We protect organizations from malicious drones.

Our Story

Drone technology has advanced tremendously in the past few years, and today drones significantly aid in surveying, disaster relief, delivery, and myriad business and consumer applications. In the wrong hands, however, a drone’s accessibility, capabilities, and ease of flying makes it especially suitable for hacking, surveillance, and terrorism. Dedrone protects organizations from malicious drones by securing the airspace using advanced hardware and software technology.
