DroneShield has sold a quantity of its RfOne MKIITM long-range sensors to the Australian Army.
The capability is being delivered immediately to allow the Australian Army to assess its future counter-drone requirements and options.
The RfOne MKII is a long range direction finder that, according to the company, detects and tracks small drones and other robotic threats at longer distances than any other device.
It runs on the DroneSentry-C2 AI-based software engine, which scans the RF spectrum and reports threats to the operator without causing undue distraction from other tasks.
The purpose of RfOne MKIITM is to off-set the ability of low-value drones to provide targeting data on high value armoured vehicles and other assets, and if paired with DroneSentry-X, can also neutralise those drones.
RfOne variants are in use with the US Air Force for airbase protection.
“DroneShield is immensely proud to support the Australian Army with its long-range counter-drone strategy," Oleg Vornik, DroneShield CEO, said.
