D-Fend Solutions’ participation in the US Federal Aviation Administration’s FAA’s UAS Detection and Mitigation Testing & Evaluation programme has been extended to a second airport – Syracuse Hancock International, the company announced on 7 December. The company’s core counter-UAS programme – EnforceAir – has already undergone testing at Atlantic City International.
The programme enables the FAA to ensure technologies/systems developed, tested, or deployed by federal agencies to detect and/or mitigate potential risks associated with UAS do not adversely impact the National Airspace System. “EnforceAir’s quick progression from first trials at Atlantic City to additional evaluations at Syracuse in this demanding and vital FAA program validates D-Fend’s vision of enabling a flourishing drone-powered society, specifically in aviation, by supporting the growth of safe and secure drone adoption and integration while applying innovation to defend against rogue drone threats at airports,” said Zohar Halachmi, D-Fend’s Chairman and CEO.
