Flexkraft hat sich weiterhin für die Unterstützung der FAA's Airport Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Detection and Mitigation Research Program seit der Verabschiedung des FAA Reauthorization Act am 5. Oktober 2018. Das Gesetz, mit dem die Finanzierung und die Befugnisse der FAA bis zum Haushaltsjahr 2023 verlängert wurden, enthielt entscheidende legislative Anpassungen, die darauf abzielen, die Sicherheit und die Geschwindigkeit der Integration von UAS in den nationalen Luftraum (NAS) zu verbessern.

In August 2020, the FAA initially disclosed its plans to examine and assess technologies and systems that could identify and minimize potential safety hazards caused by unmanned aircraft at and around airports. The testing program involved five airports, which were chosen for participation. By March 2022, the selection of UAS mitigation systems had been completed, and in the summer of 2022, Flexkraft supplied the new Dronebuster(r) Block 4.

The Dronebuster Block 4, deployed by the FAA as a standalone mitigation solution, underwent evaluation in the autumn of 2022, and in early 2023, the initial testing at Atlantic City International Flughafen was successfully completed. The FAA’s Forschung into UAS detection and mitigation is anticipated to continue throughout 2023. The Dronebuster will now advance to up to four additional airports for NAS testing. The findings from this evaluation will aid the FAA and other authorized federal entities in developing strategies for certifying, authorizing, or permitting UAS detection and mitigation technologies across the nation.

Dronebuster kann für eine Vielzahl von Einsätzen verwendet werden

Flex Force’s Dronebuster Block 4 is an advanced mitigation system for UAS (Drohnen) that can be customized for a wide range of operations within the NAS. Although it is typically utilized as a handheld system weighing approximately 5 pounds, the Dronebuster can also be conveniently mounted onto a pan and tilt gimbal and integrated into a command and control (C2) system for remote operation (both autonomous and manual). The Dronebuster system can jam a wide range of UAS frequency bands.

Das Unternehmen hat seinen Sitz in Portland, OR, am Schnittpunkt eines bedeutenden Technologiekorridors, der sich von Seattle bis zum Silicon Valley erstreckt.
