DroneShield has today released an ASX announcement regarding the launch its DroneGun Tactical Product

DroneShield Ltd is pleased to announce the release of its DroneGun Tactical™ product, available for purchase from today to qualified end-users, where lawfull.

The release of DroneGun Tactical™ continues to establish DroneShield’s lead in the counterdrone space, following on the release of DroneGun MKII™ in late 2017.

The product was designed following comprehensive international military end-user trials, with a number of key features, including:

  • No backpack – the product is entirely self contained within the rifle body, whilst maintaining lightweight and long effective range (over 1km).
  • Addition of 433Mhz and 915Mhz frequencies, to ensure complete effectiveness across drone models.
  • Ergonomic body and controls.
  • Further alignment with standard military specifications, including standardised NATO military battery power.

DroneGun Tactical™ is not intended to supercede DroneGun MKII™. Rather, it is designed for users with a different set of requirements than those using DroneGun MKII™. The product summary, setting out more detail in relation to this new product is enclosed.

The Company continues to conduct ongoing Research & Development across its product portfolio, and in Q4 2017 received an Australian Government R&D Tax Incentive award of approximately $200,000, as set out in the 4C for the period.
