WhiteFox Defense has joined the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)’s Airport UAS detection and mitigation research program in Atlantic City and Seattle.

In an effort to protect airports, passengers, and crews from unauthorized drones, the FAA’s National Security Programs and Incident Response section is testing drone detection technology that will provide greater airspace awareness without disrupting other elements of the National Airspace System (NAS). 

Initial testing took place at Atlantic City Airport, home of the FAA’s William J. Hughes Technical Center, before expanding to additional airports around the country.

“We are honored to be a part of this program and look forward to assisting the FAA in securing our airports,” said Luke Fox, WhiteFox CEO.

WhiteFox is one of the companies leading the way in non-disruptive drone airspace security, with company’s data being featured in the Wall Street Journal after detecting over 1,200 flights in a single month in LAX airspace.
