“The Preakness Stakes is a premier event for our company and the health and safety of horses, riders, stakeholders, guests, employees and the community is our highest priority. Prioritizing safety includes how we address airspace security to protect against drone threats. As the Chief Security Officer for 1/ST, owners of the Preakness Stakes, and as former Chief of Operations for the FBI’s Counter UAS Unit, I knew Dedrone was the ideal airspace security partner to provide detection, analytics and protection for our event. Dedrone allowed our team to focus on executing the safe, stellar race day operations that 1/ST is known for.”
Militaries across the world continue to invest in drone technology to survey and conduct strategic offensive measures to protect and defend. The same technology is accessible and being used by politically-motivated terror groups aimed to cause harm to innocent civilians. Because of this, government agencies are turning to drone detection to not only track their own drone traffic, but also identify when an unauthorized drone has entered their airspace.
Dedrone offers complete counter-sUAS technology solutions, providing customized, end-to-end sUAS threat detection and mitigation solutions for U.S. federal departments and agencies, including the U.S. Department of Defense.
