A 56-day drone-detection pilot test demonstration has been completed at Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall, revealing 95 instances of previously undetectable unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) activity in the installation’s immediate vicinity.

Through a pilot effort between JBM-HH and Dedrone, a German-American company specializing in counter-drone technology, a drone sensor was installed on the roof of the National Defense University’s Marshall Hall at Fort Lesley J. McNair July 19 for a 26-day data-collection period before being relocated to the roof of the Fort Myer Fitness Center, where it collected data for an additional 30 days.
