Drone Defence Services Ltd (“Drone Defence” or the “Company”), a leading defense and airspace management company, is pleased to announce the rollout of a new drone remote-ID network in Singapore.


The global drone market is predicted to exceed $41.25 billion by 2030 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 22.7%.

More specifically, in Asia Pacific, the drone market was valued in 2020 at $5 billion, with growth between 2021 and 2027 expected to be around 15%.

Drone Defence will prove the technical viability of a wide-area sensor network to effectively detect, identify, and monitor conspicuous drone and their flight behaviors.


This project is being run in conjunction with Metropolitan Wireless International (MWI) in Singapore and began in January 2023.

Over the 24-month implementation plan, fifty AeroSentry Zero remote-ID sensors will be deployed around Singapore, with the project being split into 4 phases.

The pilot phase will involve the installation of 3 drone detection sensors being deployed at several trial sites. Following this, phase 1 will see several sensors deployed across the Southern region, phase 2 focusing on the Northern region, and finally, phase 3 covering the Central region of Singapore.

Richard Gill, Drone Defence CEO, and founder, said: “We’re excited to be taking part in this project in Singapore. The installation of the AeroSentry Zero sensor network is extensive and will provide full coverage of the 720 sq. km city-state to ensure all conspicuous drones are identified and visible via AeroTracker.“

He continues: “This remote-ID network will also provide visibility for Unmanned Aircraft Traffic Management (UTM) systems, offering data and analytics into Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) flight paths, trends and areas to avoid for flight corridors.”

This ground-based infrastructure approach will also be combined with Drone Defence’s unique cloud-based Airspace Monitoring System (AMS), ‘AeroTracker.’ The system provides a user-friendly online interface, displaying conspicuous drones and their locations detected by deployed remote-ID sensors.

Drone Defence’s ‘AeroPing’ will also be used with this project. The FAA-approved real-time drone transponder will be used to ensure the accuracy of the remote-ID sensors.

This project will also allow other individuals and organizations to make use of the sensor remote-ID network.

As well as feeding the sensor data to AeroTracker, the network will also be made available via API, allowing the integration of the same data points into an existing system.

Services such as FoodPanda and their ‘PANDAFLY’ service may then utilize this data for their inter-island food drone deliveries, which are currently under trial.

Richard Gill continues: “This is the kind of network we would like to see in the UK in the future, providing full coverage detection to ensure that all conspicuous drone flights are tracked and monitored.”

The project is set for completion at the end of 2024.
