DroneShield Ltd (ASX:DRO) Central American Government Orders DroneSentry and DroneGuns

Sydney, Australia, Oct 2, 2018 - (ABN Newswire) - DroneShield Ltd (ASX:DRO.AX - News) (OTCMKTS:DRSHF - News) ("DroneShield" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has received an order for its DroneSentry(TM) drone mitigation system and DroneGun Tactical(TM) jammer products, for use by a government security agency in Central America. This approximately $300,000 order was placed for the security agency with the Company by the Company's distributor M.G. Suber & Associates LLC.

- A $300,000 order for DroneSentryTM and DroneGun TacticalTM units for use by a Central American government security agency.

- First DroneSentryTM and DroneGun TacticalTM sale in the region.

- Comes only seven weeks after an attempted drone attack on Venezuela's head of state.

This is the first order for DroneSentryTM and DroneGun TacticalTM in the region.

The Company's ability to fulfil the order is subject to approval by a U.S. regulator overseeing defence exports. For clarity, only some of the Company's potential orders require such approval since sales of some of the Company's products to a number of countries allied with the United States do not require U.S. regulatory approval. The Company expects to receive such approval, if it is granted, in the next two months, using the established U.S. defence product sale approval process. There are, of course, no guarantees that the approval for this particular order will be granted.

Oleg Vornik, DroneShield's CEO, commented "We are excited to be deploying two of our flagship product lines with this high profile end-user. Counterdrone security is a hot issue in the region; and the recent reported drone attack on Venezuela's head of state, which occurred only approximately seven weeks ago, has brought this issue into sharp focus for a number of governmental decision makers, both in the region and elsewhere globally."
