Getting Started with Drone Detection

Assess drone threats in just two steps

Assess drone threats in just two steps

  1. An RF-160 sensor is installed on-site and automatically detects: drones and connects to DedroneTracker.AI via LTE.
  2. DedroneTracker.AI software and sensors provide a comprehensive analysis of drone activity and incidents in your airspace.

Expandable at any time:

To scale your airspace security system, integrate additional drone detection sensors such as RF-360, PTZ cameras and radar.

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

01. Which sensors are cloud-enabled?

The RF-160 and the RF-360 can connect to the cloud.

02. RF-160: How many drones are in your airspace?

The RF-160 typically has a range of 1.6 km for most drones and up to 5.0 km under ideal conditions for specific drones. Using radio signals, it reliably detects and classifies almost all commercial, hobby and home-built drones and the entire DJI product line. The DedroneTracker.AI software processes and analyzes data from the RF-160 and automatically generates reports with meaningful information about drone activity in the monitored airspace. On this basis, the detection system can be optimally adapted and expanded.

03. RF-360: Where are drones and pilots located?

The RF-360 is another Dedrone radio frequency sensor which builds on data from the RF-160. RF-360 recognizes and classifies all types of drones. Two or more RF-360 sensors can work together to locate the drone and remote control in real-time, thus finding the pilot. Security staff can then mobilize to a specific location to track down and stop the pilot, or initiate other protective and defense measures.

04. How are the RF sensors connected to the cloud?

The RF-160 and RF-360 connect to the cloud via the integrated mobile data link (USA, Canada and large parts of Europe) or via Ethernet.

05. Where should the RF sensors be mounted?

Both the RF-160 and the RF-360 are installed as high as possible on a mast with a clear view of the surroundings (minimum height 3 m).

06. Who installs the RF sensor?

The sensor is installed either by the customer or a Dedrone partner.

07. What’s needed to begin detecting drones?

You will receive the credentials for your account via e-mail, which you use to log in via the browser. Then all you have to do is enter the provided product ID. Thanks to the integrated

GPS, the sensor is automatically positioned on the map and the drone detection starts immediately.

08. How do I get the reports on drone activity?

Each drone alarm is communicated in real time via user interface, SMS and e-mail. The DedroneTracker.AI software stores all data on drone activity. Via the user interface, you can automatically generate an analysis for a desired period of time and have it sent to you automatically on a regular basis.

09. How does the system keep up with advancements in drone technology?

Dedrone’s DroneDNA database contains specific properties of available drones, and is used to identify and classify drones.

The DroneDNA database is constantly updated to ensure the latest drone models are detected.

10. What customer data is stored in the cloud?

No personal data (PII) is stored in the cloud, except the access data for the respective customer account (login and password).

11. Where is DedroneTracker.AI hosted?

  • Amazon Web Services (AWS)
  • Customer hosted accounts are local to their region Accounts of European customers in Europe (Frankfurt, Ireland, Paris or London)
  • SOC-1 (previously SSAE 16), SOC-2 and SOC-3 compliant

12. How is data secured in DedroneTracker.AI?

  • AWS is the world‘s leading cloud provider, leader in safety standards and is GDRP compliant.
  •, Inc. is certified under EU-US PrivacyShield(EU-US Privacy Shield). AWS also falls under this certification.
  • Dedrone is GDRP compliant and our solution allows our customers to also be compliant with GDRP.
