DroneShield Receives Counter-UAS Order From US Agency
A U.S. government agency has awarded DroneShield a multi-year, $33 million order for counter-unmanned aerial system equipment and related services.
The company said in a press release it expects to receive full payment for the order by the end of 2023.
DroneShield U.S. CEO Matt McCrann said the award is rooted in customer trust and represents his company’s mission commitment.
According to the company, its order backlog is currently valued at $62 million while its pipeline is worth $200 million.
Earlier in July, a $9.9 million order was made by a customer within the Five Eyes community, DroneShield said. Five Eyes is an intelligence coalition composed of the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada and New Zealand.
To meet growing counter-UAS demand, the company recently announced an expansion of its U.S. headquarters in Fauquier County, Virginia, and the recruitment of new talent with expertise in drones, security and sensors.
