Australian counter-drone systems developer DroneShield announced it has completed the delivery of its DroneGun systems to a Middle Eastern customer.

The company did not reveal to which country the systems were delivered, revealing only that the contract was initially awarded in June 2018.

“Middle Eastern customer order flow processes are often less structured than those involving their Western counterparts, however DroneShield has a close relationship with this governmental customer and has received multiple payments from this governmental customer before,” Oleg Vornik, DroneShield’s CEO, commented.

“DroneShield’s supply chain and manufacturing capabilities have remained intact through the current global crisis, and in fact have ramped up, following the opening of a new manufacturing facility in western Sydney earlier this quarter, the CEO added.

The DroneGun systems that were delivered provide a countermeasure against a range of drone models. They can engage their targets at a range of up to 2km and benefit from a portable design. The systems can disrupt multiple RF frequency bands simultaneously (433MHz, 915MHz, 2.4GHz & 5.8GHz) and have the ability to immediately cease video transmission back to the drone operator, according to the company.
