Dedrone expands its role in FAA airport drone detection trials
Airspace monitoring and security tech company Dedrone is expanding its work with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in testing its drone detection and identification systems at an increasing number of airports, where it will also demonstrate its mitigation solutions for invasive craft.
Dedrone says the extension of its existing drone detection trials with the FAA will build on the lessons already learned from their earlier activity at Atlantic City International Airport. As part of that, the Virginia-based firm has already commenced trial operations at a still undisclosed US airport, and will eventually oversee those at a total of five air traffic hubs.
Parallel to that effort, Dedrone is also consulting with regulators and congressional leaders on the best solutions available for drone detection and mitigation strategies ahead of Congress’s FAA reauthorization.
