SkeyDrone Honored at Air Traffic Management Awards 2023 for Drone Detection Solution


Geneva, 20 March 2024 – At Airspace World 2024 in Geneva, SkeyDrone has been honored with the runner-up award in the category “Integration of drones/AAM” with our Drone Detection as-a-Service solution. This recognition, presented by Air Traffic Management Magazine in collaboration with CANSO, highlights SkeyDrone’s commitment to advancing drone technology in aviation.

The Air Traffic Management Awards aim to encourage pioneering concepts and acknowledge significant achievements by leaders, initiatives, and organisations in the aviation industry. This year, the “Integration of Drones/AAM” category saw a record number of entries, making the competition tougher than ever.

SkeyDrone’s award-winning Drone Detection as-a-Service solution boasts an exceptionally high detection rate and effectively distinguishes authorised drone operations from unauthorised drone activities. Since its successful deployment at events like Tomorrowland in 2023, where it helped confiscate 12 illegal drones, the solution has been adopted by many organisations safeguarding critical infrastructure.

Expressing pride in SkeyDrone’s achievement, Hendrik-Jan Van Der Gucht, Managing Director at SkeyDrone, emphasized the company’s unique position as the only startup recognized at the awards. “Winning this award among tough competition is a testament to the dedication of the SkeyDrone team. We’re proud to be the only startup honored, showing our commitment to innovation in aviation.”
