Counter drone company Dedrone has announced a partnership with Swiss telecoms provider Swisscom to protect people, property and information from the threat of unauthorised drones.
As part of this cooperation, the Swiss company will implement Dedrone’s counter-drone solution for its projects. Together, Dedrone and Swisscom Broadcast plan to protect critical infrastructure facilities, airports, and events, as well as companies in the pharmaceutical and watchmaking industries. Additionally, the solution will enable law enforcement agencies to ensure public safety in their regions.
Swisscom customers protecting critical sites can now expand security protection into their airspace through Dedrone’s drone detection and threat mitigation solution. Drones are rapidly increasing in numbers from delivery to inspection; however, as more drones become useful, the threat of uncooperative or malicious drones increases. Swisscom and Dedrone now offer an airspace security solution extending security beyond the height of any fence at critical sites and across cities, allowing security providers to differentiate between cooperative drones and unauthorized or nefarious drones.
“Dedrone’s Smart airspace security solution is the foundation for Swisscom Broadcast customers to protect their airspace from unauthorized drones,” said Danny Schmid, Drone and Drone Security Leader for Swisscom Broadcast. “We have already successfully implemented our first joint projects.”
Dedrone technology detects, identifies, locates, and mitigates drone threats enabling Swisscom Broadcast customers to now protect their airspace. Swisscom supports its customers through every step of the Dedrone implementation – from the basic module for detecting drones to integration with drone defence systems. The Dedrone and Swisscom drone defence system meets the requirements of the German and the Swiss U-Space platform.
