Counter drone company DroneShield has successfully demonstrated its TIPS-C counter-drone solution at a US Air Force Base. The TIPS-C has been produced with Trakka Systems and demonstrated to key decision-makers from a few companies.

During the last Wednesday in February, DroneShield and Trakka Systems executives met with decision-makers from Hanscom and Eglin AFB at the Northwest Florida Fairgrounds to demonstrate their counter-drone tech in action.

The Trakka Interceptor Package Solution or TIPS-C uses DroneShield’s DroneSentry-C2 command and control platform to display the data in an easy-to-understand dashboard for users to access.

Some of the partners at the demonstration shared some feedback on what they saw:

“No OEM has been able to successfully demonstrate an integrated system that detects UAS, slews optical sensor onto target and tracks, then classifies the UAS.”

“Setup time from covert to up and detecting was less than 10 minutes. For a mobile, multi-sensor system that’s unprecedented.”

The system is reinforced with Trakka’s TrakkaCam and DroneShield’s RadarZero sensors and DroneOptID algorithms. All of this combined allows it to “create an exceptional joint-capability drone detection and tracking system, with slew-to-cue camera operations for visual threat assessment and video evidence recording.”

The new counter-drone system was shown off in a demonstration to the Tampa Police Department Special Operations Division’s chief pilot, five TPD Special Ops groups, and a technical liaison to the FBI. The demonstration took place at the Tampa Police training facility and was a success.
