DroneShield Limited (ASX:DRO or DRO.AU) (“DroneShield” or the “Company”) is pleased to advise its participation in The British Army’s Army Warfighting Experiment (Autonomous Warrior) 2018.

The British Army has launched this four-week exercise, with a Battlegroup from the 1st Armoured Infantry Brigade (United Kingdom) providing the exercising troops and taking responsibility of command and control.  British soldiers will test and evaluate the effectiveness of robotic and autonomous systems (RAS) on the battlefield. These technological advances will play a key role in the Army’s strike capability, ensuring British forces remain unmatched on the global stage. Autonomous Warrior will develop capabilities in surveillance which will greatly improve the effectiveness of long-range and precision targeting by service personnel.

The UK Defence Minister Mark Lancaster stated, “Our Armed Forces continue to push the limits of innovative warfare to ensure that we stay ahead of any adversaries or threats faced on the battlefield. Autonomous Warrior sets an ambitious vision for Army operations in the 21st Century as we integrate drones, unmanned vehicles and personnel into a world-class force for decades to come.”

The exercise is the result of a large-scale collaboration between the British Army, the Royal Navy, the Royal Air Force, the United States Army, the UK Ministory of Defence, the UK Defence Science and Technology Laboratory and the industry participants who were invited to participate.

DroneShield was invited to participate in the exercise and is providing its DroneSentinelTM system to the British Army as a rapidly deployable, counterdrone system to enable troops to detect and defend against hostile drones. Oleg Vornik, DroneShield’s CEO commented “we were tasked with training and advising British troops on the deployment and operation of our DroneSentinelTM system.  This allowed the troops to independently operate and integrate the capability, using the system to autonomously defend against drones and also inform commanders about the presence of threat drones”.

Mission First Tactical Introduces the Extreme Duty 5.56 Polymer Mag

Tuesday, November 20th, 2018

The EXDPM556 magazines are the latest addition to the MFT Magzine line-up. Over engineered for today’s modern warrior.

Horsham, Pa. (November 2018) – Mission First Tactical, LLC (MFT™), a leader in USA-made rifle/carbine accessories, is proud to introduce the latest addition to the MFT magazine line, the Extreme Duty 5.56 Polymer Magazine (EXDPM556). Designed for the AR15/M4 platform but allowing for use with wide range of non-AR15/M4 platforms.

Manufactured using the newest material technology and processes, the magazines with their next generation long glass fiber polymer construction offer the trifecta of perfection in structural performance; strength, durability and stiffness. The stiffness allows the magazine to maintain its integrity without additional weight with an additional benefit of top performance even at elevated temperatures. The longer length reinforcing fibers produce increased strength and prevents deformation and polymer fatigue. Additionally, the Extreme Duty 5.56 mags offer increased durability through a more efficient energy transfer between the polymer and the longer fiber filaments during an impact. A long-life USGI-Spec stainless steel spring is corrosion resistant. The four-way, anti-tilt, self-lubricating follower keeps the rounds aligned and makes mag feeding consistent and reliable, while virtually eliminating jambs.

Confidence in handling the new Extreme Duty 5.56 mags is a piece of cake, even during weather or duress. The front and rear of the gripping surface is ribbed for a positive grip, even with gloves. An oversized bolt-catch provides enhanced reliability of the bolt-catch operation. The flared floor plate allows for an easier grip in handling and extraction and one-hand reloads. Wrapping up the multiple benefits to the newest addition to the MFT magazine line is a paint dox matrix to allow for easy marking and identification of magazines and the tool-less disassembly with the double floor plate safety release tabs.

Mission First Tactical Extreme Duty 5.56 Polymer magazines are built for hard shooting and extreme treatment and shooting conditions and come with a Lifetime Warranty.

Extreme Duty 5.56 Polymer Mag Specs:
Model Number: EXDPM556
Height: 7.494”
Width: .940”
Length: 2.525”
Color: Black, SDE (Tan)
MSRP: $12.99

CRO MARCH Belt

Monday, November 19th, 2018

Not your father’s MARCH belt.

Over the past year, CRO has been developing a scalable and modular load-carriage system for medics. The system is designed to scale up or down based on mission set and is the latest in a product line designed exclusively for the ground medic. See more at CROMEDICALGEAR.COM

The MARCH Belt was designed to work on the CRO Gunfighter™ Belt, a very well made inner/outer gun belt featuring horizontal and vertical PALs to allow for scaling the pouches based on need. The belt is extremely rigid and holds in place for extended wear.

In addition to the CRO Gunfighter™ Belt, The MARCH Belt is sold with five pouches and two tourniquet covers. The Small and Medium Gen Med pouches have CRO’s signature bungee retention panel with vertical pockets to allow customization. They are designed to open flat or be set to open at varying degrees depending on the medic’s preference. The rear pouch is a tear-away design and features the same inside setup as the Hybrid IFAK™.

This versatile product promotes the necessity of working off the body to deliver as many advanced interventions as possible in the shortest amount of time. This is a step forward towards dropping the med bag all-together.

The MARCH Belt will be available on GSA and other DoD contract vehicles in the coming weeks. For more information please visit cromedicalgear.com or email operator@cromedicalgear.com.

Berlin Police Take Delivery of Rheinmetall Survivor R Special Operations Vehicle

Sunday, November 18th, 2018

Rheinmetall has formally handed over a heavily protected Survivor R special operations vehicle to the Berlin Police Department. Dr Barbara Slowik, Chief of the Berlin Police Department, symbolically handed over the keys to the Operations Directorate, represented by Criminal Investigation Division Director Martin John. This versatile vehicle, ordered as part of a package of counterterrorism measures in late September 2017, is specially configured to meet the needs of the Operations Directorate of the Berlin Police. Berlin follows Saxony as the third German state to equip its police special operators with the Survivor R.

Made by Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles, the Survivor R epitomizes Rheinmetall’s commitment to the twin modern imperatives of security and mobility. Developed in cooperation with Austrian special vehicle maker Achleitner, the Survivor R is superbly suited to police SWAT team-type operations. Vehicles of this kind are particularly important in high- risk situations when special operators need to be transported safely to the area of operations, or for evacuating persons from the danger zone.

The Survivor R is based on a high-performance 4×4 MAN truck chassis, outfitted with a steel armour passenger compartment. Capable of reaching a top speed of over 100 km/h, this high-mobility vehicle combines tried-and-tested automotive engineering from large-scale production runs with state-of-the-art force protection technology from Rheinmetall.

Systematic use of civilian off-the-shelf and standard military components results in a sensibly priced vehicle, while simultaneously benefitting from Rheinmetall MAN’s global service and maintenance network. This makes the Survivor R a cost-efficient, easy-to-maintain vehicle with low lifecycle costs and high operational readiness.

Rheinmetall – a powerful partner of the police and security services

Friday, November 16th, 2018

Newington, N.H. (November 15, 2018) – SIG SAUER, Inc. is pleased to announce the expansion of the Legion Series of firearms with the introduction of the P938 and P238 micro-compact pistols. Legion is an exclusive product line developed by SIG SAUER based on input from elite shooting professionals, and designed to exceed the expectations of the serious shooter.

“The introduction of these two micro-compact pistols to the Legion Series was driven by our Legion members whom have been asking us to expand this product line,” began Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, Commercial Sales, SIG SAUER, Inc. “With the addition of the Legion series P938 and P238 pistols, not only have we have expanded our Legion series of pistols, we have also introduced an entirely new category of pistols to Legion with the micro-compact.”
