DroneShield CompassOne positioning solution

DroneShield has released CompassOne, a next-generation self-contained navigation solution designed for both fixed sites and moving vehicle applications. Providing real-time military-grade location, orientation and direction sensing, the device is ideal for counter-UAS (unmanned aerial systems) solutions as well as unmanned systems such as UAVs and UGVs (unmanned ground vehicles).

The rugged and durable CompassOne is suitable for installation and operation in harsh environments. Military-grade connectors and high-end stainless-steel hardware ensure uninterrupted connection and protection from the elements, while the aluminium underside provides exceptional impact resistance and rigidity while keeping overall weight low.

CompassOne can be used as a standalone solution, and can also be seamlessly integrated with DroneShield’s DroneSentry system. Power over Ethernet reduces cable clutter and VESA compatibility makes CompassOne easy to integrate into new or existing systems. Installation is clear and fast with status LEDs, installation graphics and tool-less fasteners.

Oleg Vornik, CEO of DroneShield, commented, “CompassOne, with its ruggedness and incorporation of advanced technologies, integrates seamlessly within DroneShield’s product ecosystem, and equally with third-party systems as a stand-alone product. Its accurate navigation is substantially superior to other systems on the market globally.”
