D-Fend Solutions announced that its flagship product, EnforceAir, helped safeguard Pope Francis, 90 bishops, 500 priests and an estimated crowd of 60,000 worshippers during Holy Mass in Slovakia. The Ministry of Interior of Slovakia cooperated with D-Fend Solutions to protect the Pope, his retinue and attendees from the threat of rogue drones throughout multiple events in Slovakia from September 12-15, 2021, culminating in an open-air Mass in Šaštín, a town that is home to the National Marian Shrine.
D-Fend Solutions and IDGA released survey results revealing that traditional counter-drone technologies, such as jamming-based and kinetic solutions, are viewed as inadequate. The counter-small, unmanned aerial systems (C-sUAS) survey collected insights from security personnel worldwide who are involved in their organization’s C-sUAS operations. Participants hailed from special forces and military, national security and homeland security.
In response to increased awareness of rogue drone risks globally, D-Fend Solutions have distributed its flagship product, EnforceAir, to numerous new clients while expanding its presence at existing customer sites. D-Fend continued to grow its team globally and enlarged its North American operations, including the establishment of a direct presence in Canada. The company’s management team is now comprised of 13 executives.
