Fuerza Flex ha mantenido su compromiso de ayudar a los Programa de investigación de la FAA sobre detección y mitigación de sistemas aéreos no tripulados (UAS) en aeropuertos desde la promulgación de la Ley de Reautorización de la FAA el 5 de octubre de 2018. La ley, que prorrogó la financiación y las competencias de la FAA hasta el año fiscal 2023, incluía ajustes legislativos cruciales destinados a mejorar la seguridad y la velocidad de integración de los UAS en el Espacio Aéreo Nacional (NAS).

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, Fuerza Flex 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 Aeropuerto was successfully completed. The FAA’s investigación 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 puede utilizarse para una amplia gama de operaciones

Flex Force’s Dronebuster Block 4 is an advanced mitigation system for UAS (drones) 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.

La empresa está situada en Portland (Oregón), en la intersección de un importante corredor tecnológico que se extiende desde Seattle hasta Silicon Valley.
