DroneShield Ltd has announced that UK Government’s Centre for Protection of National Infrastructure (“CPNI”) has formally certified DroneShield’s DroneSentinel multi-sensor counter-drone system. 
As a result, DroneSentinel has been included in the CPNI Catalogue of Security Equipment (“CSE”). CSE forms an approved list of products for deployment across various critical infrastructure customers in the UK, such as airports, stadiums, and other key sites.

DroneShield’s CEO Oleg Vornik commented,

“The importance of this world’s first formal Government certification is that it substantially reduces procurement cycle in the nascent counterdrone space by giving prospective customers certainty of product quality. We expect this certification to drive significant additional end customer interest in UK and also globally.”

BT Group plc and DroneShield’s partner in the UK, has welcomed the CPNI certification.

BT’s Dave Pankhurst, Head of Drone Solutions at BT, commented

“By partnering with DroneShield we’re able to provide our customers with a best-in-class, integrated and secure drone solution that will protect infrastructure from unwanted drone activity. The CPNI certification further reinforces to our customers that BT is able to provide a capability of the highest specification ensuring safety and security is maintained.”
