sUAS Detection & Mitigation Solution for US Federal Agencies

By Phoebe Grinter / 08 Nov 2021

Dedrone has added its ninth U.S. federal customer, with three new federal agencies joining in September 2021. The company’s smart airspace security protects physical assets, people, and information from small Unmanned Aerial System (sUAS) attacks and intelligence gathering.

Dedrone is deployed by U.S. government agencies both within the continental U.S. and abroad, providing best-in-class detection, tracking, identification, and mitigation of sUAS. Dedrone’s Command and Control (C2) platform, DedroneTracker, is built on an Open Systems Architecture (OSA), allowing for easy integration to any third-party sensor, stovepipe counter sUAS capability, mitigation solution, and common Department of Defense’s (DoD) C2 systems.

Enabling a layered approach, Dedrone intelligently fuses sensor data from various sensors including radio frequency, camera, acoustics, and radar, leveraging artificial intelligence / machine learning capabilities and its proprietary sUAS signature database, DedroneDNA, to accurately detect and track drones while virtually eliminating false positives.

“Small and mid-sized drones are accessible, quick to deploy, and thus an easy vector for nefarious activity including hostile surveillance, weapons delivery and even detonation,” said Aaditya Devarakonda, CEO of Dedrone. “We feel privileged and honored to be working every day with nine U.S. government agencies, to prevent such an event from happening.”

In September 2020, Dedrone announced a strategic partnership with General Dynamics Mission Systems, with the objective of equipping the DoD with complete drone detection and mitigation solutions. In 2021, the companies released the Counter-Unmanned Aerial System Expeditionary Kit, allowing users to rapidly set up counter sUAS detection to assess drone threats within an Area of Responsibility (AOR) in less than thirty minutes with no tools required.

“With nine U.S. federal government agencies entrusting Dedrone with their airspace security, Dedrone remains at the forefront of understanding emerging sUAS threats in the continental U.S. and abroad,” said Robert Campbell, Vice President of Public Sector at Dedrone. “Dedrone’s Open Systems Architecture and use of artificial intelligence / machine learning sUAS identification allows U.S. federal government customers to rapidly integrate mission-specific detection and mitigation capabilities.”

Dedrone is used by four of the G-7 nation governments and is an active and regular participant in U.S. federally sponsored events, including the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Air Domain Awareness testing events, advancing airspace security offerings alongside DHS Science and Technology Directorate.
