DroneShield completes Defense Innovation Hub project

January 11, 2023  - By

On Jan. 5, DroneShield announced the completion of its Defense Innovation Hub project. This project resulted in improvements to its optical/thermal AI DroneOptID engine, as well as the development of a multi-sensor fusion artificial intelligence engine (SFAI).

DroneShield’s DroneOptID is AI powered and designed for autonomous optical detection, classification and tracking of UAVs. This engine can be integrated with command-and-control platforms, such as DroneShield’s DroneSentry-C2, which the new SFAI engine will become a core part this year.

The $800,000 project was first commissioned in November 2021 by the Australian Department of Defense, under phase two of the Defense Innovation Hub program. DroneShield was contracted to work on AI in multi-domain applications for the counter-unmanned aerial system space and more general military and government agency applications.
