Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced that Gryphon Sensors, a SRC Inc. company based in Central New York, has developed a state-of-the-art mobile Unmanned Traffic Management system called Mobile Skylight. The development builds on the state’s investments in the regions emerging Unmanned Aerial Systems industry.

Last August, the Governor announced a $5 million commitment through the Upstate Revitalization Initiative to support the UAS industry in Central New York, bolstering ongoing efforts to create a regional hub for UAS innovation and manufacturing. At an UTM convention in Syracuse last November, the Governor announced an additional $30 million investment that is being utilized to develop a 50-mile flight traffic management system between Syracuse and Griffiss International Airport in Rome.

“By investing in the state-of-the-art technologies of tomorrow, we ensure that New York remains at the forefront of innovation and high-tech industry across the country,” Governor Cuomo said. With this new development, this region further secures its role as a national leader in drone technology, helping to spur job creation and economic activity – helping Central New York continue to rise for generations to come.

Mobile Skylight sets a new standard in drone security and UAS traffic management. Featuring an array of self-contained multispectral sensors, the system provides accurate three dimensional detection of low-flying, small UAS at a distance of out to 10 kilometers. Contained in a sleek, rugged van, Mobile Skylight is a complete mobile command center featuring 4×4 off-road capability and can be taken anywhere without a commercial drivers license. Its designed for rapid deployment of a wide range of applications including stadium, special event security, first responder and search and rescue operations, infrastructure and utility inspection.

Todays unveiling of Gryphon Sensors first-in-the-nation unmanned aircraft management system underscores that Central New York is positioned to become a world leader in the UTM field, said Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul, who spoke at todays announcement. With the creation of the drone corridor, the Genius NY competition, and the alignment of our business and academic institutions though the Central New York Rising Upstate Revitalization Initiative, we are building a hi-tech industry cluster and preparing the local workforce needed for its sustained growth into the future.

We are excited to introduce Mobile Skylight, the nations first operational mobile UAS Traffic Management and drone security system, said Anthony Albanese, President, Gryphon Sensors.The system provides unmatched versatility and air surveillance capability enabling Beyond Visual Line of Sight commercial and security UAS operations in the States unique UAS flight corridor.

Empire State Development President, CEO & Commissioner Howard Zemsky said,The states significant investment in the Unmanned Aerial Systems industry is securing New York as a leader in this innovative technology, taking root and taking off in Central New York.

The states $35 million investment is already growing the UAS industry through the strategies outlined in the Central NY Rising plan. Supporting this effort is the strong regional presence of aerospace firms, such as Saab, Lockheed Martin and SRC, and regional assets, such as the NUAIR Alliance, which operates a FAA-designated Unmanned Aerial Systems test site.

Educational institutions, such as Syracuse University and Mohawk Valley Community College, have also aligned training curriculum and research efforts around the growing needs of this sector. New York State is also sponsoring Round Two of GENIUS NY program; one of the largest business accelerator programs in the world which caters to business proposals in the categories of Unmanned Systems and Data to Decisions Applications bringing together some of the most promising startups to help shape the future of Central New York.

Senator David J. Valesky said, Governor Cuomos promise to invest in Central New York has helped Gryphon Sensors become a leader in the regions growing Unmanned Aerial Systems industry, as well as created new opportunities for the local workforce and increased economic development.

Central New York Regional Economic Development Council Co-Chairs Robert Simpson, President and CEO of CenterState and Dr. Danielle Laraque-Arena, President of Upstate University Medical Center said, The launch of Gryphons mobile UTM system is a significant step in making the region home to the nations largest and most comprehensive 50-mile operational UTM corridor, enabling the next evolution of unmanned civil aviation. Its also a showcase of our regions assets, resources and capabilities with a wealth of existing private sector expertise and the potential to attract new businesses, jobs, and grow this industry even further.

Larry Brinker, interim president and CEO, NUAIR Alliance said, We are proud to be part of the comprehensive strategy to strengthen Central New York and the Mohawk Valleys global leadership position in the unmanned systems sector, and partner on advancing the systems and technologies that are critical to integrating UAS into the nations commercial airspace. With these expanding capabilities, the region is well positioned to capture a piece of the $140 billion global marketplace for this sector.
