WhiteFox Defense Technologies, Inc. has delivered the DroneFoxTM Counter UAS (CUAS) system to a major US city’s police department.

US law enforcement organizations are increasingly using new equipment and tactics for prevention and prosecution to counter the use of drones in criminal activities.

DroneFox is an omnidirectional drone detection, identification, and mitigation system with a demonstrated ability to detect and track drones at ranges over 15 km. A massive advantage in a world quickly experiencing a rise in drone threats, DroneFox enables users to assess the threat level whilst providing the location and movement of the drone and pilot in real-time.

As drones become more accessible, the need for counter-drone technology becomes imperative. Drones continue to be used in criminal activities, including monitoring police movements during protests, capturing harassing photos of private citizens, interfering with law enforcement helicopters, and spying on vacant homes prior to burglaries. DroneFox locates and tracks reckless and malicious drones. Authorized users can also employ DroneFox to mitigate drone threats, safely landing them. This rich dataset and analysis capability enables law enforcement to better respond to drone incidents.

“Our goal is to even the playing field. Drones have an amazing capability for good, but also are causing millions of dollars of delays and damages. WhiteFox continues to deliver our life-saving products around the world even during the global pandemic, which has only increased the demands for our products both in austere environments and closer to home with our law enforcement officers on the front lines of this problem,” says WhiteFox CEO Luke Fox.
