Drone Defense Gains Extended FAA Support

D-Fend EnforceAir System Deployed, Tested, and Acquired

Israeli firm D-Fend Solutions caught the FAA's eye with their recent test deployment at Syracuse Hancock International Airport, with an additional deployment planned to a second airport site.

The EnforceAir system was trialed in an FAA program at Atlantic City International Airport under an effort to evaluate whether the system could mitigate the threat of unauthorized or inappropriate drone activity without adversely impacting the day-to-day operations of the premises. The evaluation so far has yielded positive results, if the program's expansion is any indication. The D-Fend Solutions stands alone in the pack of drone mitigation purveyors moving on to a second test site, to the point that the FAA even characterizes it as a "graduation" of sorts.

The move onto a phase 2 is reserved for "program participants that are able to demonstrate that their product performs as advertised, generated reliable and accurate data, and warranted further evaluation in another operational setting."

"EnforceAir's quick progression from first trials at Atlantic City to additional evaluations at Syracuse in this demanding and vital FAA program validates D-Fend's vision of enabling a flourishing drone-powered society, specifically in aviation, by supporting the growth of safe and secure drone adoption and integration while applying innovation to defend against rogue drone threats at airports," said Zohar Halachmi, Chairman and CEO of D-Fend Solutions.
