DroneShield secures TAK compliance

DroneShield's command-and-control (C2) and sensor systems are now compliant with the US military's Team Awareness Kit (TAK) situational awareness solution, meaning the company's products can contribute to TAK's common operating picture, Janes has learned.

DroneShield is an Australian-US developer of artificial intelligence (AI)-based platforms designed to protect against threats such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). According to the company, its products – including RfPatrol, RfOne, and DroneSentry-X – can now stream data directly to TAK servers, enabling command operations centres and field operators to access real-time sensor information and intelligence.

The development means “DroneShield becomes a compliant data feed and data source” for military operators, DroneShield's chief executive officer Oleg Vornik told Janes .

“You might have a situation where a soldier is in a battle scenario and different sensors show them the location of friendly or enemy assets, like tanks or planes or drones,” he said. “Now our data feeds into their wearable device with a common operating picture.”

The integration will support DroneShield's efforts in the US market, thanks to the use of a common format, Vornik added.

“Customers hate the idea of buying another ‘box' that they have to somehow make work with the rest of their kit,” he said. “They want their problem solved rather than having more stuff thrown at them. This means that DroneShield gear will feed data in a compliant format.”
