Dedrone GmbH, a Kassel, Germany-based provider of drone early-warning and detection solutions, raised $2.9m in funding.
The round was led by Target Partners with participation from American entrepreneur Tom Noonan (Internet Security Systems, JouleX) as well as serial entrepreneurs Jörg Lamprecht (Only Solutions, Cobion, Aibotix) and Rene Seeber (Only Solutions, Cobion, JouleX).
The company intends to use the funds to continue to develop the Drone Tracker system, build up an international distribution network and strengthen its team.
Founded in 2014 by CEO Dr. Ingo Seebach, Dedrone provides a professional civilian drone early-warning and detection system. It is modular in construction, can be integrated in existing alarm systems and works with a multi-sensor system. The first deliveries will take place in April of this year.
