Are RF Detection Systems Effective In Stopping Drones?
Linda Ziemba is founder and CEO of AeroDefense, a New Jersey-based company that provides a proven drone detection solution for locating a drone and pilot simultaneously.

AirWarden is currently deployed at MetLife Stadium and correctional facilities in Georgia and Massachusetts.
