Dedrone, a leading global provider of counter-sUAS capabilities, announced today the release of their newest radio frequency sensors, the Dedrone RF-160. The RF-160 is an upgraded version of the company’s existing foundational RF sensor, the RF-100, and includes new and advanced features such as increased detection range, streamlined installation process, and integrated LTE. The RF-160 quantifies how many drones are in the user’s airspace, providing early detection of drones, before they even take off. Dedrone also manufactures a separate sensor, the RF-300, which provides localization and tracking of sUAS. The RF-160 is available for order today and will begin delivery in March 2020.
New features of the RF-160 include:

“The RF-160 joins the Dedrone suite of products at a time when the global sUAS market is growing at a rapid pace, and organizations are looking to see what the social and economic impact of the rise of drones will have on our day-to-day lives,” shares Joerg Lamprecht, CEO and co-founder of Dedrone. “The RF-160 can be installed quickly and easily for users to easily create a baseline risk assessment on all airspace activity, regardless of the type of manufacturer, or even if it is a home-made drone. Lower airspace security starts with detection, and the RF-160 is the most advanced product to provide our customers with the analytics they need to act upon sUAS threats to their airspace.”
Dedrone’s multi-sensor system enables security providers to match the best-in-class sUAS (small Unmanned Aerial Systems) detection hardware with DroneTracker, Dedrone’s software. The RF-160 detects and classifies drones using radio signals and is ideal for creating a first risk analysis. Dedrone’s multi-sensor platform allows the RF-160 to be supplemented with additional sensors such as the RF-300, which provides localization information, PTZ cameras, and radar systems.
Dedrone is the market and technology leader in airspace security. The Dedrone counter-drone platform combines hardware sensors and machine-learning software, providing early warning, classification of, and mitigation against all drone threats. Based in San Francisco, Dedrone was founded in 2014 and is backed by investors including Felicis Ventures, Menlo Ventures, and John Chambers, Chairman Emeritus of Cisco Systems and founder of JC2 Ventures.
