Battelle and Dedrone have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) which will explore ways to create an end-to-end solution to provide complete airspace security. More than 200 units of Battelle’s DroneDefender have been sold to the U.S. Department of Defense, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and international customers. Dedrone has developed a drone detection software platform that secures high-value airspace from drone threats; the machine-learning software platform analyzes data from passive sensors to identify the characteristics of each drone, provide warning of their presence and map the flightpath.
The agreement with Dedrone is a non-binding, non-exclusive partnership to collaborate and explore technology synergies. Battelle remains in active discussions with potential customers and companies in the rapidly expanding counter unmanned aircraft system (C-UAS) markets.
