Airspace security technology solutions provider, Dedrone has been awarded certification from the U.K. Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI) for its counter-drone technology platform, DedroneTracker for the second time, following Dedrone’s successful certification in 2019. DedroneTracker DedroneTracker detects, identifies, and locates drones by using multi-sensor capability combining radio frequency, radar, and optical sensors. The CPNI counter-drone standard enables organizations deemed to be of critical national importance, including refineries, data centers, airports, and ports, to adopt drone detection technology with the assurance that it has been tested rigorously. Dedrone’s continued participation and certification with CPNI reflects Dedrone’s efficacy and performance in detecting, tracking, and identifying different drone types for its customers. Dedrone technology Dedrone technology was evaluated to detect drones within a specific launch time Dedrone technology was evaluated to detect drones within a specific launch time, consistent and reliable tracking, timely alerts, and notifications, with DedroneTracker software showing reliable information on drone heights, speeds, and ranges. “Dedrone is pleased to report that DedroneTracker platform has successfully met CPNI’s rigorous testing standards for the second time in row,” shares Amit Samani, Vice President of Enterprise Sales, Americas & UK at Dedrone. Standard for global counter-drone technology testing He adds, “The challenge of unwanted drones at critical infrastructure sites is complex and unique, and will continually evolve as more drones come to market and as drone regulations and laws advance.” Amit Samani further stated, “CPNI has set the standard for global counter-drone technology testing, and any organization protecting against drone threats can take comfort in knowing that Dedrone’s technology has successfully been evaluated, tested, and proven to deliver smart airspace security.” Software and radio frequency sensors DedroneTracker 4.5 automatically synthesizes sensor data and provides immediate alerts of unauthorized drone activity, enabling security providers to safeguard their premises. Dedrone’s software and radio frequency sensors provide detection, identification, and drone flight paths. Additionally, third-party sensors may be added to the Dedrone system, including Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) cameras and radar systems, providing additional layers of drone information, enabling the user to visually verify the drone and its payload.
Airspace security technology pioneer Dedrone has been awarded certification from the UK’s Center for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI) for its counter-drone technology platform DroneTracker. DroneTracker detects, tracks, and identifies drones by using multi-sensor capability combining RF, radar, and optical sensors. The new CPNI drone detection standard is the first official validation of counter-drone technology. It enables organizations deemed to be of critical national importance to adopt drone detection technology with the assurance that it has been tested rigorously. Robust available airspace security “Any organization needing drone detection technology should consider platforms evaluated and tested by CPNI,” says Amit Samani, Dedrone’s regional sales manager for the UK. “Dedrone’s DroneTracker platform has successfully met CPNI’s rigorous testing standards, and this certification provides further assurances to our customers and partners that our system meets the security needs of the UK’s most sensitive infrastructures.” We will continue working closely with government sector users, risk-critical sites, and major corporate customers" “We will continue working closely with government sector users, risk-critical sites, and major corporate customers to provide the most robust available airspace security and defense against drones and multiple drones.” Dedrone’s multi-sensor system enables security providers to match the best-in-class sUAS (small Unmanned Aerial Systems) detection hardware with DroneTracker, Dedrone’s software. Customized airspace security solutions Radio frequency sensors, including the RF-100 and RF-300, provide flightpath, localization, and classification of sUAS. A PTZ camera system adds localization information via optical and thermal detection, while a 3D radar system adds altitude data and detection of autonomous drones. Hardware data was analyzed by DroneTracker 4.1, which provides a near-instantaneous decision regarding whether a drone is a threat, and allows security personnel to respond accordingly. Dedrone creates customized airspace security solutions allowing organizations to identify, track, and eliminate sUAS threats. Dedrone’s solution is deployed to customers around the world, including three of the G7 countries, correctional facilities, utilities, airports, and corporations, among other public and private organizations.
