Great news from our portfolio company, Dedrone, as they announce the launch of DedronePortable, an all-in-one kit that offers comprehensive drone detection, tracking, and identification capabilities (DTI) on the go. Already purchased by the Ukrainian military, government agencies, and commercial entities around the world, DedronePortable offers Dedrone’s sophisticated machine learning technology and end-to-end defeat capabilities via a system that can be set up in the field in less than 20 minutes.
Usage of military and commercial drones has become increasingly common in military situations, including in the war in Ukraine, where drones have been used by both sides for reconnaissance, artillery target location and even bombings.
According to Aaditya Devarakonda, CEO of Dedrone, “Rapidly changing airspace security situations require easily-transported and -operational counter-drone systems, and DedronePortable is built to thrive in these hectic and/or temporary environments. With its robust equipment and constant technological updates, DedronePortable is poised to play a key role in current and future operations around the globe.”
A representative of the Ukrainian military commented, “We have been working closely with the Dedrone team and have reverse engineered the RF signature of the Russian Orlan-10 drones. We are now setting up a network of sensors to further up-level our capabilities in the conflict zone,” said a representative of Ukrainian military forces on the front line in eastern Ukraine. “Dedrone has been a great, agile partner to work with in real time.”
