DroneShield, an Australian-American global leader in artificial intelligence-based platforms for protection against advanced threats such as drones and autonomous systems, today announced an enhancement to its artificial intelligence engine with the output of updated RF detection devices. Enhanced instruments include the RfPatrolTM, RfOneTM and DroneSentry-XTM drone detection and tracking platforms.
DroneShield’s capabilities are used to protect military, government, law enforcement, critical infrastructure, businesses and VIPs worldwide. Key products such as the DroneGun TacticalTM, RfPatrolTM, DroneGun MKIIITM, DroneSentry-XTM, RfOne MKIITM and software like DroneSentry-C2TM are used to detect and eliminate unmanned threats.
The main aspects of the firmware update are:
Seamless Integration: Introduced Cursor-on-Target message output, allowing sensors to seamlessly integrate into major platforms such as ATAK (Android Team Awareness Kit). Increased Detection Speed: A 30% improvement in detection speed. This means that the time between the initial detection analysis and the alert is greatly reduced. Improved AI Model: The AI model has been trained specifically for weaker or obstructed signals, dramatically increasing the detection range performance of all devices.
High Frequency Range: An additional frequency band is now fully operational, supporting a number of key protocol detectors specific to this band.
“As we have seen in recent events, the use of drones and UAS is escalating and increasing the destruction in high tension situations – without a distance barrier,” said Oleg Vornik, CEO of DroneShield. “Detection is even more vital than before.”
The updates will be rolling out to DroneShield devices globally over the next week, with added urgency given the recent surge in drone strikes in the Middle East and elsewhere. The technology upgrade is validated by deployments with the US Air Force and the Australian Army.
