Tech firm lands Pentagon contract for drone-detection system

April 21, 2021 - Tampa-based Entropy Technology Design has won a contract with the U.S. Department of Defense that will see its drone-detection technology platform used by the nation’s armed forces. Entropy, which is a Florida certified woman-owned business, specializes in very low frequency (VLF) sensor design and software analysis. VLF, according to a news release, is used to rapidly identify, isolate and track events and potential threats by detecting magnetic signature formation. Entropy’s systems can be used to detect severe weather, invasive drones and drone navigation, infrastructure mapping and other security and public safety threats. “As the new abnormal shifts business models, technology continues to be at the forefront of innovation,” CEO Tami Fitzpatrick stated in the release. “We entered 2021 with a strong mission and vision to continue the advanced development of our passive, non-kinetic threat detection for our government customer. Equally important to our plans is responding to the commercial demand for our advanced weather detection and infrastructure mapping systems with focus on the cellular networks and power industries.”
