DroneTracker 4 enables security providers to utilize detection data for counterdrone programs

SAN FRANCISCO, April. 4, 2019 - Dedrone, the market and technology leader in airspace security, today announced the launch of DroneTracker 4, which detects, localizes, and tracks simultaneous drones to protect against advanced drone threats. DroneTracker 4 software uses Dedrone’s DroneDNA database to recognize and classify RF, WiFi, and autonomous drones approximately one kilometer away from a protected site.

DroneTracker 4 brings significant enhancements for customers including:

  • Drone Flight Pattern Recognition: New airspace analytics tools uncover patterns in drone activity in the airspace, enabling users to better understand the intention of the drone flight and the potential impacts of the incursion
  • Heatmaps: Visual cues provide DroneTracker users with a quick overview of unauthorized drone activity in a broad area and indicate locations of interest and hot spots to investigate further or invest additional resources
  • Scheduled Reports: Regular, automated reporting proactively provides stakeholders with a modernized framework to compare data and assess their airspace activity patterns

Together, these updates and advancements make the Dedrone solution the most detailed and actionable counterdrone platform for security professionals to understand drone activity and protect critical assets.

“The Dedrone platform enables all security providers to accurately and quickly assess their airspace threats, and make decisions on how to react to drone intrusions,” shares Joerg Lamprecht, CEO and co-founder of Dedrone. “We developed DroneTracker 4 for our customers to maximize how they interact with detection data and help them create intelligent airspace security protocols. DroneTracker 4 helps security providers understand what the drone pilots are after and take strategic precautions to protect their operations.”

Dedrone’s software is a machine learning network using information from a proprietary database, DroneDNA. DroneTracker gathers intelligence from various sensors, including radio frequency and Wi-Fi scanners, microphones, and cameras, DroneTracker 4 can detect drones over a mile away from a protected site and determines the communications protocol of the drone and its flight path. Once a drone is detected, the software alerts security personnel and can be integrated to deploy a passive security measure or defeat technology.
