A high-tech system will monitor the airspace when the Great Lakes Drone Company launches dozens of LED-toting show drones into the night sky at AOPA’s 2019 Fly-Ins.
Great Lakes Drone Company announced a partnership with Fortem Technologies on March 1 that will bring a new level of airspace awareness to 2019 drone performances in the form of SkyDome, a portable electronic surveillance tool designed for law enforcement and event security. The system tracks objects of all kinds, including aircraft (manned and unmanned), people, and ground vehicles.

AOPA Senior Director of UAS Programs Kat Swain said the addition of Fortem Technologies to the drone show crew adds a new layer of safety for everyone.
“We are excited to see the innovative airspace awareness technology at work and admire the desire to collaborate and provide not only an entertaining drone show, but also a safe environment for the surrounding airspace,” Swain said.
