Airspace security technology leader Dedrone has been awarded certification from the U.K. Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI) for its counter-drone technology platform DedroneTracker™ for the second time, following Dedrone’s successful certification in 2019. DedroneTracker detects, identifies, and locates drones by using multi-sensor capability combining radio frequency, radar, and optical sensors. The CPNI counter-drone standard enables organizations deemed to be of critical national importance, including refineries, data centers, airports, and ports, to adopt drone detection technology with the assurance that it has been tested rigorously.
Dedrone’s continued participation and certification with CPNI reflects Dedrone’s efficacy and performance in detecting, tracking, and identifying different drone types for its customers. Dedrone technology was evaluated to detect drones within a specific launch time, consistent and reliable tracking, timely alerts, and notifications, with DedroneTracker software showing reliable information on drone heights, speeds, and ranges.
“Dedrone is pleased to report that DedroneTracker platform has successfully met CPNI’s rigorous testing standards for the second time in row,” shares Amit Samani, Vice President of Enterprise Sales, Americas & UK at Dedrone. “The challenge of unwanted drones at critical infrastructure sites is complex and unique and will continually evolve as more drones come to market and as drone regulations and laws advance. CPNI has set the standard for global counter-drone technology testing, and any organization protecting against drone threats can take comfort in knowing that Dedrone’s technology has successfully been evaluated, tested, and proven to deliver smart airspace security.”
DedroneTracker 4.5 automatically synthesizes sensor data and provides immediate alerts of unauthorized drone activity, enabling security providers to safeguard their premises. Dedrone’s software and radio frequency sensors provide detection, identification, and drone flightpaths. Additional, third-party sensors may be added to the Dedrone system, including Pan-Tilt-Zoom cameras and radar systems providing additional layers of drone information, enabling the user to visually verify the drone and its payload.
