AeroDefense gets SAFETY Act Designation from Department of Homeland Security

The United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) recently named AeroDefense´s AirWarden™ Drone Defense technology the recipient of the Developmental Testing and Evaluation (DT&E) Designation under their SAFETY Act (Support Anti-Terrorism by Fostering Effective Technologies Act of 2002), the company said.

US Congress created the SAFETY Act in the aftermath of the September 11th attacks to encourage the creation and use of Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technologies (QATTs) and provide sellers of these products and services liability protections. The SAFETY Act limits the liability of sellers against injury or damage claims alleging technology failure in the event of a terror attack. Similar claims cannot be brought against users of the QATT. DT&E Designations are awarded to promising QATTs undergoing further testing and evaluation.

AeroDefense provides solutions to detect drones and pilots at stadiums, correctional facilities, critical infrastructure, and other high value targets. AeroDefense´s Drone and Pilot Detection, Location and Alert System, AirWarden™, detects Radio Frequency (RF) drone signals, locates both drone and pilot, and alerts appropriate personnel via text, email, or command center console. Based in Holmdel, NJ, USA, AeroDefense is a privately held, woman owned company that operates within the legal requirements of drone detection technologies.
