The development builds on the New York's investments in the region's emerging Unmanned Aerial Systems industry.

Last August, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced a $5 million commitment through the Upstate Revitalization Initiative to support the UAS industry in Central New York, bolstering ongoing efforts to create a regional hub for UAS innovation and manufacturing.

At an UTM convention in Syracuse last November, the Governor announced an additional $30 million investment that is being utilized to develop a 50-mile flight traffic management system between Syracuse and Griffiss International Airport in Rome.

Mobile Skylight sets a new standard in drone security and UAS traffic management.

Featuring an array of self-contained multispectral sensors, the system provides accurate three dimensional detection of low-flying, small UAS at a distance of out to 10 kilometers.

Contained in a sleek, rugged van, Mobile Skylight is a complete mobile command center featuring 4x4 off-road capability and can be taken anywhere without a commercial driver's license.

It's designed for rapid deployment of a wide range of applications including stadium, special event security, first responder and search and rescue operations, infrastructure and utility inspection.
