Daniel Elwell, former deputy and acting administrator at the Federal Aviation Administration, has taken a seat at Asylon's advisory board in an effort to help U.S. drone manufacturers expand offerings.
Elwell brings his background and knowledge in unmanned aircraft system policies to his new role, the Philadelphia-based UAS and robotic perimeter security company said Thursday.
He helped FAA manage civil aviation safety and efficiency in the U.S. and contributed in the development of the Department of Transportation's UAS Integration Pilot Program.
Elwell also carried out work as a member of FAA's Drone Advisory Committee.
FAA fielded Asylon's DroneCore technology to roll out an automated drone security program as part of the UAS IPP and Beyond initiatives.
Damon Henry, co-founder and CEO at Asylon, said the company performed more than 5,000 automated drone operations for various clients.
"[Elwell will] support continued progress on UAS policy and regulation for Asylon and the industry as a whole," he added.
