Products from Aussie drone company ‘quite effective’ against Russian drones

DroneShield Chief Executive Oleg Vornik says the company’s technology has been “quite effective” against Russian drones in the war in Ukraine.

“We have done initial deployment of our products under a military aid contract, and we are currently in conversations for additional shipments,” he told Sky News Business Editor Ross Greenwood.

“Russian drones have a number of components that our systems are able to pick up and also … make it effective against Russian drones.

“What we are finding is that even military-grade drones on the Russian side often used commercial off-the-shelf parts so with that we are finding that our gear is quite effective in both detection and defeat of those drones.”
