Silverbird Technologies was created from the experience of the four entrepreneurs to provide air, sea, and land tracking systems for the law enforcement and private sectors. Our primary focus is drone detection, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), asset and personnel tracking utilizing RFID, UWB and other RF technologies. Our deployment methodology is to utilize proven, non-proprietary, cost-effective technology with a focus on data collection and availability. We believe that costly, new, proprietary technology often lacks durability for real world usage. We know budgets are tight, but in this rapidly changing world situational awareness and personnel protection is paramount, and accurate data about the situation and the personnel can replace countless wasted hours.
