DroneShield releases DroneCannon Remote Weapon (RW) TM
DroneShield announced today the release of their newest product the DroneCannon Remote Weapon (RW).Historically, DroneShield has focused on “soft kill” counterdrone solutions, which means that DroneShield’s products interdict drones through technological interference rather than physical kinetic impact. Military users around the world recognise that “soft kill” drone defences are particularly effective, however, they already have in service “hard kill” systems that are not drone defence-focused (a “hard kill” system is a conventional kinetic weapon that affects its target by physical impact, through bullets and other projectiles). User feedback is that many global militaries are seeking “soft kill” solutions that integrate with their existing “hard kill” systems.
Consequently, the newly-released DroneCannon RWTM is a lightweight “soft kill” counterdrone jammer which is designed for use on remote weapon stations (unmanned gun systems) as part of a combined “hard kill/soft kill” layered system. It is system-agnostic and can be integrated with any third party remote weapon station, thus allowing manufacturers of unmanned weapons systems to add a “soft kill” option to their existing products, which may already be in service.
The system is available for use either as a stand-alone, or a vehicle-mounted product.
