The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has approved the use of Asylon’s DroneSentry for use in Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) drone operations. 

The DroneSentry from Asylon, a leading air and ground robotic perimeter security company, is an American-made drone-in-a-box system. The latest FAA approval removes the requirement for on-site personnel during flight operations at a customer site. 

Asylon demonstrated its ability to operate the DroneSentry system safely and effectively in various environments and conditions, aiming to achieve its widespread adoption and use in commercial and industrial settings.

With more than 40,000 fully automated commercial security drone missions completed to date, the approval is the result of extensive testing and collaboration with the FAA to ensure the safety and reliability of the DroneSentry drone-in-a-box system.

A unique aspect to the approval is the use of Asylon’s 24/7 Robotics Security Operations Center (RSOC) as the Remote Pilot in Command. Asylon uses their RSOC for remote drone operations around the United States, ensuring constant monitoring and operations.

Asylon assert that BVLOS drone operations represent the future of drone technology, and unlock a myriad of new applications and capabilities. The DroneSentry’s FAA approval marks a pivotal moment in the progression of regulatory approvals that open up the application and viability of drones at scale, and builds upon Asylon’s eight previously received FAA waivers for its turnkey security drone service.

With this approval, the Asylon state that it stands as an innovator in this emerging marketplace, setting new standards for safety and performance in nationwide operations.

Brent Mclaughlin, Co-Founder and COO at Asylon Robotics, commented; “This approval is the golden ticket of the industry, it is what every major player has been working towards. 

“The BVLOS waiver and removal of the need to have on-site personnel opens up our capabilities, flexibility, and ability to meet customer needs at the scale they’re requesting. This success is a testament to the Asylon team’s consistent delivery of 24/7 operations for our customers and our safety-first dedication.”
