Drone detection and anti-drone technology is a significant part of the drone industry – and one that can support the commercial drone industry by reducing security fears. Dedrone, the leading drone detection platform, issued a new release today focused on drone swarms.
DroneTracker 3.5 is designed to detect and track all of the drones over a protected site – including an “orchestrated drone incursion,” says a company announcement.
Drone swarms, or more than three drones in a single area, have been demonstrated in action in modern military settings for surveillance and delivery. Pilots who operate more than one drone at a time can expand their reach and impact to an area, whether to support disaster response and recovery, drop contraband at a correctional facility, distract law enforcement from their operations, or threaten the security of a military base.
“Security professionals are now looking beyond the single drone threat and understanding that drone pilots with intent to harm can easily coordinate efforts and use multiple drones at once to covertly spy or interrupt critical operations,” shares Joerg Lamprecht, CEO and co-founder of Dedrone. “DroneTracker 3.5 provides forensic data of drone activity that can be used to secure protected assets, people, and infrastructure from unwanted drones.”
The video below shows DroneTracker 3.5 at work – tracking each drone individually from a mile away, and identifying the location of the pilot.
