The company will deploy its drone security solution that is used by individuals, organisations and critical infrastructure to protect them from drone intrusions.

Boston Marathon is a high profile annual sporting event, attracting over 500,000 participants and spectators each year.

The event was the site of a tragic terrorist bombing in 2013, killing three civilians and injuring an estimated 264 others.

DroneShield’s systems will be placed at strategic points of the marathon course, with the ability to provide real time alerts to police officers and other security personnel.

The company was the exclusive drone security provider for the Boston Marathon in 2015 and 2016, with this year’s deployment building on the successful relationship.

Last month, DroneShield shipped the first unit of its DroneGun, a tactical drone jammer, for the protection of a multi-hundred million dollar maritime asset.

The company also sold its DroneShield acoustic detection product last month to a distributor, for use by a national security agency of an Asian country.

DroneShield has received unprecedented media and investor attention along with the recent product launches and sales, boosting its share price by about 91% in one month, to $0.44.
