Echodyne to Speak on Critical Need for UAS Detection and Mitigation Technologies to Enhance Airport Security

Sponsored by Businesswire

Echodyne, the manufacturer of innovative, high-performance, small
electronically scanned array (ESA) radars for government and commercial
markets, announced today that Maureen Swanson, Manager of Public Policy
and Partner Engagement, will speak June 5th at 2pm at the FAA
UAS Symposium in Baltimore. The event takes place at the Baltimore
Convention Center.

Swanson will participate on the panel entitled “UAS Mitigation at
Airports” and discuss the importance of precisely tracking and
classifying objects of interest so that mitigation protocols can be
triggered when appropriate. Echodyne’s MESA™ radars are best in class,
offering the most detailed position data available. She will also touch
on how radar data is useful for prosecuting operators for flying in
restricted airspace.

The event, presented by the FAA and AUVSI, brings stakeholders from
various entities, including the military, government, public safety and
unmanned systems sectors, together to discuss the rules and concepts
that will govern the future of drone operations.

“As the popularity of drones continues to rise, the issue of securing
our airports becomes more challenging,” Swanson said. “It’s critical to
have technology that can accurately detect and track drones flying in
restricted airspace, whether intentionally or not, to keep our airports
and communities safe.”
