WhiteFox’s counter-drone technology tested this week at U.S. military base

WhiteFox Defense Technologies, Inc. demonstrated their flagship product, the DroneFox, to a range of U.S. military leaders during the Joint Interagency Field Experimentation (JIFX) program from July 31 to August 4, 2017. The U. S. Department of Defense’s Defense Innovation Unit Experimental’s (DIUx) Rogue Squadron used the “red teaming” method to test the product’s capabilities in an operational field environment against “red” (terrorist) drones.

The DroneFox allows soldiers to focus on their missions and know that the sky above is safe from “flying IEDs.” It is the only system that allows operators to perform a threat assessment of drones while whitelisting “friendly drones.”

WhiteFox performed testing at Camp Roberts mock Middle Eastern town, called the
Combined Arms Collective Training Facility (CACTF). In 2014, Capt. Colin Stark said of
the $11 million CACTF, “This facility does a really good job of recreating the different
complexities we might face in a real-world environment.” Further testing was done to
demonstrate remote detection of drones with the DroneFox from the Tactical Operations
Center (TOC).

“The risks that drones pose to our soldiers increase daily. ISIS is using drones to deliver
explosives and to coordinate their suicide bombings to maximize the number of people
killed,” said WhiteFox’s CEO Luke Fox. “Being able to perform field experimentation at
JIFX is a critical step towards deploying the DroneFox overseas to stop ISIS’ drones.”
