S&T is partnering with the National Institute of Standards and Technology on test methods for evaluating first responders’ capabilities across the nation and around the world.
Statement by Secretary Mayorkas on the Administration’s C-UAS National Action Plan and Legislative Proposal
Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro N. Mayorkas released the following statement on the Administration’s Counter Unmanned Aircraft Systems (C-UAS) National Action Plan and legislative proposal.
S&T and its National Urban Security Technology Laboratory collaborated with federal and industry partners on a series of air domain awareness technology demonstrations in Montana.
S&T and NUSTL have been working with a coalition of partners (including U.S. Customs and Border Protection, U.S. Coast Guard, the Department of Defense, the Federal Aviation Administration, and industry) for more than a year on Air Domain Awareness (ADA) efforts, culminating with a series of technology demonstrations that kicked off in April 2021.
We at S&T have a story to tell that includes cool technology and the best minds in government research and development coming together to keep our country, and the skies above it, safe.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Department of Justice (DOJ), Federal Communications Commission (FCC), and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) are issuing an advisory guidance document to assist non-federal public and private entities interested in using technical tools, systems, and capabilities to detect and mitigate Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS). The advisory is intended to provide an overview of potentially applicable federal laws and regulations, as well as some factors relevant to whether those laws may apply to particular actions or systems.
S&T initiated the FRROST program in 2018 to help the first responder community evaluate drones in real-world field conditions under simulated scenarios to inform their purchases.
NASA, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and industry have partnered to develop a capability to manage national airspace drone traffic in the future, called the Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Traffic Management (UTM) infrastructure, rolling out in phases over time.
