About CSA

Home of the first Drone Aviation Defense System.

Our mission is to save lives and protect aircraft
by preventing drones from flying into aircraft flight paths.

Who We Are

ClearSpace Aeronautics is a market leader in development of security and safety systems for Drone (UAS/UAV), Aviation, Aeronautics and Aerospace. Our patent-pending Drone Aviation Response System™ (DAR™) is the first complete system to prevent drones from colliding with aircraft. DAR™ is built upon our patent-pending Drone Defense System™ core technology suite which includes technologies and products for several vertical markets to protect air, land and sea equipment, structures and people from unauthorized drone intrusions.

Learn More About DAR™

According to the Department of Transportation, there are currently more than 350,000 registered aircraft and 6,000 aircraft in flight at any given time in U.S. airspace. In 2016, more than two million small drones were sold in the U.S. with 1.2 million sold during the holiday season. So far, only 500,000 people have registered their drones with the FAA. More drones in the air with no way to share airspace safely with aircraft increases the probability of catastrophic collision.

DAR™ includes Automatic Surveillance Dependent Broadcast (ADS-B) to help aircraft owners meet the 2020 FAA ADS-B mandate. It fits existing avionics systems and can also be fitted as a stand-alone solution. It also integrates with land-based systems and smart city infrastructures.

Recognizing the urgent need to improve aircraft safety, and facilitate safe, secure flight of manned and unmanned aircraft, we are developing the DAR™ Eagle family of applications. The DAR™ Eagle MRO App will be made available for free to all aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) companies for convenient specification and ordering of the DAR™ system for specific aircraft. The DAR™ Eagle First Response App will include ordering, also handshaking and control functions for managing rogue drones.
