We are overjoyed to share and celebrate an outstanding achievement by our portfolio company, Dedrone. Their unwavering dedication to innovation and excellence has once again been recognised on a global stage.
Dedrone’s City-Wide Drone Detection has been named one of TIME’s Best Inventions of 2023 in the AI category. This prestigious recognition underlines the company’s commitment to harnessing the power of AI to safeguard our skies from unauthorised drones.
Aaditya Devarakonda, CEO of Dedrone, commented on the news saying, “Drone security is no longer nice-to-have; it’s something that every city around the world needs to keep citizens safe. This TIME Best Inventions award builds on our CNBC Disruptor 50 win earlier this year and is yet another acknowledgement of the serious problem that Dedrone is solving on a global scale. Be it battlefields, the war on drugs, border security or public safety of our critical infrastructure and cities, we protect our customers against nefarious drones while providing air domain situational awareness across 50+ cities across the world. We are leveraging AI/ML to enable the good drones to fly to while protecting against the malicious ones. “I thank all the hard work from Dedrone employees and offer our congratulations to the other honorees.”
DedroneCityWide provides Drone Detection-as-a-Service and has expanded to over 50 cities in the US and abroad. It is now able to protect over 50% of the US population from the threat of drones including coverage of the three largest cities in the US (New York City, Los Angeles and Chicago). The solution is entirely cloud-based, available on the web and via the App Store and Google Play for monitoring and alerts in both a central command center as well as for patrolling security. DedroneCityWide monitors multiple drones and geographical areas at once, using a streamlined alerting system that triggers a notification with both drone data as well as the pilot’s location, the moment an alert zone is breached.
