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.
During a two-month period in mid-2017, nearly 100 unauthorized drones were detected flying near the Pentagon. Airspace security technology was deployed at two nearby military bases through a joint project between Dedrone and the Department of Defense.
It’s only a matter of time before drones will carry chemicals, explosives, or kamikaze into a military base. The clock is ticking, and we don’t want to wait until it’s too late.
Dedrone RF Sensors detect drones up to a mile away and give early warning of drone-based threats, often even before the drone takes off.
Warnings and alerts are triggered automatically and can be sent to a mobile phone, monitoring platform, or any API-compatible system.
Active countermeasures, including RF and GPS jamming, can easily and quickly remove a drone before it gets too close to the facility.
Once a drone is disabled, it can be retrieved, confiscated, and examined to determine the nature of the threat.
By incorporating sensors such as RF or video cameras, users can track the flight path of the drone and reveal the location of the pilot.
All alerts, flight paths, and video footage of drone threats are automatically recorded and catalogued. These are easily exported to share with internal and external stakeholders.
Dedrone’s direction-finding technology locates the positions of drones and their pilots, adding important situational awareness of the airspace.
Drones often look for security gaps, on both physical and IT infrastructure. By identifying potential areas of exploit, teams can examine their security for potential gaps.
