Sydney, Feb 28, 2018 AEST (ABN Newswire) - DroneShield Ltd (ASX:DRO) (OTCMKTS:DRSHF) ("DroneShield" or the "Company") is pleased to notify the market of the following statement by The Queensland Police Service (QPS), made today:

The QPS is pleased to announce that DroneShield Ltd (ASX:DRO) ("DroneShield" or the "Company") will provide multiple units of its DroneGunTM product to be utilised by Queensland Police Service during the XXI Commonwealth Games in Queensland in April 2018.

Given the developments in unmanned technologies, and the trends in the nefarious uses of such technologies overseas, security agencies and militaries worldwide are faced with the need to provide aerial security at all high profile events, in addition to conventional security. The Commonwealth Games event is a pre-eminent gathering of approximately 6,600 athletes from approximately 70 countries. Consequently, security agencies are providing the highest level of security at the event.

The QPS is pleased that DroneShield DroneGunsTM will be used as part of counter drone protection during the Games. The use of this equipment by the QPS is an indication of the Company's successful track record of protecting mass events, including the most recent 2017 IRONMAN World Championship and the Boston Marathon for three years running.

Importantly, the deployment of DroneGunsTM showcases the capability of the domestic Australian defence industry. In protecting the community at the April event, the QPS is able to rely on a product developed by an Australian company, that is dedicated to developing a more substantial relationship with a range of Australian federal and state police and security agencies.
