DroneShield Ltd (ASX:DRO) (“DroneShield" or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the release of its DroneGun Tactical™ product, available for purchase from today to qualified end-users, where lawful.
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 light weight 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.
