Types of Drone Detection Technology
Just as the drone market continues to develop rapidly, so does the airspace security market. Many come to Dedrone to help make sense of it all - starting with how does drone detection work? In our thousands of conversations across the world, we always begin by building a foundation of terminology.
Dedrone’s system gathers information from various sensors, analyzes it, and triggers a response. Our software is sensor agnostic, meaning it can connect to a variety of detection technologies. Dedrone’s data processing software, DedroneTracker, is a machine-learning program that fuses sensor data to make a near instantaneous decision whether or not a drone is a threat.
Passive Drone Countermeasures
Passive countermeasures protect your facility by leading people to safety, blocking sensitive areas from view, locking (cell) doors and gates, shutting down parts of the IT infrastructure, and searching for dropped objects.
Drone pilots can easily conduct reconnaissance of a protected site with a drone. DroneTracker’s analytics and instant reporting allows security teams to recognize patterns in drone activity and use this information to adjust standard operating and response procedures. Protect your site from drones before an incident occurs!
Active countermeasures stop the drones in flight. Many drone defensive measures require legal permission to implement, or are reserved for use by government agencies.
DedroneDefender reimagines mitigation technology by delivering a sleek, connected gun for targeted precision Radio Frequency (RF) jamming. Given its small, lightweight form factor and ease of use, DedroneDefender is the ideal counter-drone mitigation solution for civilian, state and local law enforcement in urban environments.
At only 7.5 pounds and just 22 inches long, DedroneDefender is one of the lightest and smallest precision jamming systems available on the market. It comes equipped with narrow-band jamming to minimize disruption to other devices and meets military standard MIL-STD-810H. DedroneDefender’s use of narrow-band or “comb” jamming reduces the risk of interference with other systems in the area like Wi-Fi and is specifically configured to the identified malicious drone’s protocols as prescribed by DedroneTracker detection solution. Once communications are interrupted on a drone, it enters a pre-programmed safety mode to minimize risk to others and damage to the drone.
Dedrone’s capabilities seamlessly integrate with a wide variety of sensing and mitigation products to amplify capabilities and allow for personalized solutions. For organizations with authorization to use offensive mitigation technologies, Dedrone offers DroneDefender. DroneDefender is an RF-based defeat system that has been adopted as a handheld solution to counter small UAS such as quadcopters and fixed wing airframes, without compromising surrounding safety or risking collateral damage.
