Challenge

Volke is the world’s leader in technical development in automobile design. For more than 30 years, they’ve developed well-engineered vehicle prototypes, from the initial idea, to series production readiness. Protection of their intellectual property is paramount as they build and test vehicles on their outdoor tracks. When they started seeing drones in their airspace, and spy cameras taking images, they came to Dedrone to develop a surveillance and defense system, ensuring their airspace was protected from competitors.

Solution

Dedrone surveyed the land around Volke's car tracks, R&D and manufacturing facilities to assess where there were gaps in their security, and Dedrone's DroneTracker would be most effective. Volke was then served by four cameras, two MultiSensors, and one RF Sensor, creating a network of secured airspace, and alerting them to a drone in their airspace when it was one kilometer away.

Result

Volke worked with Dedrone to set up the DroneTracker to automatically deploy an alerts and countermeasures when drones are present. As a result, they are fully protected from corporate and industrial espionage.
