Battelle, Dedrone partner for counter UAS system

30th August 2017 - 12:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Battelle and Dedrone have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to combine their counter-UAS technologies into a single end-to-end solution to keep airspace around critical infrastructure secure.

Battelle’s DroneDefender system is a directed-energy UAS countermeasure designed to disrupt the control of the UAS flying in restricted airspace, neutralising it so that no remote action can occur.

Dedrone’s man-portable, lightweight point-and-shoot platform alerts users to the presence of rogue and unauthorised drones in protected airspace. Its machine-learning software platform analyses data from passive sensors to identify the characteristics of the UAS, providing warning of its presence and mapping the flightpath.

Under the MoU, the companies will explore synergies between their products to develop comprehensive solutions for C-UAS operations.

Joerg Lamprecht, CEO and co-founder of Dedrone, said: ‘The Department of Defense must prepare for a vast spectrum of airspace threats, including drones and other UAS. With their best in class defeat technology, Battelle is an ideal partner to our detection programme, and together we look forward to developing proactive solutions that protect military and government airspace.’
