FAA to carry out drone detection tests at business airports in four states to help shape future policy

Atlantic Metropolis Worldwide Airport, NJ, is the latest US airport to test drone detection technology led by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The airport invited Hearst TV Nationwide Investigative Unit to observe the tests.

Currently, the FAA does not permit airports to purchase their own detection methods, although it reports an increase in drone sightings around airports. The agency is conducting tests at five business airports at locations in Washington, Ohio, Alabama and New York over the next 18 months under the leadership of Leesa Papier, Director of the FAA’s Nationwide Safety Applications and Incident Response unit.
