• Company’s share price has shown high volatility since listing on 21 June 2016
  • In the past year, DroneShield announced multiple new contract signings
  • DroneShield continues to develop new hardware and software systems

Historically, many technological advances have had both positive and negative applications. Unmanned aerial vehicles are creeping into delivery systems, benefitting businesses needing topographical mapping, such as the mining sector.

Increasingly, the world’s defence and government sectors are becoming alarmed at the harmful use of drones, paving the way for a high-tech firm like DroneShield to prosper.

The company has seven hardware and software systems, some designed for both “detect and defeat” and some for detection and monitoring. The systems range from handheld to surface mountable platforms, suitable for use from vehicles and ships.

DroneShield operates in Australia and the US, serving the Military, Government, Law Enforcement, Critical Infrastructure, and Commercial sectors globally.

Since listing in 2016, the share price has climbed from $0.23 to $0.30 per share, with significant volatility allowing ample opportunity to buy on the dips.
