Battelle's DroneDefender joins forces with Dedrone

Battelle´s DroneDefenderâ„¢ defeats drones. Dedrone´s platform alerts to the presence of rogue and unauthorized drones in protected airspace. The two market-leading companies have announced they have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) which will explore ways to create an end-to-end solution to provide complete airspace security for our country´s most sensitive infrastructure, the companies said.

Battelle´s DroneDefender has piqued the interest of authorities around the world. The technology is restricted to use by federal authorities under a strict permitting process, but sales are taking off with more than 200 units sold to the US Department of Defense, the US Department of Homeland Security, and international customers. Wide adoption around the world has resulted in DroneDefender becoming the most prolific Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) defeat solution.

DroneDefender is the first man-portable, accurate, and easy-to-use system to provide critical security protection. It is an inexpensive, lightweight point-and-shoot system with a demonstrated effectiveness.

The agreement with Dedrone is a non-binding, non-exclusive partnership to collaborate and explore technology synergies. Battelle remains in active discussions with potential customers and companies in the rapidly expanding Counter Unmanned Aircraft System (C-UAS) markets.

Dedrone is the provider of airspace security and developed a drone detection software platform that secures high-value airspace from drone threats.

Dedrone´s proven platform is deployed around the world, protecting military, government, and commercial sites.

Headquartered in San Francisco, Dedrone also has offices in Germany, United Kingdom, and Washington D.C., which focuses on military installations and providing airspace security for US defense programs. See Dedrone´s interface in action here.
