Concept: California startup Dedrone has introduced DedroneRapidResponse, a portable unmanned aerial vehicle detection unit that can be deployed instantly to continuously check airspace and ensure uninterrupted air safety. He claims to be able to detect, identify, locate and analyze about 300 different types of drones.
The nature of the failure: DedroneRapidResponse uses cloud software to localize the drone, delivering information about its cargo and pilot location after the drone is turned on. As a result, security forces can have a great advantage over a pilot who is preparing to fly into a no-fly zone. The startup boasts that the tower can be installed in less than 30 minutes and has a detection range of 5 km thanks to a multi-layered system with two cameras that can track multiple drones simultaneously. Dedrone can also connect multiple trailers to provide optimal protection for drones for large public safety activities. Dedrone technology based on artificial intelligence is available as a transport platform in combination with a tower height of 9-15 m, which can be easily transported and maneuvered on a trailer on an SUV (sports SUV) or truck.
Outlook: Dedrone intends to use the DedroneRapidResponse system in scenarios where multi-layered, flexible, and adaptive drone detection is required, such as special events or other large outdoor gatherings. It offers a multi-level mobile security solution that allows you to quickly address the airspace security requirements of a city, agency or company, ensuring the safety of people, property and information from drone threats. The solution can also be used to protect public safety at major events such as sporting events, mass gatherings, crime scenes, parades, police activities and concerts. In December 2021, Axon led a round of C-Series funding of $ 30.5 million for the startup. The Dedrone solution is said to be used by the governments of four G-7 countries, nine U.S. federal agencies, including the Department of Defense, as well as more than 65 critical infrastructure locations, 20 airports, 50 correctional facilities and 10 Fortune 500 corporations.
