The United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has named AeroDefense’s AirWarden™ drone defence technology the recipient of the Developmental Testing and Evaluation (DT&E) Designation under their SAFETY Act (Support Anti-Terrorism by Fostering Effective Technologies Act of 2002).
According to a company press release:
“US Congress created the SAFETY Act in the aftermath of the September 11th attacks to encourage the creation and use of Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technologies (QATTs) and provide sellers of these products and services liability protections. The SAFETY Act limits the liability of sellers against injury or damage claims alleging technology failure in the event of a terror attack. Similar claims cannot be brought against users of the QATT. DT&E Designations are awarded to promising QATTs undergoing further testing and evaluation.
Linda Ziemba, CEO at AeroDefense, said “We are thrilled that DHS has placed their confidence in our emerging technology. Not only does their support validate our dedication to continuously improving the AirWarden system, but we are even more excited about what this means for our customers.”
