DroneShield’s (ASX:DRO) DroneGun tactical drone jammer has successfully passed the French Military’s DREP test, which measures electromagnetic emission levels on human users.

The certification is a requirement for deploying the DroneGun with the French military and is valid for other European countries as well.

DroneShield has been actively trialling the DroneGun with a number of militaries globally over the last few months, as drone deployments in armed conflicts continue to rise rapidly.

DroneGun provides a safe countermeasure against a wide range of drone models, allowing a controlled management of drone payload such as explosives.

Importantly, DroneShield achieved the sale of the DroneGun in April 2017 to the military of a G7 country via the company’s distributor.

The sale comes as ISIS and other non-state actors rapidly increase their use of consumer/commercial drones for terrorism.

The company is presently participating in a number of government sector procurement processes internationally.

DroneShield is also in the process of raising up to A$1 million from shareholders via an underwritten share purchase plan.

The funds raised will be used towards the development of the company’s existing drone security products to meet specific customer requirements, such as portable carried detection units.

DroneShield will also focus on the development and integration of additional detection and countermeasure technologies.
