Battelle-Dedrone Partnership Aims to Combine UAS Detection and Defeat Platforms

Battelle and Dedrone have agreed to explore methods for the development of an airspace security platform that will combine unmanned aerial system detection and defeat technologies.

The non-binding, non-exclusive partnership aims to build an integrated technology offering that will work to help protect sensitive infrastructure in the U.S. from drone threats, Battelle said Thursday.

San Francisco-based Dedrone has developed machine-learning software designed to recognize the characteristics of a drone through sensor data analysis as well as map a drone’s flight path and deliver warning of rogue drone presence.

Battelle created a man-portable counter-UAS system called DroneDefender to offer security protection for various federal government clients such the departments of Defense and Homeland Security.

Joerg Lamprecht, CEO and co-founder of Dedrone, said the alliance seeks to help secure government and military airspace with an integrated drone defeat and detection platform.
