Força de Flexão continua empenhado em ajudar os Programa de investigação da FAA para a deteção e atenuação de sistemas de aeronaves não tripuladas (UAS) em aeroportos desde a promulgação da Lei de Reautorização da FAA em 5 de outubro de 2018. A lei, que estendeu o financiamento e as autoridades da FAA até o ano fiscal de 2023, incluiu ajustes legislativos cruciais destinados a aumentar a segurança e a velocidade da integração do UAS no Espaço 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, Força de Flexão 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 Aeroporto was successfully completed. The FAA’s investigação 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.

O Dronebuster pode ser utilizado para uma vasta gama de operações

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.
