Under a Pathfinder agreement with the FAA, CACI successfully tested its system at the Atlantic City International Airport from Jan. 25 to Feb. 2. It was the first UAS detection research in a commercial airport environment. A total of 141 operations were executed over five days — 72 with a UAS on the ground and 69 with different small UAS in flight.
“SkyTracker successfully identified, detected, and tracked UAS in flight, and precisely located drone ground operators — all without interfering with airport ground operations,” said CACI CEO and president of U.S. Operations
These guys have done really well, really fast – the agreement was only announced a few months ago. The study is to be completed this August – no word as to when this might be productized and deployed.
