Counter drone technology company Department 13 has been granted a US patent covering coding technology that it says can dramatically reduce power consumption and cost in radio transmitters.

According to D13, the patented technology can, in some cases, double the battery life of radio transmitters and is applicable to phones, computers, drones and cameras.

The ASX-listed D13 also says the newly patented technology provides significant IP licensing opportunities.

The patent has been exclusively licensed to Department 13 and assigned to Genghiscomm Holdings, the IP holding company of D13’s chief science officer Steve Shattil.

Jonathan Hunter, chief executive of Department 13, said the technology also enhanced the ability of counter-drone systems to use networks of distributed sensors and would be utilised in future versions of its counter-drone system, MESMER.

“With the anticipated expansion of wireless communications and the overall drone market, this patent will provide Department 13 with a unique competitive advantage as well an additional revenue stream through potential IP licensing opportunities,” Hunter said.

“This technology is essential to future commercial drone markets, including air traffic management, airborne delivery services, sensor networks and infrastructure to support cellular communications.”

Department 13 already owns and licenses a variety of patents covering wireless networks for managing drones and adapting to emerging threats.
