World Wide Technology is adding airspace security to its portfolio through a new alliance with Dedrone, a company that develops drone detection technology.
WWT, a technology solution provider and integrator based in St. Louis, said it will provide Dedrone's product to bolster customers' physical and cybersecurity initiatives. In addition, WWT will include Dedrone's drone detection platform in its Advanced Technology Center, a technology design and demonstration facility.
Dedrone's DroneTracker platform detects an approaching drone through an RF sensor and other means, classifies the type of drone via pattern recognition technology and issues an alert. Pablo Estrada, vice president of marketing at Dedrone, said market segments in which WWT could deploy Dedrone's product include data center protection, physical security, event security and intellectual property protection.
