Dedrone is a leader in airspace security. With more customers around the world than any other airspace security company, we enable our clients to protect people, property, and information from the threat of drones, while enabling the “good” drones to take off (pun intended). The simple fact is that no security company can build a barrier strong enough or high enough to protect from a drone, so we need a tech solution to protect us from the persistent and escalating drone threat. At the same time, the “good” drones will dramatically improve our lives and increase GDP by completing tasks like acting as first responders, delivering medical supplies and retail packages, and more. By combining advanced sensor-fusion technology with AI-driven pattern recognition software, our solutions enable early and reliable drone detection, pilot location and advanced warning in the event an unauthorized drone approaches a secured area. Our customers include national governments, public safety agencies, sporting stadiums, prisons, private research facilities, critical infrastructure sites like airports and power plants, data centers, VIPs and more. Drones are the world’s new asymmetric threat to public safety and national security. Dedrone’s dual-use technology was recognized by two major awards this year. The CNBC Disruptor 50 and TIME’s Best Inventions 2023 lists both feature Dedrone as an innovative company disrupting the industry with its breakthrough capabilities and industry-leading customer list. Dedrone is implemented across 31 countries and is used by five of the G-7 nation governments; 190 critical infrastructure sites; 40 airports; 60+ stadiums; 15+ US federal entities and 20+ non-US governments. We actively provide counterdrone solutions for some of the most high-profile events around the world, working closely with over 120 public safety agencies globally. Our technology is also in use on the front lines in Ukraine, and we are proud to support them in their fight to defend their homeland.

Raft is a digital consulting firm with niche expertise in the rapid delivery of modern, user-first, scalable, and data-intensive digital solutions. We accelerate the missions of our federal partners through human-centered design (HCD) and agile development practices, bringing deep technical expertise in DevSecOps, Kubernetes management, cloud-native microservice architectures, and secure, open source delivery. We put our people and our culture first. We work with some of the smartest, hardest working experts in their field. We owe it to them to make sure our team is free of meaningless restrictions and internal politics so they can focus on what they love, finding innovative solutions. We build off the Open-Source and resist vendor lock in. That way you’re not paying us to reinvent the wheel, our solutions play nice with others and are always adaptable. We know digital innovation doesn’t always operate during bank hours, so neither do we. (It's also why we don’t dress like bankers.) We aren’t afraid to go the extra mile or put in the extra time to find a solution. We get it right the first time; we won’t waste our time (and your money) trying to fix something that’s fundamentally broken. It’s kind of like making an exceptional cup of coffee, if the beans are roasted wrong, it doesn’t matter how much pumpkin spice you dump in your cup, it’s still not going to taste great. And above all else we’re up for a challenge; it’s in our DNA. Ask us about something that’s never been done, or better yet something that can’t be done, and we’ll find a way to do it. It’s just who we are. If you need a partner that’s looking toward the future and not the past, don’t go traditional, go Raft.
