DroneShield RFZero drone detection system

DroneShield has announced the launch of RfZero, an omnidirectional UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) detection device with a 1km range, following extensive development in response to end-user feedback. RfZero is designed to be a cost-effective fixed site alternative to DroneShield’s higher end product, RfOne (a 5km radio frequency direction finder).

As is the case with the rest of DroneShield’s fixed site product family, RfZero uses DroneShieldComplete, DroneShield’s proprietary counterdrone software user interface. It is also able to integrate with the rest of the fixed site DroneShield product suite, such as DroneCannon for either automated or manual drone defeat, once RfZero detects the drone.

RfZero is completely non-emitting, thus featuring less regulatory constraints. DroneShield’s CEO Oleg Vornik commented: “RfZero is expected to appeal to a wide range of users looking for a more cost effective fixed site solution, complementing our RfOne high performance product. Typical target customers for RfZero include prisons, VIPs, commercial sites, mining industry, events, and qualified corporate users, while airport and military customers generally find RfOne to be the more suitable offering. Following the recent releases of the pistol-shaped drone mitigation device DroneGun MKIII and the body-worn RfPatrol detection device, DroneShield is pleased to have the most extensive product offering on the market, developed based on the extensive customer feedback we received to date.”
