DroneGun Tactical counter-UAS system

DroneShield has announced the release of its DroneGun Tactical portable counter-UAS (unmanned aerial system) product. The DroneGun Tactical is not intended to supercede DroneShield’s previous product, the DroneGun MKII, but has been designed for users with a different set of requirements.

The product was designed following comprehensive international military end-user trials, with a number of key features, including:

  • No backpack – the product is entirely self contained within the rifle body, whilst maintaining light weight and long effective range (over 1km)
  • Addition of 433Mhz and 915Mhz frequencies to 2.4GHz ISM, 5.8GHz ISM and GNSS L2, ensuring complete effectiveness across drone models
  • Ergonomic body and controls
  • Further alignment with standard military specifications, including standardised NATO military battery power
