energetic buying at the open for DRO, after release of the Q.
QUOTE
The Company raised $9,550,000 in new capital, from a substantially institutional investor base, transforming, expanding and further institutionalising its share register, market capitalisation and market liquidity, and securing its capital base for a long-term runway.

While the Company’s cash inflows from customers were $333,779 for the quarter, the Company ended the quarter with approximately $3,000,000 worth of orders that have been placed by the Company’s customers and for which payments are expected to be made in the subsequent quarters

.
Approx. $200,000 of the cash inflows during the quarter related to a new order placed by the Ministry of Defence of a large Middle Eastern country for which drone defence has recently become a critical national security issue.

The Australian Department of Defence placed the first substantial order with DroneShields' recently released RfPatrolTM product, in the amount of $700,000.

DroneShield entered into a watershed partnership with BT, the largest telecommunications provider in the UK, which is rolling out a suite of counterdrone services nationwide in the UK, with DroneShield as its sole counterdrone provider.

The Company continued to progress multiple substantial contracts globally, with a keypotential bid for an order in the amount of $60 million - $70 million having progressed from the preferred bidder status to a negotiated form of agreemen

I had a look at the latest Investor Presentation: there seems to be an escalation of sophistication (YGWYPF) in DRO's offerings. Most seem to work in 1-2km and possibly up to 5km.

Because the drone is a targeted device, usually with two-way feed, real tit signal emitted and commands out, they may actually take over controls and thus land or otherwise render safe. Check out some of the links.

I'd say, just guessing, the weapons that hit the refineries were more V3's. Wernher von Braun would be impressed.

One of the detection systems that Drone Shield uses is the sound of the rotors.
Its not loud, but certainly detectable.
At first, I thought that this was a pretty smart way of detecting, , as physics says that the rotors will emit noise, not necessarily at the frequencies of human hearing, but beat osscillations non the less.
Then it suddenly hit me that in the same way that Automatic Noise Reduction Headphones work, a drone maker could add a sample of the noise being made and just emit the same noise, but at 180 degrees out of phase.
Thus the two cancel each other out and silence is all that remains.
The next step is to change the algorithms in the GPS satellite software such that the satellites can be switched off to non "friendly" devices.

QUOTE
Necessity is the mother of invention, and the growth of drone use by non-state actors represents the latest innovation in a never-ending arms race against technologically superior foes.

Not content to simply be dominated in conventional military terms, many groups have sought for ways to undermine their opponents, negating their advantages in novel ways.

Unlike a normal arms race, in which two foes on relative parity seek to match and one-up one another within an existing context (eg tank versus tank), this unconventional approach seeks to change the very rules of the game itself (eg deny the enemy their ability to use tanks at all).....

QUOTE
DroneShield Limited (DRO) designs detection systems that use specialised technology to achieve levels of precision and sensitivity that are not possible with other methods.

The Company has developed multilayered pre-eminent drone detection and disruption solutions that protect people, organisations and critical infrastructure from intrusion from drones.

forming a partnership with BT, in the UK
QUOTE
.... effect of the partnership is that BT, with its millions of customers in the UK and globally, including, notably, airports and other civil infrastructure, is rolling out an anti-drone service UK-wide, using DroneShield’s products and technology.

While DroneShield has previously co-operated with larger organizations in several countries, this is a very different arrangement, with a very different company. This partnership with BT, coupled with the urgent need for the solution across the UK, cracks open for DroneShield one of the world’s largest anti-drone markets that is also ahead of other countries in adopting anti-drone technologies. This is an important step-change for DroneShield.

This is the first time that a major global telecommunications provider will offer standalone drone mitigation services to its customer base....

QUOTE
In the December quarter update issued on Thursday, DroneShield said it “experienced a substantial increase in inbound governmental and corporate queries during, and following, the Gatwick events”.

This flowed into the first quarter of the new calendar year. DroneShield’s cash receipts for the first three weeks of January 2019 were $728,628.

“Following the Gatwick events, in the first three weeks of the 2019 calendar year, DroneShield received approximately 50 per cent more in cash from its customers than it did during the entire previous quarter,” Droneshield told its investors.

QUOTE
Its December quarter cash burn from operating activities was $1.08 million, taking cash burn for 2018 to $4.42m. Based on expected costs, the company said it expects to spend $1.6m in this quarter leaving $1.2 million to spare.

DroneShield’s commercial deals include selling anti-drone guns to “security agencies” across Central America and Asia, as well as European military outfit Thales, a Western law enforcement agency, and Middle Eastern telecommunications company Zain.

“Drones being flown near commercial aircraft have continued to disrupt operations at airports around the world, and close calls and collisions between drones and aircraft continue to rise, with the Gatwick events most prominent but by no means an isolated incident,” the company said. “Airports, police, fire fighters and paramedics have all expressed concern.”
expect CR sooner than later?
