DroneShield has launched its Expeditionary Fixed-Site (EFS) Kit for the DroneSentry-X Mk2, a multi-mission Counter-UxS solution providing AI driven detection, identification and next generation electronic defeat capabilities engineered for mobile and expeditionary use cases.

DroneShield’s EFS Kit enables rapid deployment of the DroneSentry-X Mk2 across a wide range of operations, setting a new standard for ease of use among tactical end users.

Key Features of the DroneSentry-X Mk2 Expeditionary Fixed-Site (EFS) Kit: 

AI-Powered Threat Detection: Leveraging advanced artificial intelligence, DroneSentry-X Mk2 excels in detecting and identifying multi-domain UxS threats with unparalleled accuracy, providing operators with crucial intelligence in real-time.

Expeditionary Fixed Site (EFS) Kit: The EFS Kit ensures the adaptability of the DroneSentry-X Mk2 for fixed-site or semi-permanent wide area operations. The EFS Kit was designed with operator feedback for an intuitive deployment, making it easy to set-up and versatile, streamlining a variety of scenarios including mobile or on-the-move, at the halt, reconnaissance, force protection and base defense operations.

Tool-Less Mount and Installation: The EFS Kit features a tool-less mount and installation, allowing for swift deployment as well as quick disassembly without the need for intricate tools or specialized training. Tactical operators can set up and disassemble the system efficiently in less than 10 minutes, enhancing response times to emerging threats as well as allowing for expedited disassembly if and when the mission changes.

Portable Battery Solution: The EFS Kit includes a portable battery solution ensuring uninterrupted operation in remote or temporary settings. This feature enhances the system’s mobility, increases deployment options and reduces dependency on fixed power sources.

Benefits for Operators

  • Real-Time Threat Intelligence: The integration of AI ensures that operators receive real-time intelligence, enabling rapid decision-making and response to UxS threats.
  • Adaptability for Wide Area Operations: The EFS Kit transforms the DroneSentry-X into a best in class integrated sensor and effector solution for wide area operations, allowing it to be easily deployed in various environments.
  • Efficient and Flexible Deployment: The tool-less mount and installation system streamline the deployment process, minimizing downtime and maximizing the system’s availability for mission-critical tasks.

The DroneSentry-X Mk2 made its debut in October at the Association of the United States Army Annual Meeting and Exposition (AUSA 2023) in Washington, DC. After several months of customer feedback, the EFS now expands the deployment options of DroneSentry-X to allow users to deploy the leading integrated C-UAS solution effectively anywhere.

Matt McCrann, DroneShield U.S. CEO, commented; “The DroneSentry-X EFS Kit addresses a huge gap for operators – combining an adaptable Counter-UxS capability with user-friendly features. Our commitment to ease of use is evident in every aspect of the DroneSentry-X EFS, from advanced AI detection to the truly easy to deploy configuration.”

Angus Bean, DroneShield Chief Technology Officer, added; “We are focused on rapid product development this includes both new technologies and solution refinement based on end user mission sets. We want to execute on the complete solution, considering sequence of operation, deployment life cycle and ongoing support.”
