Dedrone recently deployed its drone-defense technology at the 47th annual meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
From Jan. 17-20, police in the canton of Graubünden, where the forum was held, used Dedrone’s DroneTracker system to monitor critical airspace above the area of operations in real time.
“The risks for high-profile events such as the World Economic Forum are many and varied,” says Jörg Lamprecht, CEO of Dedrone. “Organizers must be prepared against all dangers – even against drone attacks. With our technology, the organizer was able to ensure that security plans were up to date to defend against this new threat.”
DroneTracker warns users immediately of any intrusive unmanned objects in the air. It is suited to protect data centers, stadiums, prisons, airports and other critical infrastructure. Depending on the requirements, any number of sensors can be integrated into DroneTracker, and countermeasures such as jamming transmitters can be activated automatically.
Dedrone is headquartered in San Francisco, and its development and production facility is located in Kassel, Germany. The company recently secured seven-figure funding from Silicon Valley investors.
