Dedrone tech secures UK infrastructure approval

Dedrone Counter-Drone Technology

Dedrone has been awarded certification from the UK’s Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI).

It received that award for its counter-drone DroneTracker platform which detects, tracks, and identifies drones by using multi-sensor capability combining RF, radar, and optical sensors.

The new CPNI drone detection standard is the first official validation of counter-drone technology.

It enables organisations deemed to be of critical national importance to adopt drone detection technology with the assurance that it has been tested rigorously.

Amit Samani, Dedrone’s regional sales manager for the UK, said: “Any organisation needing drone detection technology should consider platforms evaluated and tested by CPNI.”

Adding: “Dedrone’s DroneTracker platform has successfully met CPNI’s rigorous testing standards, and this certification provides further assurances to our customers and partners that our system meets the security needs of the UK’s most sensitive infrastructures. We will continue working closely with government sector users, risk-critical sites, and major corporate customers to provide the most robust available airspace security and defence against drones and multiple drones.”

  1. Absolutely! Congrats to Dedrone for their commendable achievements. It is such a shame however that the word drone always seems to be associated with something potentially bad. After all, model helicopters or balloons are equally able to be used to commit nefarious acts. I’ve no doubt that the technology employed by Dedrone (et al) will identify other such craft. Isn’t Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) a much more representative description?
