ASX-listed DroneShield announced the release of its DroneSentry-X Mk2 (DroneSentry-X), a new C-UAS solution designed for both mobile and expeditionary fixed-site applications, offering comprehensive support for passive detection, identification, and tracking of multi-domain unmanned systems.

In a media release, DroneShield said the new solution combines its cutting-edge multi-mission AI/ML technology, known as RFAI, for passive and non-intrusive detection, with its latest electronic countermeasure (ECM) technology, RFAIATK (RFAI “Attack”). 

This integration empowers operators with a single self-contained system capable of detecting, identifying, tracking, and defeating (DITD) unmanned systems, setting new industry standards.

According to the company, a notable feature of DroneSentry-X is its introduction of RFAI-ATK, making it the first platform in the C-UAS industry to offer this advanced capability. 

Its development involved extensive research and development with valuable input from end-users, ensuring it met the critical requirements for performance, user interface, and interoperability.

DroneShield also said the system’s design focuses on interoperability and user-friendliness. It includes an embedded RFAI user interface for local and tactical-level situational awareness while adhering to Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA) best practices. 

This enables seamless integration with existing system-of-systems configurations and third-party sensors, effectors, and command and control (C2) platforms.

DroneSentry-X Mk2 is set to debut at the Association of the United States Army Annual Meeting and Exposition (AUSA 2023) in Washington, DC. 

Initial deliveries to fulfil existing orders are scheduled to commence this month.

Founded in 2014, DroneShield provides adaptable solutions that range from extensive Counter-Unmanned Aerial System (C-UAS) offerings to optimising the efficiency of existing third-party sensor systems in use.

The ASX-listed company said it delivers essential mission capabilities through its sensor fusion and signal processing technology, which is based on Artificial Intelligence.
