Dedrone’s Counter-UAS Platforms Win SAFETY Act Designation

Two counter-unmanned aerial system platforms of Sterling, Virginia-based airspace security company Dedrone have met the standards of the Support Anti-Terrorism by Fostering Effective Technologies Act of 2002

According to Dedrone, it is the first counter-drone company to receive the designation from the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of SAFETY Act Implementation. Its DHS-approved anti-terrorism technologies are DedroneTracker .AI, a command-and-control solution, and the DedroneSensor, a radio frequency detector, which both gained approval with Petrone Risk as adviser, Dedrone said Tuesday.

Aaditya Devarakonda, Dedrone CEO, viewed the designation award as a validation of the company’s ongoing efforts to provide technology effective for both civilian and military use against hostile drones.

The company’s artificial intelligence-powered DedroneTracker underwent testing at the Atlantic City International Airport in 2023 and was subsequently integrated by the Federal Aviation Administration in an unnamed second airport. The FAA has also initiated the testing and airport introduction of Dedrone’s other technologies such as the narrow-band jammer DedroneDefender.

Dedrone’s counter-UAS solutions are available to the public sector through Carahsoft Technology and contracts from the Illinois Learning Technology Purchase Program and the New Jersey School Boards Association.

Dedrone was among the 50 private companies cited in the 2023 CNBC Disruptors for their innovation and growth initiatives.
