DroneShield company has introduced the DroneCannon Remote Weapon, which was declared on October 10, designed in response to the user needs.

DroneCannon RW from DroneShield company provides a lightweight, soft kill, drone jamming solution to be used on remote weapon stations. The DroneCannon RW module will force drones which are single or in a swarm into a fail-safe mode where they will either hover or slowly descend.

This will let the operator to implement a kinetic weapon or other mounted equipment to more deftly neutralize the target. It provides an enhanced 500 m jamming range for 2.4 GHz, 5.8 GHz and GNSS. Also, the DroneShield jamming technology has progressed particularly for the drone mitigation. Thus, acting as an effective response to an emergency threat.

The DroneCannon Remote Weapon has been designed for use on any remote weapons station. DroneCannon RW has been handled precisely for mobile operations, integrating a lightweight chassis and optimized electronics with shock and vibration isolators.

Historically, DroneShield has concentrated on “soft kill” counter-drone solutions, that means the products of DroneShield prohibited drones via technological interference rather than physical kinetic impact. User feedback is that many global militaries are looking for soft kill solutions that combine with their existing hard kill systems.

DroneShield systems were being used in Boston Marathon.

“The release of DroneCannon RW marks two important milestones for DroneShield. Firstly, DroneShield is now one of the very few defence and security companies enabling its customers to utilise a combination of soft kill and hard kill counterdrone solutions, with an optional detection add-on through other DroneShield products, all seamlessly integrated into one system. Secondly, this system persists an entry into the on-vehicle counterdrone segment, following the Rapid Scout partnership, something that is technologically challenging and unique in the market,” commented company CEO Oleg Vornik.
