Sydney-based DroneShield has been assigned NATO Stock Numbers (NSNs) for four of its products: RfPatrol Mk2, DroneGun Mk3, DroneGun Mk4, and DroneSentry-X. This follows up on the assignment in 2019 of NSN for DroneGun Tactical. That NSN significantly contributed towards DroneGun Tactical becoming one of DroneShield’s best-selling items
NATO militaries, which are the largest existing customer segment for DroneShield, are now able to purchase these additionally listed products “off the shelf”. An NSN is a 13-digit numeric code identifying all the “standardised material items of supply” as they have been recognised by all NATO countries including the US Department of Defense It allows for any of the 31 NATO militaries to purchase the items on a “military catalogue” basis, significantly simplifying the procurement process.
The assignment of an NSN is also relevant to non-NATO customers in that it is considered to signify that the product has achieved a certain level of acceptance by the world’s most discerning military customers, the members of NATO and NATO’s allies. The Company expects that the receipt of these additional NSNs for will assist its sales efforts in both NATO and non-NATO countries.
