Protecting people, property and information through smart airspace security.
Dedrone is the market leader in airspace security. The Dedrone system combines best-in-class sensors and effectors with cutting edge software to detect, classify, locate and defeat the growing threat posed by unmanned aerial systems.
Dedrone’s drone security system is trusted by critical infrastructure, government operations, military assets, correctional facilities and enterprises to protect against unauthorized drones. With the flexibility to host in the cloud or on-premise, Dedrone’s Airspace Security-as-a-Service (ASaaS) technology combines cutting-edge software with best-in-class sensors and effectors, to provide early warning, classification, location and where authorized, mitigation against unauthorized drone threats.
Dedrone systems are deployed by hundreds of customers globally. Established in 2014, Dedrone is headquartered in San Francisco with operations in the Washington, D.C.-area, Columbus, Ohio, London and Germany.

The first step to build a smart airspace security program with Dedrone and PSA is to confirm there is a drone threat – from there, security teams can use data to determine the second phase of their program, which is to strategically scale their drone detection program.
1. Vulnerability Assessment
The first step in developing an airspace security program is to complete a vulnerability assessment. This review process requires a single detection sensor, which identifies drones up to 5 km in any direction. This sensor comes with its own built-in cloud connectivity to make installation easy. A typical data collection and airspace assessment lasts 12 weeks, to allow the sensors to establish patterns in airspace activity.
The system alerts whenever a drone enters the protected space, and automated reporting allows users to access historical data on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. Dedrone’s reporting tools identify concerning patterns, such as an unusually high amount of detections, specific times of day seeing more activity than others, and security managers can build a picture to understand the threat.
2. Situational Awareness
For sites that identify unauthorized drone activity, the next step would establish complete situational awareness including location and flight paths of drones by layering additional sensors. Now security teams can establish flight paths and use this information to track down pilots and provide this evidence to law enforcement for further investigation.
With situational awareness, security teams can make informed, evidence-backed decisions on how to address their airspace risks.

There have been many news stories about drones entering airport airspace around the world and disrupting operations. The challenge of drones at airports is complex and unique and will continually evolve as more drones come to market and regulations advance. Drone disruptions at airports endanger passengers and delay flights at great costs. Dedrone’s airspace security programs provide airports with the flexibility to quickly begin their airspace assessment and then scale to meet the threat.
Correctional facilities face a persistent, escalating threat: contraband delivery by drones. These small unmanned aerial vehicles can easily bypass the most sophisticated security installations by simply flying over the top into a facility. The Dedrone solution enables correctional security teams to identify drones before they enter a facility, launch a targeted search for the pilot and contraband, capture and record evidence.
Critical infrastructure sites such as refineries, nuclear plants, ports, and utilities have the highest safety standards, preventing hostile surveillance, theft, and physical property damage. Small drones pose many threats to critical infrastructure, and safety standards must extend to the airspace. Dedrone’s airspace security technology provides systematic detection of unauthorized drones and delivers an extensive evaluation of all drone activities, forming the basis for mitigation against any drone threats.
Enterprises & Data Centers
Drones threaten the physical security of data centers and their IT/cybersecurity. They are small, quiet and are capable of carrying heavy payloads over fences and right next to structures—including devices to sniff networks, intercept data, disrupt communications or even hack into servers.
Government & Defense
Militaries across the world continue to invest in drone technology to survey and conduct strategic offensive measures to protect and defend. The same technology is accessible and being used by politically-motivated terror groups aimed to cause harm to innocent civilians. Because of this, government agencies are turning to drone detection to not only track their own drone traffic but also identify when an unauthorized drone has entered their airspace.
Rogue drones have no place at stadiums. Drones are not only being used for espionage against practicing teams, but there are countless reports of drones crashing into stands, delaying gameplay, and interfering with broadcasting. In a world where drones have become the new norm, counter-drone technology will have to take center field to ensure the protection of stadium employees, fans and property. Every stadium and arena can immediately benefit from understanding their airspace vulnerability against unwanted drones.
