DroneShield Restricted, a world chief in synthetic intelligence options for superior unmanned threats, and Teledyne FLIR, a world chief in clever sensing options for protection and industrial functions, a part of Teledyne Applied sciences Included, have introduced a collaboration to supply a joint sensing and mitigation resolution for unmanned aerial threats. The mixed sensor providing has secured an preliminary marquee buyer, a serious Western navy company, which will likely be deploying the mixed system at one of many best-known navy testing ranges on this planet. The contract worth is confidential, and is anticipated to be absolutely acquired by DroneShield prior to finish of the June 2022 quarter.

“The unequalled Teledyne FLIR thermal imaging {hardware} and analytics for counter UAS, together with DroneShield’s RF sensors and distinctive AI software program algorithms, present a differentiated and substantial value-add to allied defence departments,” mentioned Kai Moncino, Director of World Enterprise Growth – Options, Teledyne FLIR. “Teledyne FLIR is thrilled to work carefully with DroneShield to safe our first marquee proof-of-concept DoD buyer on the iconic deployment location, and we stay up for increasing on our collaboration with DroneShield globally.”


Oleg Vornik, DroneShield CEO, commented, “With the flexibility to detect, establish, and monitor threats within the thermal and RF spectrums through highly effective synthetic intelligence algorithms, DroneShield and Teledyne FLIR supply a singular and differentiated functionality, poised to enhance a considerable variety of multi-sensor C-UAS methods globally. We’re thrilled to enter this collaboration. We’re already working collectively on a number of tier-one international alternatives, together with having collectively secured the preliminary marquee DoD buyer for our mixed providing, which contains our radiofrequency sensors and DroneSentry-C2 command-and-control system. The joint system’s functionality, plus the mix of Teledyne FLIR and DroneShield channels to market, strongly positions the mixed system for a meaningful-scale rollout with 5 Eyes companions and authorised allies globally.”

As a part of the collaboration, Teledyne FLIR is extending its counter-UAS thermal imaging sensing expertise to the DroneShield platform, which has developed and utilized its highly effective AI and machine studying software program algorithms through radiofrequency (RF) sensing and pc imaginative and prescient applied sciences. The addition of Teledyne FLIR thermal digicam {hardware} and experience will allow navy clients to enhance detection, together with figuring out and monitoring quite a few unmanned threats within the thermal and RF spectrums at appreciable vary, offering a singular and ground-breaking functionality supplied inside a single system.
