Artificial intelligence (Ai)-based platform development company DroneShield (ASX:DRO) has released its breakthrough new product, DroneGun Mk4, following an ‘extensive’ development in response to end-user feedback.
DroneShield reports the product is available for purchase from today (4 April 2023) to qualified end-users, where lawful.
The product represents a portable pistol-shape drone jammer, weighing only 3.2kg, and is believed by DroneShield to be peerless globally for its combination of size and effectiveness.
“This product features break-through technologies such as advanced waveforms to offer unparallel performance for its size and weight”
Additionally, the product is designed as an addition to the DroneGun product line, rather than replacing the highly successful long range DroneGun Tactical, and ultra-lightweight DroneGun MK3 providing an optimal balance between size and capability.
The company also notes the DroneGun Mk4 can also be used in combination with other DroneShield products, including its RfPatrol body-worn detection device and the DroneSentry stationary multi-sensor detection system.
Speaking on its new release, DroneShield Chief Technology Officer Angus Bean said: “DroneGun is an iconic DroneShield brand of products, from the original first-generation unit released in late 2016, to this latest offering. The product line has a deep heritage globally including U.S. DoD and all main western militaries, intelligence community globally and law enforcement customers. This product features break-through technologies such as advanced waveforms to offer unparallel performance for its size and weight.”
