Phil Pitsky, vice president of federal operations at Dedrone, said the company has "grand visions" about the potential use of an unmanned aircraft system countermeasure technology, Inside Defense reported Friday.

He was referring to DroneDefender, an anti-small UAS system the San Francisco-based firm acquired from Battelle in October. The non-kinetic platform, which is designed to help government customers mitigate unauthorized drones, won a technology competition held last year at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada.

Pitsky told Inside Defense in an interview that Dedrone plans to increase its workforce size during 2020 and establish a facility in Columbus, Ohio.
