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.
