Europe’s anti-drone market reached $96.1 million in 2018, representing the third largest regional market in the world. A new anti-drone system has been recently ordered by the European Ministry of Defense for an unknown but large European military force. 

The European Ministry has put in the $100,000 order for DroneShield’s RadarZero anti-drone portable system. The order is for a test run to see if the equipment works well and is a worthy investment. If so, the Ministry will likely purchase more of the same product and a few others to go along with it.

RadarZero is a revolutionary ruggedized metamaterials-based radar. It is powered by the DroneShieldComplete Command-and-Control (“C2”) system.

Weighting only 1.25kg, this anti-drone radar enables effective detection and tracking of nefarious drones. It has been designed for deployment at airports, military bases, and other important buildings that require a drone-free airspace. It can detect and track up to 20 small drones from around 3,273 feet away, according to suasnews.com. 

The system can send real-time reports of rogue drones via email and SMS or via the company’s platform.
