The FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018 was signed into law by the President on October 5, 2018. Under this new law, Subtitle B – Unmanned Aircraft Systems, Section 383 deals directly with UAS threats to the National Airspace System. The Administrator of the FAA has been directed to work with the Secretaries of Defense and Homeland Security, and with the heads of other Federal departments and agencies to develop and test technologies that have the ability to detect and mitigate risks posed by errant or hostile UAS operations.
Leach Strategic Partners, LLC understands the counter-UAS (cUAS) detection and mitigation picture and will educate your agency on what the current limitations are regarding the use of cUAS technologies. As regulations change, so will the legal means of UAS mitigation. We are actively engaged in the national cUAS conversation taking place. Before purchasing any cUAS technology that may be illegal to use not matter what information is received, contact us to discuss how to avoid mistakes and liability issues.
Federal agencies having jurisdiction over any interference with a UAS to include prohibited countermeasure activities:
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC)
The National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA)
