New deal boosts D13’s raid on Asian counter-drone market

By

Counter-drone company Department 13 has sold its Mesmer solution to a South East Asian customer as part of a strategy by the Asian organisation designed to secure its airspace.

The deal with the unnamed customer was sealed following demonstrations by D13 at the recent Milipol International Exhibition of Homeland Security.

According to Department 13 chief executive Jonathan Hunter, the deal with the Asia-based company represents a beachhead in D13’s strategy to penetrate the Asian counter-drone market.

“Following the commercial release of our counter drone solution in January, our aggressive marketing programme across the Asia Pacific region is beginning to deliver strong sales results and we are confident of continuing to convert our growing pipeline of opportunities.”

In April, the ASX-listed US-based D13 was granted a US patent on technology that it says will further enhance its drone defence capabilities and advanced communication networking.

The patent was granted under D13’s licence agreement with GenghisComm Holdings and, according to the company, addresses a key component in its counter‐drone defence solution for managing large sensor arrays used to detect and track drones.

Also in April, D13 secured a US$432,000 contract with the United States Department of Defence to design counter-drone technology.
