Nightingale Security Drones Profile / Gain Key FAA Clearance

Author: Brian Karas, Published on Mar 10, 2017

Nightingale was the first drone targeted at security, and now they are the first drone security company to receive 2 key FAA exemptions, allowing them to expand how and when they operate.

Founder and CEO Jack Wu provided an update to IPVM on these exemptions, and the progress the company has made since their initial launch ~2 years ago.

In this report, we examine the current generation of Nightingale drones, the FAA exemptions they claim are unique to their company, plus share a recording of a live demo and explore how this might impact the market for other drone security companies.
