SkySafe, a global drone airspace management and awareness leader, has been chosen for the FAA’s UAS Detection and Mitigation Testing and Evaluation Program. This selection underscores SkySafe’s commitment to improving aviation safety amid concerns about integrating Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) into the National Airspace System (NAS). The program aims to identify technologies capable of detecting and mitigating unauthorized UAS activities near critical infrastructure. SkySafe’s solution provides a comprehensive view of UAS activity, featuring real-time detection, analysis, historical flight forensics, reporting, and integration of the upcoming Remote ID standard, utilizing advanced sensors and cloud-based intelligence.
“We are honored to have been chosen by the FAA for this crucial program that aims to ensure the safety and security of our skies-especially the protection of our airports,” said Grant Jordan, CEO of SkySafe. “As the drone industry continues to expand, so does the need for robust technologies that can identify and address potential threats to public safety. SkySafe is committed to collaborating closely with the FAA to deliver effective solutions that provide awareness of unauthorized drones and the risks they pose.”
SkySafe earned the selection based on its expertise and innovative approach to airspace awareness and management. The company’s technology is undergoing initial testing at the Atlantic City International Airport.
SkySafe is a global leader in scalable networks of drone-detection sensors, offering Drone Detection, Tracking, and Identification (DTI) as a Service (DaaS). Tested and validated by the FAA, SkySafe’s technology is vetted and approved to ensure airspace safety, security, and world-class drone forensics capabilities. Its cloud-based platform, the most comprehensive on the market, provides real-time and historical UAS identification, activity tracking, and telemetry data for teams responsible for protecting cities, infrastructure, the public, and campuses. Teams using SkySafe for localized airspace intelligence and management get alerts to drones within their area to manage potential threats, approve authorized flights, and better understand the entire space around their assigned protective envelope.
Founded in 2015 and based in San Diego, California, SkySafe was started by and employs recognized experts in the field of drone threat analysis. SkySafe’s technology is made in the U.S.A. and distributed globally.
