DroneShield launches area-specific satellite denial systems
DroneShield Ltd. has announced that it has launched an initial order from a defense customer for its target area-specific Satellite Denial Systems. Global Navigation Systems (GNSS) are used around the world, while the most well-known are the American GPS, the Russian GLONASS, the European Galileo, and the Chinese BeiDou systems.
DroneShield has used GNSS denial against drones and UAVs for a number of years as part of the smart defeat capability within its products. The company has developed a number of unique techniques during that time and has a growing reputation as experts in this domain. DroneShield systems work on focusing the disruption on a specific targeted area.
A Five Eyes government has requested that DroneShield develop this capability a step further through a paid R&D project. This project is expected to follow up with a series of further projects, each project including more advanced development of the system. The dollar value is not material for the initial project, but it is an area of expansion that is likely to become material in the next 24 months.
