DroneShield Ltd has sold an undisclosed quantity of its RfOne MKII long-range sensors to the Australian Army to allow it to assess its future counter-drone requirements and options.
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.
The sale was structured as a one-off sale to the Australian Army, and, similar to the standard purchases from DroneShield’s other defence and law enforcement customers, comprises a small purchase of equipment.
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.
“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.
