DroneSentry Enhanced Via Partnership with Nearmap
Australian counter-UAS specialist DroneShield has launched a new version of its command and control DroneSentry software package.
The “intuitive and feature-rich software platform” now provides users with 3D content, artificial intelligence data sets, geospatial tools and high-resolution aerial imagery (for Australia, New Zealand and North America) via a new partnership with location-intelligence provider Nearmap. The system is compatible both with DroneShield’s own sensors and effectors, and a wide range of third-party systems. The Nearmap enhancements will be available as an optional upgrade, with the basic DroneSentry C2 product continuing to be available “for cost-sensitive customers,” the company stated.
“One of DroneShield’s differentiators is that we are both a sensor manufacturer and an integrator,” the company’s CEO, Oleg Vornik, said. “Providing a streamlined and standardised hard/software bundle that gives our user community an easy to deploy and run command-and-control software will be critical as more fixed and pop-up site users seek to deploy counter-UAS products. Importantly, the offering is already validated by deployments such as US Air Force and Australian Army, amongst number of other tier 1 end users globally.”
“Our customers tell us they prefer Nearmap because of the quality, city-scale coverage, and currency of our location intelligence offering,” Nearmap CEO and MD, Dr Rob Newman, said. “Combine this market-leading geo-spatial capability with DroneShield’s innovative software, and the ability to defend against the threat of autonomous aerial vehicles, including drones, is even more powerful.”
