Percepto, which develops on-site autonomous drone solutions, has participated in an operational experimentation program with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Science and Technology Directorate in collaboration with the U.S. Army.  

The company explains it was invited to participate in the program to evaluate the ability of autonomous drones to perform intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance operations and to confirm the presence of adversary assets.

The event held at Quantico, Virginia, in March 2019 enabled more than 100 participants from the DHS, Department of Defense, Department of Energy, academia and the private sector to experience the Percepto Solution alongside 25 other technologies, in an urban warfare test scenario.


“Percepto was honoured to be invited to participate in this operational experimentation program,” said Dor Abuhasira, CEO of Percepto. “We embrace every opportunity to challenge our solution in the toughest environments anywhere in the world, and to showcase the wide range of applications that autonomous drones can be utilized.”

Percepto explains its technology is currently in use around the world including with a number of Fortune 500 organizations. The company explains it is ideally suited to any large-scale enterprises looking to improve security, increase productivity and reduce safety risks and operational costs.
