MetLife Stadium selects AeroDefense for early drone detection


MetLife Stadium, home to the New York Jets and New York Football Giants, has selected the AeroDefense Drone Detection System, AirWarden, to provide an early warning system for drones.

“RF is currently the best solution to identify where the drone and operator are, and the only one that we found that can detect the drone and controller when the RF connection is first established,” said Daniel DeLorenzi, vice president, Security & Safety Services, at MetLife Stadium. “Therefore, it’s possible that we can detect the drone before it even takes off.”

Once a controller or drone is detected, AirWarden notifies MetLife Stadium security staff so they can respond.
