Department 13 (ASX:D13) has started to crack the Australian market – just in time for commercial sales in December.
The so-called ‘drone hunters’ told the market today that it had been invited to speak at a key defence convention in Adelaide next month.
D13 will be talking about the emerging threat of drone terrorism, presenting its MESMER system as a possible solution to the problem.
Calling Australia a “critical market”, D13 said by taking part in events such as the ADF Future Land Forces Conference it could help grow awareness of the threat posed by autonomous systems such as drones.

D13’S technology could become commercially available in December.
This is date is yet to be bedded, so don’t base any investment decision on this fact alone and seek professional financial advice for further information.
Before then D13 has booked in a number of demonstrations and competitions which could see commercial interest in the technology grow.
This includes the MITRE Challenge in August and the Black Dart showcase event in September.
The latter is a presentation of tech given to the US government.
About Department 13 (ASX:D13)
D13 has quickly gained a reputation as a so-called ‘drone hacker’.
It has developed, among its suite of technologies, a way to bring down unmanned aerial vehicles by effectively hi-jacking the signal between operator and drone in order to bring the UAV down safely.
As a way of proving its concept and validating its technology, D13 will be showcasing its abilities along with seven other drone security companies at the MITRE CUAS Challenge at Marine Corps Base Quantico in August 2016.
D13 has been selected as one of the finalists, and will present its patented MESMER System at the event.
Later in the year in September, D13 will take its wares to Florida, to demonstrate the effectiveness of MESMER at BlackDart, the DoD’s specialised ‘Counter UAS Test Range’ in Florida.
As an event, BlackDart was created to attract the best technological solutions to drone defence, with dozens of entrants each year.
