Counter drone company D-Fend has been selected for participation in the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)’s Airport UAS Detection and Mitigation Research Program, under Section 383 of the FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018. D-Fend Solutions’ C-UAS system EnforceAir will undergo initial testing at Atlantic City International Airport and potential further evaluation at other airport environments.
The Airport UAS Detection and Mitigation Research Program enables the FAA to work with major federal departments and agencies to ensure that systems are being developed, tested, or deployed to detect and/or mitigate potential risks posed by errant or hostile UAS operations and ensures they do not impact or interfere with safe airport operations.
D-Fend Solutions’ EnforceAir is an RF-cyber based advanced protocol takeover UAS detection and mitigation system. It is designed to provide threat detection and mitigation while allowing nearby authorized drones to continue operations with no collateral effect on navigation or communications systems, damage to infrastructure, or excessive burden to human resources. The system provides 360 degree and long-range directional protection and coverage to protect airport facilities and takeoff and landing airspace corridors, says the company.
