The DroneSentry-X supports passive detection, identification, and tracking of multiple unmanned or uncrewed systems. The new system integrates DroneShield’s advanced multi-mission AI/ML technology, RFAI, for passive, non-intrusive detection with its new electronic countermeasure technology, RFAI-ATK, which provides operators with the ability to detect, identify, track, and defeat unmanned threats from a single integrated system.

After an extensive development process including input from multiple clients and extensive end-user feedback, the system includes an on-board RFAI user interface for local and tactical applications, while still supporting Modular Open Systems Approach best practices for interoperability with other sensors, effectors, and command and control packages. DroneSentry-X uses a web-based UI interface designed to show real-time analytics of detected drone activity, and is also compatible with DroneShield’s DroneLocater technology, that can provide data on drone and controller coordinates, altitude and velocity.

DroneShield’s new product release comes after a new $33-million deal was announced with an unspecified U.S. Government department, as well as a $9.9-million order from an unspecified 5 Eyes client, showing the increasing value of effective counter-UAV solutions to authorities worldwide. DroneSentry-X makes its debut this week at the Association of the United States Army Annual Meeting and Exposition (AUSA 2023) in Washington, DC. Initial deliveries under received orders will commence this month.
