D-Fend Solutions’ EnforceAir to Be Tested in FAA Drone Research Program

D-Fend Solutions announced on Thursday that the Federal Aviation Administration has chosen its EnforceAir counter-drone solution to participate in the Airport UAS Detection and Mitigation Research Program.

According to D-Fend Solutions, EnforceAir is the first radio frequency-cyber-based system participating in the program.

The system is designed for 360-degree and long-range directional protection without collateral effect on nearby navigation or communications systems.

EnforceAir will be initially tested at the Atlantic City International Airport, with possible further tests at other airports, D-Fend Solutions said.

EnforceAir’s participation in the FAA program further drives D-Fend’s current collaboration with other U.S. federal agencies, such as the Department of Defense and the Department of Justice, the company noted.

In November, EnforceAir received a recommendation from the DOD’s Unmanned Aircraft Systems Office as a subcomponent for a Counter-Unmanned Aircraft Systems platform. 

D-Fend Solutions said that the agencies currently operating EnforceAir include the U.S. Special Operations Forces, the U.S. Army, the FBI, and the U.S. Customs and Borders Patrol.
