MetLife Stadium Selects AeroDefense for Drone Detection

Technology Alerts Stadium Security of Drone and Controller for Quick Response, Threat Mitigation, and Guest Safety

HOLMDEL, N.J. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — October 17, 2019AeroDefense, the leading provider of domestically legal drone detection systems, today announced that MetLife Stadium selected the AeroDefense Drone Detection System, AirWarden™, to provide an early warning system for drones.

MetLife Stadium is home to the New York Jets and New York Football Giants and hosts many large-scale events including concerts, international soccer, and college football games.

No one should fly a drone in proximity to a large gathering of people for a variety of security and safety-related reasons. In addition, MetLife Stadium is in close proximity to Teterboro Airport where there are significant FAA regulations that govern flying a drone.

MetLife Stadium is constantly striving to ensure the safety and security of its guests and in 2017 began to evaluate many different types of drone detection systems, including radar, radio frequency (RF), acoustic, and camera systems.

“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 immediately. The system has been extensively tested in a stadium environment to ensure reliable detection and a low false-positive rate.

“During NFL tailgating, the background RF noise at MetLife Stadium can be significantly greater than a normal urban environment. This is due to fans live-streaming television, using cell phones, dashcams, and even WiFi-enabled tailgating grills. So we’ve worked diligently with MetLife Stadium and our team of developers to optimize the detection capabilities of our AirWarden system,” said Linda Ziemba, Founding CEO of AeroDefense.

As a result of the early warning provided by the AirWarden system, MetLife Stadium and local law enforcement have been able to interdict many different types of drones and create a safer and more secure environment.
