DroneShield has announced the release of DroneSentry-X, the company’s new vehicle-mounted counter-UAS (unmanned aerial system) product. Compatible with a range of vehicles as well as fixed-site installations, and featuring automated 360° detect and defeat capabilities for anti-drone swarm protection, the system is aimed at military, law enforcement, security and VIP protection markets.
The lightweight, compact system features a digital control panel and display, and roof-mounted sensors that can be automatically or manually activated to intercept rogue drones. DroneSentry-X provides real-time situational awareness while moving, with the ability to automatically counter drone threats detected by the system. The device can also be deployed at a fixed site or as a temporary pop-up solution, with on-site or remote operator access.

Oleg Vornik, CEO of DroneShield, commented: “The vehicle market for counter-drone protection is rapidly rising.

DroneShield offers a complete suite of detection and defeat solutions to our customers, and this new product covers the customer need which we identified in our recent engagements.”
