DroneShield is pleased to release DroneSentry-C2 Tactical (DroneSentry-C2T), in response to significant end user demand. DroneSentry-C2T is a ruggedised, on-the-edge version of DroneShield’s main Command-and-Control solution DroneSentry-C2. The system provides operators with real-time C-UAS situational awareness from a single device or network of DroneShield and third-party devices, such as the RfPatrol Mk2 body worn drone detector and the DroneSentry-X on-the-move and expeditionary fixed site drone detection and defeat system.
The C2T provides an intuitive satellite map-based display, with 2-way communication between the user and the distributed network of counter-drone devices, demonstrating drone detections from a network of sensors back to a central point anywhere to a rugged user tablet, as well as ability (where lawful) to activate drone defeat systems. The launch of the DroneSentry-C2 Tactical enables existing DroneShield end users to enhance their solutions as an ‘add-on’ capability. Additionally, the DroneSentry-C2 Tactical offers a new entry level C2 solution to customers who do not require the full DroneSentry solution.
Angus Bean, DroneShield’s CTO, commented “The release of the DroneSentry-C2 Tactical solution is in line with modern defence technology trends, pushing enhanced situational awareness and decision-making tools to the operator at ‘the edge’. It allows personnel on the ground to take a more strategic view of the area of operation.”
“DroneShield is both a sensor maker and a developer of C2/sensor integration systems, which enables us to provide an optimised experience for the end-user. The release of the DroneSentry-C2T enables us to utilise our position as the global leader in the C-UAS handheld systems, and introduce the world’s first command-and-control system for a hand-held C-UAS environment.”
“As we are seeing in Ukraine and other places around the world, handheld C-UAS devices enable cost-effective, mass-scale drone detection and defeat capability. DroneSentry-C2T enables to network these groups of devices together, without a limitation on size of the amount of devices, to provide central point of awareness and response, either in hands on a single master user, or distributing information amongst multiple users in the field.”
