Washington D.C. Area Facility Provides a Safe Flight Environment for UAS Testing

Syracuse, NY – Hidden Level has joined the Xelevate Unmanned Systems Center of Excellence in Leesburg Virginia, that provides a safe environment for testing of drone technologies, facility space and the ability to collaborate with other Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)-focused companies. Hidden Level will have a dedicated office/lab space onsite. The space will be used for demonstrations, meetings, and conferences and will feature live data streams of Hidden Level’s Airspace Monitoring data from cities around the U.S.

Hidden Level’s revolutionary Airspace Monitoring Service (AMS) offers a best-in-class solution to the complex problem of drone detection. Its low-altitude airspace monitoring technology offers an accessible, scalable and affordable solution for public venues, municipal infrastructure, utilities and events, as well as corporate security and law enforcement, critical infrastructure protection, smart cities and commercial drone traffic management.

Xelevate provides the first and only 66-acre facility located within one hour of Washington D.C. dedicated to UAS testing, development, training, innovation, and demonstration with FAA compliant airspace. The facility is used by commercial entities, government agencies, law enforcement and other public safety-focused organizations.

The Xelevate Unmanned Systems Center of Excellence is safeguarded by an on-site ‘Air Boss’ who implements Xelevate safety policies/standard operating procedures (SOPs) and manages the skies during all flight activities. The Senior Air Boss is an FAA-Certified Part 107 Commercial Drone Pilot with 40+ years’ experience supporting high-priority aerial and technology-based government missions.
