Arlington, VA (PRWEB) August 08, 2015
METIS Solutions, LLC announced today a strategic partnership with DroneShield, LLC. “DroneShield” for the Department of Defense (DoD) and Special Operations markets.
DroneShield is a drone detection and response company based in Washington, D.C. that provides advanced commercial drone detection and warning systems. Their mission centers on providing a wide range of security solutions against drones through a unique system of acoustic detection sensors (Patent Pending) that allows for “high detection rates with low false alarms.” In addition, this acoustic technology allows the DroneShield sensors to detect drones that may be flying to GPS coordinates rather than radio frequency controlled or that may be invisible to radars.
The METIS-DroneShield partnership will provide services that range from designing, installing, and configuring to maintaining the hardware and updating databases with the latest drone models for Department of Defense and Special Operations clients.
Michael Waltz, METIS President said, “Small commercial drones, often called quad-copters are rapidly proliferating around the world. Drones offer many useful services but can also be used for nefarious purposes – from surveillance to a terrorist attack. METIS is excited to partner its government services capabilities with the DroneShield technology to support our Special Operators and other DoD clients. We are convinced, any facility or location worth guarding or protecting will require protection from Small UAVs. Increasing numbers of incidents such as the drone penetration of the White House grounds and drones being flown by various groups in the war Iraq validates our belief that the need for drone detection will continue to grow.”
