AIRT Awarded Grant to Improve Public Safety Drone Operations

| |

Airborne International Response Team (AIRT) has been awarded a Federal Grant from the U.S. Department of Commerce to help Public Safety and Emergency Drone Operations programs. AIRT will help public safety programs to establish standards and training programs, one of the greatest barriers to entry for public safety agencies.

” The grant funding will be used by AIRT’s DRONERESPONDERS program to help implement standard test methods for sUAS developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) as a way to objectively evaluate aircraft capabilities, focus training with measures of remote pilot proficiency, and support pilot credentialing,” says an AIRT press release.
