Small domestic drones are a true “threat from above” giving Police, Governments and Security Industries a new challenge. When your airspace is exposed, no longer are fences, video cameras, and security guards adequate to protect sensitive buildings or personal. Dedrone has developed a technical solution to this security gap, the DroneTracker. DroneTracker effectively protects the users’ airspace from airborne threats. The German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, was taken aback by a drone that crashed two meters away from her at an election event in 2013. This incident had no serious consequences, but Dr. Ingo Seebach could not just ignore the incident. Together with his old friend, Jörg Lamprecht, founder of the drone manufacturer Aibotix, he discussed what would have happened, for example, if instead of a camera the drone had been armed with explosives. Jörg knew what small drones were already capable of, what developers worldwide were working on, and that the market was growing extremely fast. Together they decided to develop technology that will provide protection against civilian drones.
