DroneShield announced that it has commenced expansion into the Brazilian market. As part of the entrance into the Brazilian market, DroneShield has received formal approval from Anatel, the Brazilian National Telecommunications Agency responsible for issuing the concession of new radio frequencies. Following the approval earlier this month, the company has now sold a quantity of its DroneGun Tactical units to the Brazilian government.
Oleg Vornik, DroneShield CEO, commented, “Brazil is a large and sophisticated market for military and security equipment, and we are pleased to commence active presence in the country, deploying equipment to the customers. We look forward growing our presence in Brazil with the urgent counter-drone requirements mirroring what we are seeing in other countries.”
The DroneGun Tactical unit is a highly effective UAS countermeasure designed for two-hand operation and long-range defeat. The product includes high performance directional antennas in a lightweight robust rifle style design; featuring an intuitive control panel user interface to select and engage the range of jamming frequencies for target defeat. The DroneGun Tactical provides a safe countermeasure against a wide range of UAS threats (e.g. drones), with no damage to common UAS models or surrounding environment.
When disruption is triggered, UAS targets (e.g. drone) will respond via vertical on the spot landing or return to its remote controller or starting point. DroneShield’s C-UAS defeat capabilities do not involve protocol manipulation or “cyber” tactics, given the limitations of those methods. Our defeat technologies offer non-kinetic jamming for the controlled management of threats.
