DroneShield Ltd. today announced the launch of the additional product DroneNode, in response to end-user requirements. DroneNode is an evolution of the company’s existing DroneCannon product, a portable, compact and inconspicuous counterdrone jamming device which can be utilized at large outdoor events by law enforcement without raising public concern. This product is particularly relevant given the recent drone attack on the Venezuelan president, and the high profile mailbomb terrorist attacks in the United States, heightening the awareness of law enforcement globally to potential threats to high profile political targets, according to the company.

DroneShield’s recent credentials in the area include the 2018 Olympics, the 2018 Commonwealth Games, 2018 ASEAN-Australia Special Summit, the 2017 Hawaii IRONMAN World Championship, and the 2015 to 2017 Boston Marathons,” said Oleg Vornik, DroneShield’s CEO. “The company’s products are well positioned to protect large public gatherings globally.”
