DroneShield has been shortlisted by the US Army for its xTechSearch programme.
xTechSearch allows selected private sector companies to collaborate with the Army in tackling modernisation challenges it faces.
DroneShield was selected for the algorithms in its drone detection technology.
It is sponsored by the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Acquisition, Logistics, and Technology.
The programme gives non-dilutive funding to partaking companies in order to fund demonstrations for the Army’s benefit.
There will also be the opportunity for companies to join the Army’s Science and Technology team in its research.
DroneShield’s CEO Oleg Vornik commented, “The United States Department of Defense (US DoD) has substantially the largest defence budget globally.
“Collaboration activities such as xTechSearch enable opportunities to be embedded into their ecosystem, with potential significant acquisitions following, as the US DoD seeks effective counterdrone solutions. This selection demonstrates cutting edge of DroneShield’s technologies on a global scale.”
