Founded in 2015, AeroDefense offers fixed and mobile drone detection (in-motion) solutions for the military, airports, correctional facilities, stadiums, and other critical infrastructure.
AeroDefense’s patented Radio Frequency (RF) based drone detection system, AirWarden™, detects, classifies, locates, and tracks both drone and pilot simultaneously, providing actionable intelligence to respond effectively (and safely) to drone threats.
The system is actively deployed in the marketplace and has proven effective in high RF environments such as New York’s Times Square during a large outdoor gathering and downtown Manhattan during normal business operations as well as MetLife Stadium where it has been commercially deployed since 2018.
AeroDefense is a U.S. based, woman-owned small business operating within the U.S. legal requirements of drone detection technologies. The AeroDefense development team is based solely in New Jersey.
As of Q2 2021, AirWarden is the first and only drone detection solution to receive the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Support Anti-Terrorism by Fostering Effective Technologies (SAFETY) Act Developmental Testing and Evaluation Designation. Technology solutions that have earned this designation undergo rigorous evaluation by DHS offering the user a high level of confidence in the system.
At the beginning of 2020, AeroDefense received an AFWERX Direct to Phase II Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant with customer commitments from two wings at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst (621st Contingency Response Squadron (CRS) and 87th Security Forces Squadron (SFS)) through the Commercial Solutions Opening (CSO) process. The project is sponsored by the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL).
