Dedrone and Nocturne Drones cooperate to provide improved airspace security for events

The drone show provider, Nocturne Drones, will use a cloud-based solution from Dedrone for airspace security to protect events from unauthorised drones.

A business unit of the German company Technology Arts, Nocturne Drones specialises in bespoke drone shows for customers such as E.ON and Xbox and is unveiling its ‘Nocturne Drone Defence Systems’.

The company is now cooperating with airspace security provider, Dedrone, to expand its portfolio and protect shows around the world from unauthorised drones.

“Safety is our top priority. Since we often work in sensitive areas, it is our aim to make our shows even safer and to offer our customers complete protection against drones from a single source. In view of the ever-increasing danger posed by drones at events we chose to partner with Dedrone,” explained Jens Hillenkötter, Managing Director of Nocturne Drones and designer and producer of multimedia shows.

Dedrone offers a cloud-based all-in-one solution for aviation security and its system can “detect, identify, locate and mitigate nearly 300 different types of drones, including homemade drones”.

“Drone shows are one of the most exciting uses for drones today and Nocturne Drones create fantastic events worldwide,” said Aaditya Devarakonda, CEO of Dedrone. “To ensure a flawless show and to protect spectators and airspace, safety must come first. We are delighted to be working with Nocturne Drones to ensure they can continue to perform world-class drone shows with the highest level of safety.”

Nocturne Drones’ drone fleets is expected to have certifications and features specifically designed for live events and areas of enhanced security.

In addition to firmly integrated drone detection systems inside the control vehicles of Nocturne Drone Shows, further systems are available for the airspace surveillance of events, including espionage protection and defusing possible attack risks. Engineers at Nocturne Drones are currently developing additional counterintelligence solutions for various applications.
