The company expects to receive full payment of the order prior to the end of 2023 and anticipates this year to be another record year, by a wide margin, following the previous record year in 2022.

This latest order follows a $9.9 million order announced earlier this month, from another customer among the Five Eyes community.

DroneShield current order backlog (committed orders in the process of fulfilment) stands at a record $62 million, with a current pipeline of over $200 million across more than 80 opportunities.
