As drones become more commonplace, the need to secure facilities from the high-definition cameras and potential dangerous payloads has caused a rapid growth of counter-drone technologies.

DMT, LLC started making radar systems in 2002, and rapidly grew to build and sell these systems across the globe. The commercial radars produced by DMT employ pulsed-Doppler technology. Pulsed-Doppler radar is perhaps the most versatile of radar technologies and is known for its ability to operate in a wide array of environments and applications. DMT uses Doppler radar to track objects on land, sea and in the air. In 2015 it began testing its pulsed-Doppler radars against commonly available drones. Today it produces the longest-range, drone-detection radar systems on the market.
