DroneShield (DRO) has announced a new $33 million contract for its anti-drone and drone detection technology from an undisclosed US Government agency.

The contract encompasses the supply of DroneShield equipment and services over several years.

“This achievement reflects their trust in DroneShield and our effective solutions.”

“Looking ahead to the future, the company is excited to continue supporting and expanding its business as it progresses into 2024 and beyond.”

The company will receive full payment for the order before the end of 2023, as Droneshield enjoys another record-breaking year.

DroneShield’s order backlog includes committed orders in the process of fulfilment and stands at an all-time high of $62 million.

The company’s current pipeline comprises over 80 opportunities, totalling more than $200 million.

With this latest contract and strong momentum, DRO looks to expand its market presence and deliver further value to its stakeholders.
