The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has selected WhiteFox Defense Technologies to join its programme to test effective drone detection and mitigation technologies. The FAA is deploying its Airport UAS detection and mitigation research programme in Atlantic City and Seattle.
In an important effort to protect airports, passengers, and crews from unauthorized drones, the FAA’s National Security Programs and Incident Response section is testing drone detection technology that will provide the greater airspace awareness without disrupting other elements of the National Airspace System (NAS). Initial testing took place at Atlantic City Airport, home of the FAA’s William J. Hughes Technical Center, before expanding to additional airports around the country.
“We are honored to be a part of this program and look forward to assisting the FAA in securing our airports,” says Luke Fox, WhiteFox CEO.
WhiteFox’s technology is leading the way in non-disruptive drone airspace security, and the company is no stranger to airport detections. The company’s data was featured in the Wall Street Journal after detecting over 1,200 flights in a single month in LAX airspace.
