Counter-drone specialist Dedrone closes $30 million Series C-1 round
Rapidly expanding counter-drone company Dedrone has closed an over-subscribed $30 million Series C-1 fundraising round that will serve to fuel its continued business expansion in the US and abroad. The successful recruitment of backers comes just seven months after the firm attracted $30.5 million in a December Series C effort.
The investor appeal of San Francisco-based Dedrone reflects the swiftly rising importance of counter-drone capabilities as the numbers and applications of both business and private UAVs taking to the skies continue multiplying. The company produces systems that detect, identify, locate, and if need be neutralize about 300 different models of craft produced by over 65 manufacturers. Its recently introduced mobile DroneRapidResponse unit can be deployed in less than 30 minutes, providing continual airspace protection within a five-kilometer radius of a venue or event.
