Dedrone, a new competitor in the 2019 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program, is pleased to announce the company’s DroneTracker, has been selected as a Finalist in the 2019 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program.
For many organizations, from corporations, utilities, correctional facilities or military installations, any unauthorized UAS is a threat, whether it’s a hobby pilot unknowingly causing a nuisance, or a UAS conducting hostile surveillance or dropping a payload.
Modern security requires a layered approach that keeps up with the evolution of UAS technology.
The foundation of any counter-UAS program is to identify the aircraft and understand your lower airspace activity.
The Dedrone platform is a fully automatic counter-drone solution, and uniquely designed to detect, classify, and mitigate drone-based threats.
Its optimized hardware can be mounted to on rooftops or poles, and identifies approaching drones by means of visual, acoustic, and frequency sensors.
Noise, movement pattern, silhouette, as well as RF and Wi-Fi signals are processed and evaluated with the intelligent DroneTracker software.
DroneTracker’s correlation and analysis of this information reliably classifies approaching drones, and triggers alarms to alert security staff.
Third-party sensors, such as surveillance cameras, radar, jammers or other countermeasures, can be then be integrated.
(Kentucky Department of Corrections is getting ahead of drone threats, including contraband delivery and spying, with Dedrone technology. “The presence of a drone and any kind of disturbance resulting from that is a major threat not only to the safety of the staff that work in the facility but also to the offender population that live in the facility,” shares Coleman Morrell, a leader in the Emergency Management team at Kentucky DOC.

Dedrone has participated and succeeded in multiple DoD-organized rapid prototyping and testing events, including DoD’s Black Dart, the U.S. Air Force’s FCE, DHS’s TACTIC, USMC’s ANTX and ThunderDrone.
At ThunderDrone, Team Dedrone was selected as the top counter-Unmanned Aircraft System (CUAS) solution out of 93 other participating vendors.
Counter-UAS solutions must be flexible to meet the specific area and mitigate threats, and Dedrone meets the critical requirements as designated by the DoD, Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and other federal agencies.
Each counter-UAS system must be able to integrate the best in class technologies for each individual installation, which requires an open-system software architecture.
Their open API allows for each customer to customize their solution to meet their unique needs and environment, and Dedrone provides the best in class options for each individual site and problem set.

Drones are here to stay, and Dedrone is a market-leading counter-drone technology platform, supporting organizations around the world to detect drones and protect their assets against drone threats.
New DroneTracker 4.1
DroneTracker 4.1 enables Dedrone customers to integrate the latest and most advanced radar and cameras, providing additional layers of proactive detection of all sUAS, including those that fly autonomously.
Dedrone’s DroneTracker 4.1 software software program collects data from hardware inputs, including Dedrone’s radio frequency sensors, the RF-100 and RF-300, PTZ cameras, radar, and acoustic sensors, to determine information such as the drone manufacturer, model, time and length of drone activity.
Upon identification of an sUAS, DroneTracker 4.1 triggers alerts and countermeasures.
Summary reports are produced and available on-demand for easy analysis and actionable data for security teams to address and combat unwanted sUAS in protected airspace.

DroneTracker 4.1 provides critical updates to core platform components and new features, which includes:
Advanced Radar and PTZ Camera Integration:
- DroneTracker 4.1 has expanded its compatibility to more radar sensors,for organizations to extend their detection range and detect all kinds of sUAS,including autonomous drones.
- DroneTracker 4.1 features an intelligent sensor fusion technology which enables PTZ cameras to automatically verify radar detection data.
- Supporting the latest advancements in radar and PTZ technology, DroneTracker 4.1 now provides accurate visual verification of sUAS in low-light environments through thermal and infrared detection.
New Classification Options for Organizations with Active sUAS Programs:
- As more organizations bring sUAS to work,DroneTracker 4.1 now enables security providers to focus on only those alerts that need to be intervened.
- New classifications include “friend” for sUAS that are recognized or a part of an organization’s sUAS program, “foe” for any unwanted or uncooperative sUAS, and “ignore” to shut off any alerts that may not need further investigation.
Upgraded User Experience for Coordinated Incident Response:
- The re-designed and enhanced home screen improves user experience to ensure a rapid and coordinated incident response.
- DroneTracker 4.1’s improved drone path accuracy during the alert enables security teams to deploy appropriate, timely and effective countermeasures.
Continuous Upgrades to Proprietary sUAS Signature Database, DroneDNA:
- Detection accuracy of sensors relies on known drone signatures in DroneTracker’s proprietary database, DroneDNA.
- DroneDNA provides specific information on the exact type of drone, helping immensely to reduce the false-positive and false-negative detection rate.
- DroneTracker 4.1 comes with the most DroneDNA updates of any software upgrade, and now provides users with automated monthly updates of DroneDNA.
“When it comes to protecting critical infrastructure, all uncooperative sUAS must be detected and tracked before they breach protected airspace,” explains Joerg Lamprecht, CEO, and co-founder of Dedrone.
“All counter-drone technology programs must be customized to the threat profile, environment, and needs of an individual site.”
“DroneTracker 4.1 enables security teams to select the best-in-class sensor hardware to assess and understand their airspace activity accurately, while providing users with a user experience that will enable team members to access critical information and act upon it before,during and after a drone incursion.”
(Hear directly from Joerg Lamprecht, CEO and co-founder of Dedrone as he explains the company’s market-leading technology for detecting and countering malicious drones. Dedrone integrates its own sensors and sensors from leading manufacturers into a highly efficient detection network: RF sensors, PTZ cameras, radar systems. If a drone is detected and located, defensive measures, such as jamming, can be activated if the organization has authorization.

Dedrone creates customized airspace security solutions for 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.
