American counter-drone solutions manufacturer DeDrone has unveiled a new portable kit for comprehensive drone detection, tracking, and identification.
Called the DedronePortable, the “all-in-one” kit features sophisticated machine learning technology and high-performance sensors.
The kit includes a power supply, cables, and a ruggedized laptop preloaded with the DedroneTracker.
It can also be combined with DroneDefender to disrupt the radio frequency bands used by enemy drones and deliver disinformation to enemies through deliberate drone spoofing.
According to the company, the portable kit is easy to transport and can be set up in the field in less than 20 minutes.
‘Key Role in Future Operations’
DeDrone pointed out that the use of military drones in global operations has significantly increased, especially as Ukraine continues to prove the effectiveness of unmanned systems in defending against Russian aggression.
Company official Aaditya Devarakonda said that rapidly evolving airspace security concerns have increased the need for sophisticated and easily-transported counter-drone systems.
“With its robust equipment and constant technological updates, DedronePortable is poised to play a key role in current and future operations around the globe,” he stated.
The DeDronePortable anti-drone kit is operational in over 37 countries, including war-torn Ukraine.
A representative of the Ukrainian military revealed that the portable kit has played a significant role in neutralizing the radio frequency signature of Russian Orlan-10 drones.
“We are now setting up a network of sensors to further up-level our capabilities in the conflict zone,” the spokesperson said. “Dedrone has been a great, agile partner to work with in real time.”
