Dedrone Makes Counterdrone Tech Market Push Through Aerial Armor Acquisition

Dedrone has purchased Aerial Armor, a Pheonix, Arizona-based developer of drone detection systems, in a deal that would bring together both companies’ technology platforms to help advance counter-drone security.

Sterling, Virginia-headquartered Dedrone said Thursday it will retain the Aerial Armor workforce, which includes CEO Russ Haugan and Chief Technology Officer Matt Altman, as well as honor all customer contracts held by the acquired entity.

The companies aim to help customers adopt multi-sensor fusion and counter uncrewed aerial systems for command and control into their security infrastructure.

Dedrone’s acquisition of Aerial Armor comes on the heels of the former’s growth spurred by an increase in global demand for detection, tracking, identification and mitigation technology to support airspace protection.
