Then you’re going to enjoy hearing from today’s guest. Craig Marcinkowski is the Director of Strategy and Business Development for Gryphon Sensors. Gryphon develops commercial sensor systems for the safe integration of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) into the National Airspace System (NAS). Leveraging six decades of expertise in radar and electronic surveillance sensor research and development from parent company SRC Inc., the company provides innovative multi-spectrum solutions in the drone security and UAS integration markets.
Gryphon Sensors is one of the companies working with the FAA on NAS integration. Earlier this year, the company demonstrated "Skylight", a system that integrates a diverse sensor suite to track objects. A wide variety of drones were flown at the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport to test the capability of the system to detect, track, classify and display threats. In this episode of the Drone Radio Show, Craig talks about the Skylight System, the demonstration, the work that Gryphon Sensors is doing to safely integrate drones into the national air space, and he’ll give us a glimpse of what’s happening with this critical FAA initiative.
