DroneSentry-X released
DroneShield has released a vehicle-mounted version of its drone detection and defeat solution called DroneSentry-X.
The compact, 10kg system can be mounted on most vehicles for use across military, law enforcement, security and VIP applications.
The 360° detect and defeat device is suitable for mobile operations with roof mounted sensors that can be automatically or manually activated to disrupt drone activity. It offers users real-time situational awareness while moving, with the ability to automatically counter drone threats detected by the system. The device can alternatively be deployed at a fixed site or as a temporary pop-up solution, with on site or remote operator access.
With a nominal UAS detection range of greater than 2km (1.2 miles) and a disruption range greater than 300m, the system detects drones operating on consumer and commercial ISM frequencies.
DroneSentry-X includes digital control panel and display mount for operator access.
Oleg Vornik, CEO, DroneShield, said: ‘Vehicle market for counter-drone protection is rapidly rising. In addition to catering for that segment, DroneSentry-X provides a more affordable detect-and-defeat solution for price-sensitive customers as an alternative to purchasing full-functionality DroneSentry product from us. DroneShield offers a complete suite of detection and defeat solutions to our customers, and this new product covers the customer need which we identified in our recent engagements.’
