Dedrone launches DedronePortable for military and commercial entities around the world
Dedrone, the market leader in smart airspace security, today announced the launch of DedronePortable, an all-in-one kit that offers comprehensive drone detection, tracking, and identification capabilities (DTI) on the go. In use by multiple militaries, government agencies, and commercial entities around the world, DedronePortable offers Dedrone’s sophisticated machine learning technology and end-to-end defeat capabilities via a system that can be set up in the field in less than 20 minutes.
DedronePortable can be combined with DroneDefender to not only DTI enemy/unauthorized drones but also deny and disrupt the RF bands used by most commercial and military drones, and across the GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo, SBAS, and QZSS geo-location bands. These capabilities ensure that even military or homemade RC controllers, along with commercially available drones, can be detected and mitigated. Additionally, DedronePortable can be equipped with the ability to deliver disinformation to the enemy through deliberate drone spoofing capability if required for combat situations.
“Rapidly changing airspace security situations require easily-transported and -operational counter-drone systems, and DedronePortable is built to thrive in these hectic and/or temporary environments,” said Aaditya Devarakonda, CEO of Dedrone. “With its robust equipment and constant technological updates, DedronePortable is poised to play a key role in current and future operations around the globe.”
All key components required for drone detection are included in DedronePortable, which can be easily transported from location to location. All required equipment including sensors, power supply, cables, a ruggedized laptop pre-loaded with the DedroneTracker and the drone identification database DedroneDNA, and more come pre-packaged in easy to transport and assemble kits.
Usage of military and commercial drones has become increasingly common in military situations, including in the war in Ukraine, where drones have been used by both sides for reconnaissance, artillery target location and even bombings.
“We have been working closely with the Dedrone team and have reverse engineered the RF signature of the Russian Orlan-10 drones. We are now setting up a network of sensors to further up-level our capabilities in the conflict zone,” said a representative of Ukrainian military forces on the front line in eastern Ukraine. “Dedrone has been a great, agile partner to work with in real-time.”
Dedrone is increasing access to mobile, agile counter-drone solutions. Earlier this year, the company launched DedroneRapidResponse, which can be deployed quickly to ensure uninterrupted airspace protection of outdoor events within a five-kilometer radius. Dedrone works across 37 countries, including four of the G-7 nation governments; nine U.S. federal agencies, including the Department of Defense; more than 75 critical infrastructure sites; 20+ airports; and 50 correctional facilities worldwide. The company actively provides counter-drone services for some of the most high-profile events around the world and works closely with more than 35 law enforcement agencies.
