NORRISTOWN, PA — Asylon, Inc. has secured a groundbreaking approval from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for its drone operations beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS). This approval, concerning the company’s DroneSentry system—an American-made drone-in-a-box solution—marks a significant milestone in the evolution of drone regulatory standards and their application in various sectors.

The FAA’s latest approval eliminates the need for on-site personnel during flight operations at customer locations, setting a new benchmark for autonomous drone usage in commercial security and beyond. Leveraging its eight previous FAA waivers for its security drone service, Asylon has now completed over 40,000 fully automated commercial security drone missions, underscoring the efficacy and reliability of its technology.

This achievement comes after rigorous testing and collaboration with the FAA, demonstrating the DroneSentry’s ability to safely and effectively operate under diverse conditions. The company’s commitment to safety and innovation has been a driving force behind this regulatory breakthrough, which promises to expand the use and benefits of drones across many industries.

A key feature of this approval is the designation of Asylon’s 24/7 Robotics Security Operations Center (RSOC) as the Remote Pilot in Command. The RSOC enables around-the-clock remote drone operations nationwide, ensuring continuous monitoring and management of flight missions.

Brent Mclaughlin, Co-Founder and COO of Asylon Robotics, hailed the approval as a major industry milestone. “This approval represents the industry’s ‘golden ticket,’ something every major player has been striving towards,” Mclaughlin stated. The BVLOS waiver, coupled with the removal of the requirement for on-site flight personnel, significantly enhances the company’s operational capabilities and its ability to meet the growing demands of customers on a larger scale.
