Dedrone Wins 2023 Artificial Intelligence Excellence Award

PHILADELPHIA and STERLING, Va., March 23, 2023 – Dedrone, the leader in smart airspace security, today announced that Business Intelligence Group has awarded DedroneTracker with 2023 Artificial Intelligence Excellence Award. DedroneTracker, an AI / ML-powered command and control (C2) platform for counter-drone operations and security, was recognized for its leadership in sensor fusion technology.

“DedroneTracker implements multiple forms of AI / ML to provide the market’s leading counter-drone security and awareness solution that our customers have come to expect from Dedrone. We are honored that the Business Intelligence Group and the judges for this year’s awards recognized Dedrone for our utilization of AI technologies to secure the airspaces around the world including airports, stadiums, critical infrastructure facilities and more,” said Mary-Lou Smulders, chief marketing officer at Dedrone. “This serves as inspiration to the entire company as we continue providing our clients with the last word in counter-drone solutions.”  

DedroneTracker is an autonomous C2 counter-drone platform leveraging AI-driven sensor fusion to provide drone detection, tracking, identification (DTI) and mitigation through a single UI. By taking inputs from multiple sensor types including radio frequency (RF), radar, video and acoustics, DedroneTracker confirms drone presence and determines precise location. Based on real-time behavior data and imagery, the AI engine offers the operator a queue of prioritized targets through autonomous background interrogation of potential targets while simultaneously tracking multiple friendly drones. DedroneTracker’s easy integration with multiple inputs and outputs is designed to make implementation of counter-drone security seamless regardless of the venue setup and existing security apparatus.  

“We are proud to name Dedrone  a winner in our Artificial Intelligence Excellence Awards program,” said Maria Jimenez, chief nominations officer for Business Intelligence Group. “It was clear to our judges that Dedrone was using AI to improve the lives of their customers. Congratulations to the entire team!”

The Artificial Intelligence Excellence Awards are judged by a mix of business professionals with expertise in their fields. Dedrone was the only counter-drone technology to win and was one of 65 winners selected this year, ranging from Brighterion, a Mastercard company to the Seoul Robotics SENSR™.
