Dedrone, a leading provider of intelligent airspace security solutions, has been included in the prestigious 2023 CNBC Disruptor 50 list, recognizing innovative private companies disrupting the economy and pushing established corporations to rethink their business models.
Throughout 2022, Dedrone has solidified its position as a frontrunner in the counter-drone sector through a series of notable achievements. These include the launch of three new products – DedroneRapidResponse, DedronePortable, and DedroneDefender, securing a $30 million Series C-1 funding round amidst economic uncertainties in July 2022, and providing support to the Ukrainian military with DedronePortable and DedroneDefender, facilitating the detection and mitigation of drone threats for soldiers.
“We are honored by CNBC’s recognition of our growth and our leadership in this new era of global security and public safety,” said Aaditya Devarakonda, CEO of Dedrone. “We offer the most advanced end-to-end counterdrone solution to security professionals, public safety, and military professionals around the world, powered by our sophisticated AI/ML and sensor-fusion capabilities, which has resulted in the largest install base among companies in our industry. It is wonderful to be recognized for our technological advances and we offer our congratulations to the other honorees.”
The selection process for the CNBC Disruptor 50 list is based on a unique methodology that considers both quantitative and qualitative factors. The list includes previous recipients such as Zipline, Arctic Wolf, and Brex.
Now in its 11th year, the list was designed to showcase the most innovative venture-backed companies that are using breakthrough technology to meet rising consumer and economic challenges. Nominees undergo rigorous scrutiny including measurements such as scalability, revenue and user growth, and workforce diversity.
The list was released today across CNBC’s TV and digital platforms. In identifying fast-growing companies on the path to being the next generation of companies, CNBC said that this year’s Disruptor 50 list “could be the most consequential yet.”
At the heart of Dedrone’s end-to-end counterdrone solution is DedroneTracker, its command-and-control (C2) platform. Utilizing proprietary algorithms and AI techniques, Dedrone is revolutionizing the way security professionals approach drone defense through our advanced AI-driven autonomous C2 platform. Dedrone has gone beyond the limits of simple sensor correlation to incorporate advanced algorithms and machine learning techniques, such as behavior model filters, neural networks, and AI-based imagery with over 18 million images. By leveraging these sophisticated methods, Dedrone has virtually eliminated the issue of false positives in its drone detection system, providing unmatched accuracy and reliability. Dedrone’s cutting-edge platform and continuous commitment to innovation is revolutionizing lower airspace security.
Dedrone has recently launched a new product called Dedrone City-Wide Drone Detection, which is capable of protecting 50% of the US population, as well as other cities around the world.
