As reported by multiple media sources including AustralianDefence.com.au, DroneShield has secured an approximately AU$900,000 Research and Development contract from a Five-Eyes Government. The contract will focus on the potential of the DroneSentry-X Mk2 and aligns closely with DroneShield’s technology roadmap. The alliance of intelligence agencies known as the Five Eyes is comprised of Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom, the United States, and New Zealand.

Drone protocol capability enhancements that allow for operations in RF-noisy environments have the side-effect of making drones more resilient against certain radio frequency jamming techniques. Software controlled radio frequency disruption increases efficiencies across power consumption, spectrum usage, and technological adaptation.
