Counter UAS company DroneShield has announced that after commissioning a follow-on order, the Montgomery County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management (MCOHSEM) has deployed DroneShield’s DroneSentry System for the IRONMAN Triathlon Championships 2023 for the second year in a row. The high-profile event was held earlier this month in Woodlands, Texas, drawing athletes and spectators from across the globe. Increased drone activity in recent years necessitated the use of counter drone measures in order to ensure the safety and security of the event.
The DroneSentry multi-sensor platform provides advanced warning and real-time alerts of potential drone threats, enabling quick and efficient responses. Its modular design, sensor agnostic platform, and rapid deployability make it the ideal solution for public safety and critical infrastructure markets.
“Through repeat orders from early adopters, like the Montgomery County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management, it is evident that the need for cutting-edge counter drone detection technology remains crucial for public events and critical infrastructure facilities,” said DroneShield Sales Executive Jayde Wilks. “We are dedicated to assisting security operators in navigating the complex landscape of C-UAS and offering innovative solutions that prioritize community safety and public security.”
DroneShield’s products are seeing increased use by law enforcement, military, and security organizations around the world to protect against drone threats. The combination of RfOne radio frequency sensors, RadarZero radar, and DroneOpt camera system with DroneOptID, an AI-powered detection, identification, and tracking software, position the DroneSentry as a leading choice for public safety and security operators.
“DroneShield was asked to return to the event to support the deployment and assist end-user familiarity with the equipment for the second year, following the initial successful deployment last year,” said Jason Milsaps, Executive Director at Montgomery County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management (MCOHSEM). “The equipment is modular, easy to set up and take down, and provided world-class performance for this critical event.”
