Asylon, Inc., a leading U.S. aerial and ground robot security company, today announced that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has granted three exemptions beyond the visual field of view (BVLOS) of automated security drone in a. did. -Box system and service. These three exemptions describe the four first sites in the United States, and their awards are a testament to Asylon’s commitment to achieving data, security, and the right results in the right way.

Asylon first partnered with the FAA in February 2020 through the Unmanned Space Systems (UAS) Integrated Pilot Program (IPP). [now known as the BEYOND Program] When an automated Drone Sentry system is deployed at Memphis International Airport for FedEx Express.

Mark Landry, Former Senior Manager of Corporate Strategic Security at FedEx Freight, said: “Since 2018, I have been managing a security drone program at FedEx Freight. At this time, I have been doing business in a fairly unknown regulated area through various programs with the FAA. The Asylon team participated and had a relationship. Immediately assisted in the education of all stakeholders. Their expertise and leadership helped pave the way for security, compliance and innovation. And thanks to this important partnership, the United States So we were able to successfully expand our unprecedented project. ”Mark recently joined CEVA Logistics as Senior Director of Global Security Transformation.

Asylon’s entire flight operations, from takeoff to landing and battery replacement, are fully automated and managed remotely. To date, Asylon has completed over 20,000 automated patrol and alarm response missions in the United States using the DroneCore system. This system is used to thwart crime and detect potential problems such as theft, fire, and active shooters, while providing real-time intelligence to security teams. In addition, as a robot security platform with integrated sensors, we have investigated and cleared thousands of false alarms, a problem that has plagued security teams that are already understaffed.

Dan Elwell, a former FAA deputy administrator and member of Asylon’s advisory board, said: Of the few of these BVLOS exemptions, I believe Asylon is different. The security use case is perfect, remote operations have been built, the process developed to ensure this final exemption is scalable, and Asylon has done to prove that the safety case is incredible. The number of automatic flights is enormous. With this team and technology, I’m convinced that this is just the beginning. “

One of the BVLOS exemptions granted is to Asylon’s customer, GXO Logistics, who recently announced that it will significantly expand its security robotics program. GXO’s new facility, Drone Sentry System, in Clayton, Indiana, is now able to legally fly maneuvers to people, nights, and moving vehicles. The exemption also designates the Remote Pilot Incommand (RPIC) as an analyst working at Achillon’s 24/7 Robot Security Operations Center (RSOC) in Norristown, PA.

This class of exemption is the world’s first automated security drone system, but other groups that allow such a widespread exemption include Google’s Wing, Zipline, Xcel Energy, and Matternet. I have.

“Asylon’s core team, founded by MIT’s aerospace engineers, brings a lot of experience in the industry. That’s why we started creating data and safety cases from day one. Now quality first, always safe. We have created a scalable, templated process that embodies this core value, “said Brent McLaughlin, co-founder and COO of Asylon. “These first BVLOS exemptions are a key step in expanding our operations to meet the huge demands of the security industry. Automated end-to-end high-speed response aircraft like DroneSentry are our customers and their employees. We are confident that we will create a safer facility for our personnel. Our team is honored to innovate with the FAA and its key customers in this regard. “
