High Definition, 360˚ Monitoring

DroneOpt is an exceptionally rugged, high definition PTZ camera for Electro-Optical (OR) verification. The camera is seemlessly integrated in DroneShield Complete that enables

  • Slew-to-cue on aerial target

  • Manual PTZ through native application

  • Multiple sources/types of evidence collection

  • Advanced imaging and precision positioning

Inbuilt image stabilisation works to dynamically detect vibration or movement and counteract this in both the horizontal and vertical axis, resulting in exceptional image clarity and high zoom levels.

DroneShield offers 2 PTZ camera models, DroneOpt1 and DroneOpt2. Each offers HD colour video with 30x optical zoom and full PTZ camera capabilities. DroneOpt2 offers simultaneous HD colour video and 640x480 IR thermal imaging, which can identify drones at 1km and 380m respectively.


  • Electro-Optical (OR) verification: Enables security teams to visually verify the existence of a drone up to 1km away

  • Robust Design: Designed for extreme environments and adverse weather conditions such as high winds, rain, fog, ice, and

    snow. (IP68 rated)

  • Easy to Use: Minimal technical training for remote operation through DroneShield Complete

  • Protected: Device and accessories supplied packed in rugged carry case
