Counter-drone technology: Dedrone Targets Unwelcome Unmanned Flying Objects

Counter-drone technology company Dedrone has released an updated software platform, providing reliable and actionable airspace activity data for organizations to instantaneously assess and defend against unmanned aerial vehicle threats.

DroneTracker 4.1 enables Dedrone customers to integrate the latest and most advanced radar and cameras, providing additional layers of proactive detection of all Small Unmanned Aircraft System (sUAS), including those that fly autonomously.

Dedrone’s DroneTracker 4.1 software recognizes and classifies RF, WiFi, and non-WiFi sUAS. The software program collects data from hardware inputs, including Dedrone’s radio frequency sensors, the RF-100 and RF-300, PTZ cameras, radar, and acoustic sensors, to determine information such as the drone manufacturer, model, time and length of drone activity. Upon identification of an sUAS, DroneTracker 4.1 triggers alerts and countermeasures. Summary reports are produced and available on-demand for easy analysis and actionable data for security teams to address and combat unwanted sUAS in protected airspace.

When it comes to protecting critical infrastructure, all uncooperative sUAS must be detected and tracked before they breach protected airspace,

shares Joerg Lamprecht, CEO, and co-founder of Dedrone.

All counter-drone technology programs must be customized to the threat profile, environment, and needs of an individual site. DroneTracker 4.1 enables security teams to select the best-in-class sensor hardware to assess and understand their airspace activity accurately, while providing users with a user experience that will enable team members to access critical information and act upon it before,during and after a drone incursion.
