Chief Technology Officer of Department 13 (ASX:D13) Rob Sen was invited by the United States White House Office of Science and Technology to participate in a working group focused on both the near and long-term implications of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) as an emergent technology.

The first event took place on August 2nd 2016, with a specific focus on:

  • Airspace integration;
  • Potential of UAS to create new jobs and industries, save lives, and improve the way government agencies and companies to do business, enable high-impact research;
  • Potential actions to further address safety as well as security and privacy from drones.

Further topics discussed included security surrounding UAV and UAS applications and commercial use, with funding initiatives announced to accelerate the safe integration of UAS in the commercial and community airspace.

D13’s flagship product MESMERTM provides an end-to-end counter UAS solution that incorporates detection, identification, tracking and mitigation capabilities for perimeter security and force protection.

Later this month D13 will be competing in the MITRE CUAS Challenge at Marine Corps Base Quantico and in September at Black Dart, the Department of Defense’s premier Counter UAS Test Range at Eglin AFB, Florida.

D13 will showcase its cutting edge technology to leading military and government bodies.

There is no guarantee that these planned events will lead to revenues for the company or appreciation in the share price of D13, so seek professional financial advice if considering D13 for your investment portfolio.
