Black Sage Technologies
Inspired by the Western US plant Black Sage, which is known for its ability to thrive in extreme climates, the plant directly mirrors the company’s values. “Black”, signifying knowledge and discretion; and “Sage”, signifying wisdom. Black Sage ultimately has one goal with their products: to “intelligently combine disparate technologies and processes to disrupt the physical security industry.”
Black Sage provides an extensive hardware and software platform that detects, identifies and defeats unmanned aerial vehicles. The mission is “to keep families and soldiers safe from one of the fastest growing threats of our time: malicious use of unmanned aerial vehicles— drones”.
Black Sage is doing this by inventing the next generation of automated detection and tracking products. Their detection and tracking works day or night in all weather conditions. It detects vehicles at 1500 meters, humans at 1000 meters and UAVs at 500 meters; then locks and follows the target with video tracking up to 5000 meters.
