- United Kingdom military to test DroneGun on 21 June 2017.
- Trial involves a range of UK government agencies.
The trial follows a number of short-term and extended trials by other European military and law enforcement users (as well as governmental users outside of Europe) over the recent months, and the recent DREP certification in France (establishing DroneGun as safe to use by personnel throughout Europe), announced to the market on 13 June 2017. It also precedes several trials expected to be conducted by other governmental users globally in the next several months, as well as ongoing extended trials currently being conducted by governmental users.
Trials are a pre-requisite step in military procurement processes. The UK trial is particularly important given the UK's status as having the seventh largest military budget globally, and the active involvement of the UK military in conflicts requiring counterdrone equipment.
