Drone detection specialist Dedrone has partnered with communications company BlackBerry to deliver advanced counter drone technology. As part of this embedded technology partnership Dedrone is integrating BlackBerry AtHoc software into its products to enable real-time secure alerts when a malicious or unauthorized drone is detected in an airspace.
Working with the BlackBerry AtHoc API, Dedrone has integrated directly to BlackBerry AtHoc’s alerting functionality. This allows the creation of automated, targeted alerts based on a range of criteria, including flight zones, drone behavior, and user groups – for a more efficient, focused response to the presence of an unauthorized drone.
The Dedrone technology portfolio combines machine-learning software with hardware sensors, electronic attack methods like smart jamming, and defeat weapons to provide early warning, classification of, and mitigation against drone threats.
“New advanced technologies have the potential to solve some of today’s most pressing challenges, however, they also introduce new security risks,” said Christoph Erdmann, Senior Vice President of Secure Communications, BlackBerry. “Drones are one of the many IoT endpoints that add to the growing chaos that security leaders must navigate. We’re excited to partner with Dedrone to offer a critical solution that organizations around the world can use to keep citizens and the public safe.”
