DedroneOnTheMove, which integrates advanced sensor-fusion and mitigation technologies, was showcased at Eurosatory 2024 and has been designed for deployment to enhance airspace security in high-risk environments.

Virginia-based airspace security technology manufacturer Dedrone has presented DedroneOnTheMove (DedroneOTM) for the first time which offers what it has called the “complete CUAS DTI-M kill chain”.

Speaking to Shephard during Eurosatory last week, the company said that the Paris expo was the first time its new airspace security solution for counter uncrewed aerial systems (CUAS) has been displayed to the public.

The DedroneOTM solution includes the DedroneTracker.AI sensor-fusion platform, Dedrone passive RF detection sensors, a DedroneDefender handheld smart jammer, a ruggedised on-vehicle computer tablet, an optional MIL-STD-1275 compatible vehicle power supply and an optional telescopic mast.

As previously noted by Shephard, the system has access to the DedroneDNA library with more than 200 drone protocols, while DedroneTracker.AI allows for 360-degree drone detection “on any moving vehicle”.

The new solution offers the operator detection, tracking, identification and mitigation (DTI-M), by leveraging DedroneSensors combined with mitigation from Dedrone’s smart handheld jammer, the DedroneDefender. The goal has been to deliver what it termed as “a complete [CUAS] DTI-M kill chain”.

The vehicle-mounted solution has been designed for expeditionary forces deployed in volatile or high-risk environments.

Dedrone told Shephard that “for security reasons” it was unable to disclose current customers using DedroneOTM, but that case studies would be made available “in the near future”, and that the solution had been displayed on several vehicles around the exhibition floor at Eurosatory 2024.

DedroneOTM is compatible with any vehicle in the field, according to its manufacturer. The company recently agreed a new partnership with UK defence manufacturer Supacat “which will enable all variants in Supacat’s High Mobility Transporter (HMT) family of vehicles to be equipped with DedroneOTM as a standard modular feature”. Shephard was told that production of the HMTs with an added DedroneOTM had already started.

The HMT vehicles are developed in 4x4, 6x6 and convertible Extenda configurations. The HMT vehicles have a “reputation as formidable off-road vehicles”, with “close to 1,000 [platforms] in service worldwide”, according to Supacat.
