Australian Army Acquire Counter-Drone Sensors

The deployment of DroneShield’s long-range sensors will assist the Australian Army in establishing its counter-drone requirements and future capability options By DA Reporter / 29 Jul 2021

DroneShield Ltd has sold an undisclosed number of its RfOne MKII long-range drone detection sensors to the Australian Army to enable it to assess its future counter-drone requirements and options. 

DroneShield did not disclose the quantity details nor the order value. The one-off sale also comprises a small purchase of equipment similar to earlier standard purchases with other customers. 

While the size of the sale is financially immaterial, it is considered to be material from a growth perspective as it is expected to lead to larger procurements, once the equipment from the earlier purchase has been fielded for a period of time.

RfOne MKII is a Radio Frequency (RF) detection product that can be used in several applications. Each unit delivers 90° coverage, so deploying multiple RfOne MKII sensors across various installations will enable triangulation to accurately position a drone threat.

“As an Australian company, DroneShield is immensely proud to support the Australian Army with its long-range counter-drone strategy,” said Oleg Vornik, DroneShield CEO.
